A year of Trump

Early this morning, on the anniversary of his inauguration, President Trump shut down the federal government.

He had an easy opportunity to demonstrate presidential leadership and he failed miserably.

If after a year of President Trump you’ve had enough, chip in $10 today so that we can take the fight to Washington and stand up for our progressive values.

Here in California, State Senate Leader Kevin de León has passed balanced, on-time budgets that invest in healthcare, education, infrastructure and our most vulnerable communities.

But leadership isn’t just about balancing budgets.

The moment Trump was elected, Kevin launched our California Resistance.

We knew Trump would launch attack after attack on California, because by a margin of 10 to 1 – our electorate rejected his politics fueled by resentment, bigotry, and misogyny.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Without equivocating or wavering, Kevin is leading the charge to defend our immigrant communities, bolster our landmark climate policies, protect California taxpayers, and ensure a free and open internet.

Today, the Golden State is stronger and more resilient than ever before – a beacon of hope in uncertain times.

Donate to our campaign today so that Kevin can keep leading the California Resistance and tell Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans that Californians have had enough.

Thank you,

Team KDL

Ending this government shutdown

Kamala Harris

Exactly one year after President Trump was sworn into office, our government has shut down. Americans don’t deserve this kind of dysfunction. We have to act now.

If you believe Republican leaders like Trump and McConnell should pass a bipartisan agreement that reopens the government and protects the Dreamers, then sign my petition today demanding the GOP end the Trump shutdown.

Add your name

Fresno County –

Government by crisis is not an effective way to lead this country and we need to fight back now if we’re going to reopen the government, fund essential priorities and save the Dreamers from being deported.

I am confident that if enough of us come together this weekend we can make Republican leaders hear the voices of the American people who are rightly frustrated. Let’s use this opportunity to reject the false choices of our politics and do the right thing. So I’m asking:

Will you sign my petition to Republican leaders demanding they pass a bipartisan resolution that will reopen the government and protect the Dreamers from deportation? Your voice is needed in this fight now, more than ever.

This is not some partisan political game — this is about people’s lives. Hundreds of thousands of federal employees, many of whom are living paycheck to paycheck, are facing furloughs — and the Dreamers are still terrified that they could face deportation.

I think you’ll agree that the American people deserve better than a dysfunctional Congress that won’t stand up to this president’s weak leadership and anti-immigrant policies.

We need this government shutdown to end as quickly as possible and that’s why I’m asking you to make your voice heard today and tell Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and all Republicans to do the right thing:

Sign my petition to GOP leaders demanding they stand up to Trump and pass a bipartisan resolution that will reopen the government and protect the Dreamers.

Thanks for all you do,

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California

CAMPAIGN UPDATE: Sneak peek of my new campaign video

I have exciting news from my campaign for Attorney General and I want you to be the first to see it. We are releasing a video that documents my record of fighting for progressive Values.

Watch the video here!

As Insurance Commissioner I lead a statewide law enforcement agency which fights for consumers.

I have taken on:

  • Big insurance companies
  • Corrupt public officials and CEOs
  • Hospitals committing fraud and cracked down on the underground economy.

I have saved Californians over $2 billion by rejecting unfair rate hikes. And I have fought corporate mergers that would harm consumers.

That’s the type of Attorney General I will be:  A fighter, not a follower.

Please join me in the fight by endorsing my candidacy.

California Insurance Commissioner and Candidate for Attorney General

1 year of Trump → 1 day of shutdown

Join us.

On Trump’s one-year anniversary as president, we’re on day one of a government shutdown.

Make no mistake, Jeff. This shutdown happened because this president and his party are too incompetent and ill-intentioned to do their jobs and keep the federal government up and running. It happened because they are incapable of governing, and it’s time for it to end.

Here’s the good news: We can take back the House AND the Senate from them this November.

Whether we win or lose this year depends on the work we put in right now. And there’s no better way to commemorate Trump’s first year in office than by showing him we’re ready to elect Democrats who will stand up to his awful agenda.

By organizing in every community nationwide, 2018 can be the year we elect candidates who will defend health care for all and level the playing field for working families. It can be the year we elect a Congress that will hold this administration accountable, and it can be the year we start getting this country back on track.

Let this day be a turning point. Let it be the day that we roll up our sleeves and commit to working together to make sure that we elect Democrats who will fight for every American.

Thanks for all you do,

Tom Perez

Chair
Democratic National Committee

Keep marching

Alex Padilla

A year ago, I had the honor of speaking at the Los Angeles Women’s March and addressing a gathering of 750,000 people from throughout Los Angeles, while walking alongside the most important woman in my life, my wife, Angela.
This year, we’re going to do it again because Trump has continuously attacked our communities, our families, our friends, our neighbors, and our values. He’s targeting our civil and voting rights, spewing racist rhetoric, pushing racist anti-immigrant policies and raising taxes on hardworking families.
We must keep marching on…not just today, but into the 2018 midterm elections and into the 2020 Presidential election.
If you agree, please make a $5 contribution to my re-election campaign so that I can continue to fight against Trump’s dangerous agenda and continue to stand up for all Californians.

Michael, one big personal reason we marched last year — and will march again this year — is because we want our three sons to know that we were there. We want our sons to understand that women’s rights are human rights and that we all need to do our part, because when we fight together for basic human rights, we win.

Last year, as we marched, we felt optimistic about our future. Though this past year was difficult, we did see a lot of victories, from major democratic gains in the Virginia House of Delegates to the historic win of Senator Doug Jones in Alabama.
We must keep marching. We must keep resisting.
Chip in $5 now so that California can continue to have leaders that are not afraid to stand up to Trump.
In the next election, let’s keep marching to the polls! After seeing the momentum from this past year, we have no doubt, we will win.
Thank you,

Alex Padilla
California Secretary of State
