Checking in


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


 

This election will be the most expensive in California history, and if you read too many of the headlines, it starts to sound like the only thing that matters is the money.

Well I’m not going to sugar-coat it: We are the underdog. We do have a very tough road ahead. And while people matter most in this campaign, if we don’t increase our fundraising, it’ll be harder for us to win the fights ahead for California families.

We’re now just $2,751 way from our end-of-month goal, but you could help us finish this month strong before time’s up. Will you chip in?

It’s easy to get discouraged these days.

But when I talk to folks across our state about this election, I know there’s hope for California, and I’m going to do everything I can to keep this campaign and our state on the right road.

If you’re with me, chip in now, before the deadline passes, and together we’ll keep on fighting for California.

Thanks for your support. It means the world to me.

John

No more “boys will be boys”


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


 

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

There is an old saying, ‘the fish stinks from the head.’ The pervasive culture of not just sexual harassment, but sexual assault that permeates the halls of our State Capitol needs to be terminated.

As governor of California, I promise that the buck truly will stop with me. I will have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to sexual harassment in the Capitol and I won’t stop there.

Sexual harassment and assault in the workforce is hardly confined to government, corporate executive suites, or Hollywood.

Low wage workers in the fast food, hotel, and other service industries face these challenges every day, and they need our voices and our protections as much or even more than anyone else. Young employees in every walk of life and of every sexual orientation must be given more support in resisting inappropriate advances from any corner, including The Boss.

Let’s stand together,

Delaine

Sign the petition: Impeach Trump

Add your name to the petition to impeach Donald Trump.
Sign now

Friend,

Yesterday, a former Trump policy adviser pleaded guilty to lying about his communication with Russian officials. Trump’s campaign chair and his deputy campaign manager were also indicted for conspiracy against the United States.

We are in a crisis. The president is a clear and present danger to the country. That’s why I’ve started a new effort called Need to Impeach.

Donald Trump has brought us to the brink of nuclear war, obstructed justice, and taken money from foreign governments. He must be removed from office immediately.

Sign the petition: Call on members of Congress to start the impeachment process now.

Need to impeach

Need to impeach

Trump has exceeded the historical standard for impeachment. Failure to act now gives him license to ramp up his reckless behavior and terrorize American lives.

This is not the time for the political establishment to focus on their personal and political agendas. They should be concerned about our democracy, not just reelection.

There is an urgent need to do what is morally right — and that’s why I’m calling on members of Congress to take a stand on impeachment.

Add your name: Urge Congress to hold Trump accountable for his actions.

Thank you,

Tom Steyer
President
NextGen America

19 Senators


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


Last week, nineteen Democratic senators signed a letter to Donald Trump’s EPA administrator Scott Pruitt.

 

The letter called into question the methods used by Pruitt in repealing the Clean Power Plan, a plan implemented by President Obama designed to protect us from harmful pollution from coal-fired power plants. Nineteen Democratic senators signed that letter.

 

But Sen. Feinstein was not one of them.

 

California needs two Senators who will stand up to the Trump administration and protect our environment and values. Will you help make that happen?

 

It’s up to progressives everywhere to stand up and fight back. That’s why I was so disappointed that Senator Feinstein chose not to sign the letter.

 

But frankly, we’ve seen this before. When Senator Feinstein said of Donald Trump: “I believe he can be a good President.”

 

I do not believe he can be a good President.

 

Or when Senator Feinstein called for “patience” over Donald Trump’s Presidency.

 

I do not believe now is the time for patience. 

 

Will you join me and fellow progressives today in standing up against Donald Trump and help bring our fight to Washington?

 

When I got in this race, I called for an end to incrementalism and capitulation when it comes to our progressive values. The only way we can defend and expand the California Dream for everyone is by standing up and fighting back against attempts to harm it.

 

That’s why I hope you’ll stand with me.

 

 

Thank you,

Kevin

Russian interference is not a hoax


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


Alex Padilla

Trump has taken lying to a whole new level.

 

Last week while speaking to the press, Trump said that Russian interference during the 2016 election was a “hoax” that Democrats fabricated “as an excuse for losing the election.”

 

Here’s the truth: the intelligence community, the military, and even members of Trump’s administration, including White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, have all acknowledged that Russian interference is not a hoax. Several of Trump’s closest allies know that foreign interference in last year’s election is not only a reality, it also a threat to our democracy.

 

And the indictment of Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, along with George Papadopoulos’ guilty plea and admission to making false statements to FBI investigators, will only make Trump even more desperate to save himself.

 

Now more than ever, we need to make sure that we have public officials who aren’t afraid to stand up to Trump and his lies. I am running for re-election as Secretary of State to do just that. Can you chip in $3 to my campaign so that I can continue to fight Trump and defend California?

 

Michael, it’s extremely frustrating to watch Trump repeatedly lie and put our privacy, our national security, and our democracy at risk. But we can’t afford to just be frustrated, we must resist and persist with action.

 

Since day one, I’ve spoken out against Trump’s lies about voter fraud and his denial of Russian interference.

 

When Trump established his fake voter fraud commission, I pointed out loudly and clearly that the commission’s true agenda is to suppress the vote. I also made clear that California would not comply with their invasive requests for the personal information of every registered voter. If Trump believes there’s a witch hunt happening, it’s the misguided effort of this commission.

 

I’ll keep fighting back, but I need your help.

 

That’s why I’m asking you for a $3 contribution so that we can ensure that California continues to lead the resistance against Trump. As your Secretary of State, I will continue to do my part.

 

Working together, we resist, and we will win.

 

Thank you,

Alex Padilla
California Secretary of State
