The Nurses Are Fighters…

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Improving access to high quality health care has been a foundation of my career. From authoring single payer legislation in Congress to challenging the Trump Administration’s attempts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act to fighting anti-competitive practices among California’s hospitals, I’ve fought on behalf of California’s patients and providers to improve the health of all.

That’s why I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of the California Nurses Association and its partner, National Nurses United.

In their announcement, they noted my many efforts at “guaranteeing healthcare for our patients, our families, and our communities.”

The nurses are fighters, and with their support, I pledge to keep moving California in the right direction and protect the rights of all Californians.

Will you join them and other health care organizations, including the National Union of Healthcare Workers, Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, SEIU, and California Association of Psychiatric Technicians, in supporting my campaign to remain your Attorney General?

We are growing

*** No candidate for Governor has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

We are now less than two months out from the election, and momentum is building. Delaine’s poll numbers continue to grow, and our volunteer pool has jumped by nearly 50% in just the past three weeks. 

Only a few percentage points now separate the top five candidates. That’s why I just made the call to hire more organizers across the state to help spread the word. Can you donate now to support one of our new organizers?

People are just now starting to pay attention, and they are excited to learn to learn about Delaine, the candidate who cuts to the chase and has real solutions to solve our housing crisis, educate the next generation, and finally provide universal healthcare for all Californians.  

Read the LA Times profile of a day in the life of Delaine on the campaign trail.

I truly believe that we can do this. I also know we don’t need the most money, but we do need enough. Can you chip in another $29.20 today?

Every dime that we raise will go to engaging more people in the campaign and sharing information about Delaine directly with voters.

CA Assembly Proposes Dolores Huerta Day

California Assembly Proposes Bill to Designate April 10th as Dolores Huerta Day

Sacramento, CA – On Thursday, April 12, 2018, members of the California State Assembly, Eloise Gomez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) and Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), will be hosting a reception at the State Capitol honoring Dolores Huerta and her lifelong commitment to justice and civil rights. The ceremony comes in light of Dolores Huerta’s recent 88th birthday on April 10 and Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes’s Assembly Bill 2644 proposing to designate April 10 as Dolores Huerta Day.

Dolores will be honored on the assembly floor followed by a few words from Dolores herself and a reception with family, friends, and members of the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center to commemorate this major feat.

Dolores Huerta Day will not be a state holiday, but instead, a designated day to recognize Dolores and the labor and civil rights movements she dedicates her life to. If the bill passes, schools will be encouraged to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life.

“I’m happy to hear that our young learners will have the opportunity to learn more about social justice and civil rights because there is still a lot of work to do by the Dolores Huerta Foundation. We have low-income communities with inequitable representation in local education, and at the same time, they are facing tough anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric, all happening right in front of our faces. We need to continue organizing to empower communities so that they can fight for their representation, voting rights, and an equitable education to change the future for a fair and just society and human rights for all,” comments Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

“I believe this is a fitting recognition for someone who has dedicated her life to empowering others,” adds Camila Chavez, Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.

Ratings Change in CA-21

*** TJ Cox has been endorsed for CD21 by the CDP ***

Real quick.

I’m sure you heard the news that Paul Ryan is abandoning his post as Speaker of the House.

This is as strong an indicator as any that Republicans are terrified of what’s to come.

Last week, our race outlook was upgraded and added to the list of the most competitive races in the country.

As the only Democrat in California running in a 1:1 matchup with an incumbent Republican — this news only adds to our growing momentum. Right now it’s crucial that we push hard to flip this seat.

Can you rush an urgent donation to build on this momentum?

Chip in here:

You’re the best,


— begin forwarded message —

BREAKING: The Cook Political Report just upgraded TJ Cox’s race outlook in CA-21 from to “Likely Republican” to “Lean Republican.”

Can you chip in $5 or more to TJ Cox to build on this momentum?


This is big for us.

FIRST: TJ Cox entered the race to unseat Trump-ally David Valadao in CA-21
                 THEN: He became the FIRST CA candidate on to the Democrats’ ‘Red-to-Blue’ program
    NOW: The experts at the Cook Political Report lifted his chances to FLIP CA-21!

Here’s why this is a HUGE DEAL, Michael:

California’s House races are critical to our chances at the House majority. TJ Cox is the FIRST and ONLY California Democrat running in a 1:1 matchup with an incumbent Republican — and he’s gaining momentum!

We need to build on this rating change right away to prove that we have the support and resources to flip this seat. Can you chip in a donation right away to help TJ Cox unseat David Valadao?

$10 >> $35 >> $50 >>
$100 >> $250 >> other >>

Thanks for your support,

Team TJ
