A good president?

*** No candidate for U.S. Senate has been endorsed by the CDP ***

Kevin often says that he’s not running against anyone in this race, and it’s true.

He’s running against the D.C. status quo.

He’s running for the leadership of progressive values that Californians hold dear.

He’s running to fight back against the disastrous Trump agenda every step of the way.

He’s running to represent you.

We’ve got 12 days left in this campaign and 982 more donations left to hit our goal of 2,000 donations before June 5. Please chip in $3 right now.

Unlike Senator Feinstein, who said there was a chance Trump could be a “good president,” Kevin has fought since day 1 to protect California and hold Trump accountable.

He knows that there’s no room to negotiate or cooperate with a racist, sexist, and dangerously inept administration.

Too many Democrats in the Senate are capitulating under the Trump regime — from approving CIA director and former torture advocate Gina Haspel, to approving Trump’s Supreme Court nominee without enough of a fight.

Kevin will be a different kind of Senator.

He’ll be a leader the people of California can be proud of.

He just needs your support to get there — please chip in $3 to help him get there.


Thanks,

Team KDL

Tuck Refuses to Disavow Right Wing Mailer

*** Tony Thurmond has been endorsed for State Superintendent of Public Instruction by the CDP ***

CDP

In the race for Superintendent of Public Instruction, Marshall Tuck is benefiting enormously from the support from billionaires aligned with Betsy DeVos, including a Republican slate mailer featuring Tuck, Newt Gingrich and John Cox – Trump’s candidate for Governor, which Tuck has refused to disavow.

Betsy DeVos’s allies and donors are working overtime to defeat our CDP-endorsed candidate, Assemblymember Tony Thurmond – a progressive champion who has devoted his entire life to advancing our values.

When a candidate chooses to accept support from people linked to Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich, they’re making a clear statement about their priorities. California Democrats must elect Tony Thurmond and defeat the billionaires’ agenda of defunding public schools.

Here are three things you can do to help get the word out about Tony Thurmond:

Share Tony’s campaign ads on Facebook

Download a supporter letter to send to your network of voters

Share our tweet setting the record straight

Tony Thurmond will fiercely resist the Trump/Devos/Tuck education agenda. And he will fight for the quality education our kids deserve by working for:

  • New investment in recruiting and retaining great teachers, and increasing teacher pay
  • Policies that teach kids how to think critically and creatively, not how to pass standardized tests
  • Keeping our kids safe from gun violence and investing in school-based mental health services

As Democrats, we know that our state institutions need strong, progressive leadership. We must elect Tony Thurmond as Supertintendent of Public Instruction to safeguard democratic, public education in California.

Please join us in doing everything you can to elect Tony Thurmond on June 5.

Democratically Yours, 

Sandra Lowe, Senior Strategist
California Democratic Party

Enacting a 21st Century California Bill of Rights

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

As we get closer to election day, I wanted to make sure you had the chance to see my 21st Century California Bill of Rights. California can remain on the frontiers of change in America, but that requires a Governor who is a skilled, passionate, and sincere public servant. In this election, we have a chance to be pro-California by enacting an agenda that once again puts us on the leading edge. That’s why I pledge to enact the following policies:

Did you hear?

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

Donald Trump’s trying to shred a critical lifeline for one million women in California and four million women nationwide.

Through an important program called Title X, health clinics like Planned Parenthood’s offer life-saving access to cancer screenings, family-planning services and more.

But if Trump has his way, Title X won’t be around to save a loved one’s health or wellbeing.

I recently led 20 attorneys general to file a court brief in support of protecting the program. Our families in California and beyond are counting on us to fight and win.

Can you give $5 today and stand with me?

Today I wrote the Trump Administration outlining the stakes for California families. And again I urged the Trump Administration to drop its decision.

This isn’t the first time Trump’s tried to slash access to birth control and other family planning services.

We’ve beat him in court before but we need another victory again.

Are you with me? Please chip in $5 or more if you can

Washington Republicans should not control a woman’s right to healthcare.

 

Thanks for standing with me,

Xavier

San Diego CityBeat Endorses Dave Jones for AG!

San Diego CityBeat Endorses Dave Jones for Attorney General

The San Diego CityBeat weekly magazine endorsed Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones for Attorney General on Wednesday, becoming the latest publication to throw its support behind Jones.

The SD Beat, which has a circulation of 50,000 readers across San Diego County, agrees with Jones that current Appointed Attorney General Xavier Becerra has not been carrying out important responsibilities of the office of Attorney General.

Read the editorial: “On the one hand, there’s nothing particularly disagreeable about incumbent (well, of sorts) Xavier Becerra… [but] it’s a bit telling that he failed to secure his own party’s nomination at the Democratic State Convention a few months ago, while his Democratic opponent, Dave Jones, actually secured more delegate votes. [We] agree with Jones that there’s more to the job than resistance in the form of lawsuits [against the Trump administration]. There needs to be more done when it comes to enforcing environmental regulations, gun laws and the opioid crisis.”

“Dave Jones, who has served two terms as insurance commissioner and leads a consumer protection agency, is a fresh candidate with strong ideals and ideas.”

The San Diego CityBeat joins the Sacramento Bee, San Jose Mercury News, East Bay Times, Modesto Bee, Santa Cruz Sentinel, and San Francisco Bay Guardian as publications that have given their support to Jones in the Attorney General race.

“News publications, such as the San Diego CityBeat, do their homework and provide well-informed recommendations to California voters ahead of this crucial election,” Jones said. “I’m thrilled to have the support of the San Diego CityBeat and thankful that it understands in addition to suing Trump there are other important responsibilities of the Attorney General that are not getting done.”
