Where do you stand on the death penalty?

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 

I’ve long been opposed to the death penalty. It is deeply immoral, irreversible, and ineffective. And if we are going to transform our country’s broken criminal justice system, we must be fearless — unafraid to speak hard truths. 
Last week, my home state of California issued a moratorium on the death penalty — a system that has proven time and again to be an abject failure. It has wasted taxpayer money, has not kept our communities safe, and has discriminated against those with mental illness and people of color. 
This is an important step forward. But I believe we must take it one step further and abolish the federal death penalty. This failed system is immoral, and as President I would lead the fight to end it. It’s simply the right thing to do.

You left us speechless

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Wow! We hoped that the first days of Beto’s campaign for president would be huge, but we didn’t know they would be quite like this. You left us speechless. Together, we made history by raising a record-breaking $6.1 MILLION for Beto in the first 24 hours. That’s more than any presidential campaign launch ever. But we can’t slow down. Our next big moment is March 30, and we need you with us.

Beto for America

 

Wow! We hoped that the first days of Beto’s campaign for president would be huge, but we didn’t know they would be quite like this. You left us speechless.

Together, we made history by raising a record-breaking $6.1 MILLION for Beto in the first 24 hours. That’s more than any presidential campaign launch ever. That kind of people power is what allows us to build a campaign at the scale needed to win.

But we can’t slow down. Our next big moment is March 30, and we need you with us. People across the country will gather together for livestream watch parties to tune in to Beto’s launch rally in El Paso.

Can Beto count on you to host a livestream watch party in your home or another venue on March 30? To build a winning campaign, we need as many people as possible gathering friends and neighbors together for this moment.

Yes, I can host »

This is a long email about where Trump stands in the polls and what the DNC is doing to fight back in the months ahead:

The 2020 election will be the fight of our lifetimes, and the Democratic Party is already gearing up for what is sure to be a long and hard-fought race for the White House and seats nationwide.

Democrats/Join us.

I’m coming to you today to share a key component of our party’s strategy for taking back the White House and seats nationwide in 2020.

In order to win the presidency next year, Democrats need to keep Donald Trump’s poll numbers around 41 or 42 percent. If his approval ratings stay there, we’ve got a good shot at taking back the White House and seats across the country. Here’s a quick look at where his approval numbers have been recently:

39% -- Reuters/Ipsos, 2/27 - 3/5. 41% -- Politico/Morning Consult, 3/8 - 3/10. 45% -- The Hill/HarrisX, 3/5 - 3/6.

This is our 11th hour

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

.

Inslee

This is our eleventh hour.

For far too long, in far too many places, our leaders ignored and denied the evidence.

And now, our future is in peril. Climate change is the existential threat to our way of life. I’m running for president because if we don’t act right here and right now, it’ll be too late to prevent the worst consequences.

In a moment, I’ll tell you more about our mission to combat climate change. But first let me ask you directly: Will you make a donation of $5 or more to unlock your founding donor card?

Take our first, official Medicare for All survey. We’ll review the results and get them to Bernie this week. So we’re hoping to hear from you today.

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

When Bernie Sanders started talking about a Medicare for All, single-payer health care system, they called him a radical. They said it was a fringe idea.

But then our 2016 campaign happened, and because of you health care as a right is now an idea supported by a majority of the American people.

So today, the calls from our opponents have changed. They don’t say we’re radical anymore. Today they say things like “slow down,” or that incremental change is the best we can do. You’ll mostly hear those calls coming from inside of D.C. think tanks, or from insurance company lobbyists and people with excellent health care.

So we want to get a sense from you on how big of a deal Medicare for All would be for our country, or whether we should “slow down.”

Take our first official Medicare for All survey. We’ll review the results and get them to Bernie this week. So we’re hoping to hear from you today.

Here’s the first question of the survey:

We really want to go for this

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

Two weeks from today, we close the books on the first official fundraising deadline of our campaign. Shortly after, we’ll report how much money we’ve raised and how many individual donations got us to that number.

