calling all volunteers!

Dear Friend,

It’s hard to believe that we are only 14 days away from the November 6th election. Over the next two weeks, I will be going door-to-door and calling voters in our district every day to encourage them to vote early and show up to the polls.

With your help, we can ensure the people of the Valley have a voice this November.

Please join me for phone banking and canvassing at any day and time before the election. Even just a few hours will make a big difference!

To volunteer, please contact Victor Torres and provide your availability.

NEW POLL: Andrew Janz within 5 points

View this email in your browser

Dear Fresno,

Today, Fight Back CA released an exclusive poll conducted in California’s 22nd Congressional District that shows Democratic candidate Andrew Janz is within 5 points of Devin Nunes! What’s more, it shows that Andrew has the wind at his back as we head into the last two weeks of the election.


Because of your support, Fight Back has been in the 22nd district since May communicating to Latino and independent voters about Devin Nunes’ horrible record in Congress – his silence on the trade war that is devastating farmers in his district, his silence on the Trump family separation policy, and his politicization of the Intelligence Committee as a virtual arm of the Trump White House.


Now we have a chance of sending Devin Nunes home and sending Andrew Janz to Congress to work every day on behalf of his constituents in Fresno and Tulare counties, unlike Devin Nunes who hasn’t held a town hall in his district since 2010.


I am asking for your help one more time to help us get Andrew Janz over the finish line.


Here are the key findings from the poll:

  • Devin Nunes clings to just a five-point lead, 51% to 46%. Andrew Janz has cut his deficit in half from our September poll (51% Nunes-40% Janz).
  • Andrew Janz is leading among independent voters for the first time in this race, 49% to 40%. In September, Nunes led independents 40% to 37%. A candidate must win independents in order to win the district.
  • Andrew Janz has an overwhelming lead with Latino voters, 69% to 26%. Nunes has dropped nine points with Latinos, from 35% to 26%, since September.
  • Andrew Janz has successfully consolidated Democratic support in the district.


I served with Devin Nunes in Congress, and I know that district deserves better from their Representative. But no one thought until this year that a district that Nunes has consistently won by 20 and 30 points can be in play.


But with your help, we have proven that any district can be competitive when there is the right combination of early communication, a strong Democratic candidate, and an incumbent who has left his district’s needs behind for his own self-interest.


Please help us fund the last two weeks of our campaign to defeat Devin Nunes and send Andrew Janz to Washington.


And while we are at it, winning a Democratic majority on November 6th!


Together we will change the direction of our country.

Thank you for your continued support,

The Hon. Ellen Tauscher

600,000 Californians already voted in midterm election

TJ Cox for Congress

“Nearly 600,000 Californians have already voted in midterm election”

KCRA Sacramento



Huge news:


According to The Hill, the current early vote trends across the country “hint at huge turnout” in the 2018 midterm election. In California, early vote returns are out-pacing results from the 2014 midterm — which is a good sign, but we NEED to make sure this trend continues in California’s 21st district. We’re a little behind.


This is our best chance to finally unseat David Valadao, but we have to do everything we can to make sure Democrats get to the polls — we simply cannot lag behind. We’re asking everyone in California to step up with a donation to help us flip this seat. Can you chip in a donation today?


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

Thanks for your support,
