thanks to you:


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


Americans made their voices heard this week and defeated hatred and division at the ballot boxes nationwide. We had some big wins and were able to flip some seats from red to blue, as well as gain majorities in state legislatures.

The reason we have been able to succeed is because of people like you. Your support is making defeating Devin Nunes possible. Thank you!

We’re now less than a year out from Election Day and I already feel the momentum changing. Things are moving fast and I want to make sure you stay up to date on the latest from the campaign trail. The best way to do that is following my campaign on social media.

Once again, thank you for your continued support.

Thanks,

We marched, protested, and won


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


Alex Padilla

Last year’s presidential election result was shocking and disheartening to so many of us. It was difficult to try to explain to my kids how a man so filled with hate and disrespect for women, immigrants, and people of color could be elected to our nation’s highest office. But he was.

But since November 8, 2016, we’ve marched, we’ve protested, and we’ve fought relentlessly to defend the values we hold dear. Tuesday, resistance prevailed.

As your Secretary of State, I have defended California from Trump’s terrible policies and attacks, including his efforts to erode our right to vote.

But there’s more to do. I’m running for reelection in 2018. Would you please donate $3 to my campaign to keep this winning streak going?

Since last November, we have resisted Trump in order to defend the values we hold dear: from voting rights, to immigrants’ rights, to women’s rights, to LGBTQ rights, to the right to healthcare for every American, to fight climate change, and against tax policies that hurts working families.

Now let’s think about Tuesday. On the eve of the one-year milestone of Trump’s election — and the one year marker before next year’s midterm elections — voters in Virginia, New Jersey, and beyond showed that we reject Trump’s divisive agenda. We will fight back with the most powerful force our democracy offers, our votes, and we’ll keep standing up for what we believe in.

The results from Virginia are important, especially because of the massive amounts of fear-mongering Ed Gillespie used to try to win. But voters rejected his awful rhetoric and elected Ralph Northam instead. This is powerful. And it shows that Trump’s influence is shrinking.

We need to keep this momentum going into the 2018 election cycle. I am running for California Secretary of State and I promise to keep resisting Trump’s terrible policies. Donate $3 today to help me do just that.

Here’s a few more highlights to be inspired by from Tuesday’s Elections:

New Jersey:

  • The Governor’s office flipped from red to blue because voters elected Phil Murphy

Virginia:

  • Ralph Northam won the Governor’s race
  • Justin Fairfax won the Lt. Governor’s race, he is the second African-American to be elected to a statewide office in Virginia
  • Danica Roem (HD-13) is the first openly transgender person to be elected in a U.S. State Legislature
  • Hala Ayala and Elizabeth Guzman also made history last night, as the first Latinas elected to the Virginia House of Delegates!

Thanks for everything you do,

Alex Padilla
California Secretary of State

The momentum is building — we can do this!


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

On Tuesday, November 7, we saw something happen in Virginia and New Jersey that truly inspired me as a progressive and Democrat. With so much at stake in our nation, I was proud to see Democrats come together and deliver a sweeping set of victories, from gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey all the way down the ballot to the Palm Springs City Council, which just elected its first transgender councilmember.Democrats are continuing to carry the torch against the Trump Administration’s bigoted and divisive policies, and I stand as ready as ever to meet the challenges we face head on.

Can I count on you to stand with me?

It has been a busy few weeks on my campaign, and the momentum is building! I am truly honored to have received the support of the California Teachers Association, which represents 325,000 educators in California’s public schools and colleges! CTA’s endorsement was especially touching for me because of an amazing woman and educator I have looked up to my entire life: my mom.

As you can see above, she was truly ecstatic, which isn’t surprising given that she is a former substitute teacher and high school art teacher of 19 years! I’m proud to have CTA’s endorsement because they represent educators like my mom who selflessly devote their lives to preparing the next generation of Californians to be competitive and successful in today’s global economy.

Having the support of California’s working men and women is truly humbling. That’s why I’m also excited to have earned the support of SEIU California! Representing social workers, nurses, classroom aides, security officers, college professors, home care workers, janitors, and others, SEIU CA stands up for the rights of over 700,000 working Californians. I’m honored to have their strong support.

Alabama

Kamala Harris

This week, Democrats won incredible victories by embracing our diversity and rejecting the politics of hate.

In a few short weeks, we can do it again in Alabama, where we have a real chance to fill Jeff Sessions’ vacated Senate seat with Doug Jones — a man of integrity who has fearlessly taken on the KKK and fought for working families his entire career.

Doug’s opponent is just like Donald Trump — a divisive and dangerous politician who preys on the most vulnerable among us. His name is Roy Moore, and he is anti-woman, anti-LGBT, and believes Muslim Americans, like Keith Ellison, shouldn’t be allowed to serve in Congress.

Doug Jones is a good man who needs our help.

I never thought a Democrat would have a chance to win in Alabama, but Doug is running an incredible campaign — embracing what makes America truly great: our diversity, our character, and our resilience in the face of adversity.

If he wins, it will be a devastating blow to Trump’s agenda — making it even more difficult for Republicans to take away our health care, cut taxes on the wealthy, or approve the radical judicial nominees of this president.

We need to do what Democrats did on Tuesday: show up and be the difference in taking back our country. That’s why I’m asking you today to support Doug’s campaign.

Thanks for everything you do.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senate, California