We have an audacious goal in mind for that deadline. One we hesitate to share today because, frankly, it’s probably a bit out of reach…

But we’d love to go for it. Because if we got there … we can only tell you the political establishment and corporate media would be absolutely floored.

If we have a good day today, we’ll have a chance. So we’re looking for as many individual donations as we can get before midnight. Then we’ll make a decision on whether or not to go for it. So we’re asking:

Can you make a $3 donation to our campaign as we approach the end of our first official FEC fundraising deadline? The report we put out will send a very important message about why we’re the best campaign to beat Trump.

“I wasn’t born to run”

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Amy for America
empowered by Salsa

We wanted to make sure you saw this quote from Amy about running for president:

As the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Minnesota, Amy knows a thing or two about breaking glass ceilings. From the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office to the U.S. Senate, she’s found success by finding common ground, speaking truth to power, and getting results. And that’s exactly what she’ll do as President of the United States.

Our story

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

Almost two years ago, Beto started a very different kind of campaign.

Beto for America

 

Almost two years ago, Beto started a very different kind of campaign.

Beto and family

We set out to listen to people in 254 counties. People who hadn’t been listened to in a long time.

Beto and a big crowd

Along the way, our team grew and grew. People started volunteering at levels we’d never seen before. Opening up their homes, knocking doors.

You asked, here are some answers:

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
 
Friend,
We got a lot of great feedback and questions from the survey my team sent around earlier this month. I thought I’d take a few minutes to respond to some of your questions:

Do you support the Green New Deal?
— Robin from OK

Yes — this was actually the very first question I got out on the campaign trail. Climate change has imperiled our planet, and it’s going to require bold action like the Green New Deal to save it. That means making a dramatic investment in green energy, which we know will create the jobs of the future. The United States of America needs to be leading this effort.

How do you feel about LGBTQ rights and what will you do for us?
— Michael from OH

LGBTQ rights are civil rights. But right now in over half the country, LGBTQ people can still legally be discriminated against just because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. I helped to introduce the Equality Act, to fully protect LGBTQ Americans from discrimination under federal law, because no one should ever have to live in fear of being fired from their job or evicted from their home or denied an education just because of who they are or who they love.

We’ve got to ensure that our most vulnerable have the resources to protect themselves from those that would harm them. That means addressing the systemic, ingrained racism that runs rampant in this country. How will you do that?
— Rachel from TX

Systemic racism in our country permeates our public policy and every aspect of public life — erecting barriers to access, from economic opportunity to educational opportunity, to clean air and water, to affordable, quality healthcare, to a justice system that fairly applies the law, to equal access to the ballot box, and more.

Our Family, Welcome!

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 

I want welcome you to our California Democratic Party family. In my more than 15 years of active involvement as a grassroots activist, County Chair, Party Secretary, and now Vice-Chair, that’s what I’ve found it to be: a family. We have our siblings in labor, grassroots activist cousins, and yes, even that uncle or aunt you disagree with on just about everything and try to avoid. But, above it all in our California Democratic Party family, we share a common core commitment that we can do better, and it is up to each one of us to make that happen.

Sign the petition: We can fix America’s housing crisis

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 
Warren for President

Housing isn’t just the number one cost for most families. It affects the jobs we can get, the schools our kids can go to, and the kind of communities we can live in.

So if our government gets housing policy wrong, it hurts millions of families. And it has.

For decades, Washington has cut investments in housing for middle-class and lower-income Americans — even when rents shot up and up.

And decades of outright discrimination by the federal government denied Black families the same kinds of homeownership opportunities available to white families. Since housing is how so many families build up wealth over time, that’s a part of why there’s such a wide racial wealth gap.

We’ve got to get this right.

So this week, I’ve reintroduced my American Housing and Economic Mobility Act to bring down rents by 10% across America, create 1.5 million new jobs, and take the first steps to address the racial wealth gap — all without adding a dime to the deficit.

Add your name to become a citizen-cosponsor today, and join the fight to pass this bill.
