Im asking for your help

*** Alex Padilla has been endorsed for Secretary of State by the CDP ***

Alex Padilla

The first quarter is coming to a close. With your support, 2018 has been off to a busy, but productive start.

  1. Our resistance forced Trump to disband the Trump Kobach fraud commission.
  2. We successfully petitioned Congress to include a line item in the federal omnibus spending bill for new voting systems and cybersecurity. California is slated to receive $36 million.
  3. We successfully petitioned Governor Brown to include in his propoed state budget for 2018-2019 $134 million for new voting systems and cybersecurity. Combined with the required county match, that’s potentially another $268 million.
  4. In response to the Trump administration’s announcement last week to add a question about citizenship in the 2020 decennial Census, Attorney General Becerra and I announced that California would sue to challenge the addition of the question and protect California from the impacts of a population undercount.

The June 5th primary is only 67 days away and I’ve been traveling the state talking with voters and sharing all that we’re doing to improve elections in California:

  1. We’re implementing automatic voter registration. California Motor Voter is scheduled to go live on April 16.
  2. We’re implementing the Voter’s Choice Act. Five counties — Madera, Napa, Nevada, Sacramento, and San Mateo — will be have adopted the new elections model for 2018.
  3. Pre-registration of 16- and 17-year olds continues to climb. We’re quickly approaching 100,000 young people who have taken signed up.

But there is much more to do.

Tomorrow is an important fundraising deadline and I need your help to keep my campaign fundraising on track.

I’m asking for your help. Can you pitch in $15 to help me reach our goal?

Thank you in advance. With your support, I’ll continue to fight for our voting rights and for you.

With appreciation,

Alex Padilla

I need your help

Kamala Harris

This is a big moment, Michael. On Saturday, we’re facing the first FEC fundraising deadline of 2018. Let me explain why this matters:

First, the incredible response to these emails covers the modest cost of keeping the lights on for our campaign. It’s not much since our re-election is a few years away, but your donations keep me off the phone and fundraising so that I can focus on doing my job. That’s important.

Second, with Trump in the White House, it feels like every single day brings a new attack on the values we share. From assaults on our immigrant communities, attempts to take away our health care, and everything in between, we have to be vigilant in defending the cause of justice and equality.

Your donations allow me to focus on doing my job and help us build a coalition of people strong enough to challenge Trump’s radical agenda in Washington. So I’m asking:

Can I count on you to make a contribution to help us hit our fundraising goals before Saturday’s all-important FEC fundraising deadline?

As always, I’m genuinely grateful for everything you do. Supporters like you are the primary reason I’m serving the people of California at such a critical moment in our nation’s history.

Thanks for all you do.
