Xavier’s opponents

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

With his primary quickly approaching, Xavier needs to know that you have his back in his fight to protect our California families and values: will you contribute $5 or more today to show your support?

At two candidate forums this week, Xavier’s Republican opponents criticized him for challenging President Trump’s numerous attempts to strip away protections for hardworking people across our state. They said if elected, they wouldn’t spend time fighting Trump’s radical agenda in court.

Xavier’s committed to fighting and winning to protect people like his parents — a construction and clerical worker — who worked hard to build our country.

Whether to stand up against reckless decisions in Washington that threaten our families and values — or to take down gangs, sex-traffickers, and people who defraud our students, workers and seniors, he’s got our back.

Will you pitch in $5 now to support Xavier?

Yesterday CNBC called Xavier “the biggest thorn” in Trump’s side, but he needs your help to see every fight underway across the finish line.

 

Thanks for standing with us,

Team Becerra

Sign My Urgent Petition Right Now

I am reaching out this afternoon to ask you to sign my urgent petition in opposition to the latest Republican attack on our health care. This is a developing situation, and I hope you’ll take a moment to read this.

Here’s what we have heard: the White House and conservative groups will unveil a new health care repeal plan later this month. The plan guts pre-existing condition protections, slashes funding to help lower-income Americans afford health insurance, and it repeals Medicaid expansion.

Republican leaders could include this in a budget resolution soon, believing they can ram this bill without the public finding out. But if we stand up right now and make our voices heard loud and clear, we can again defeat this catastrophic health care plan:

I am asking you to sign my urgent petition right now opposing the latest Republican attack on our health care. Tens of millions of Americans are counting on us to defeat this plan. Making your voice heard right now will go a long way in helping us win this fight.

There is so much more we should be doing to guarantee health care as a right for every single person in this country, including Medicare for All.

But we cannot afford to sit on the sidelines while this Administration and conservatives in Congress attempt to sabotage the Affordable Care Act and take health insurance away from millions of people.

That’s why it’s so important you take action on this petition opposing the latest GOP attack on our health care. Click here to add your name.

Thanks for all you do,

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California

Big Poll News and Most Memorable Ad

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

Delaine Eastin for Governor 2018

Yesterday we got some exciting news. A new poll shows Delaine as the second leading democrat in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This news couldn’t have come at a better time, as we just released our first major Ad: Cut Out the Middle Men

Politico said:  “Delaine’s Done It, Launched One of the Most Memorable Ads of the 2018 gubernatorial campaign”

Middleman.jpg

The LA Times: Democratic gubernatorial candidate Delaine Eastin released a television ad on Tuesday that features clips of most of her rivals in the race agreeing with her during a series of debates.

Doug Sovern, political reporter KCBS: Very clever new ad from @DelaineEastin shows all the men in the race for governor agreeing with her on a range of issues.

John Meyers from the LA Times: Clever video from @DelaineEastin‘s campaign for governor, showing everyone agreeing with her at recent debates.

We are running Cut Out the MIddle Men across social media and on select TV stations. But we need to do more. Will you donate $29.20, $292.00 or even $2920.00 to help us air this spot in more media markets?

Right now voters are starting to pay attention to this race. We need them to know that there’s one candidate in the race that even her opponents believe has the right ideas to lead California, and that’s Delaine.

Their war on voting rights

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

Democratic Association of Secretaries of State

I’m asking for a donation to the Democratic Association of Secretaries of State so that we can fight to protect voting rights ahead of the midterm election. And I want you to know why your donation right now is so important.

Republicans are doing everything they can to roll back voting rights and gerrymander districts to save themselves from losing races.

Just take a look at their war on voting rights has looked like this year:

  • At least eight state legislatures have advanced 16 bills to that make it harder to vote.
  • The New Hampshire legislature passed a law targeting student voting.
  • The Georgia Senate passed a pair of bills restricting voting hours and early voting options.
  • In Wisconsin, Scott Walker refused to hold elections until forced by a federal judge.
  • And Kris Kobach, former head of Trump’s sham voting commission, implemented a faulty “crosscheck” system that more states are using to purge millions of eligible voters from their rolls.

Democratic Secretaries of State are on the front lines to protect voting rights, and it’s crucial that we help Democrats win in November. Unlike Republicans, we don’t have a shady network of billionaire donors to finance our efforts –– we rely on grassroots donors like you.

We are planning critical investments in key states to help Democrats win, and the donations we receive from supporters like you over the next few days will determine how far our strategic campaign plan can go.

We’re still short of our campaign goal of $7,402, and we need this money in the door before the end of the week. Will you donate $5 or more and help fight back against voter suppression and propel Democrats to victory?

If you’ve saved your payment info with ActBlue Express, your donation will process immediately:

Express Donate: $5

Express Donate: $15

Express Donate: $25

Express Donate: $50

Thanks for standing with us to help protect voting rights and elect Democrats.

Alex Padilla
California Secretary of State
Chair, Democratic Association of Secretaries of State

“Animals”

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

On November 9th, 2016, many of us woke up feeling like strangers in a foreign land; abandoned by Donald Trump’s dark vision for the future of America – one that included some, and excluded many.

By a margin in the millions, Californians overwhelmingly rejected politics fueled by resentment, bigotry, and misogyny and embraced a resistance fueled by diversity and inclusivity.

Last night San Diego joined the majority of Californians in supporting SB54, which protects immigrant families and keeps our communities safe.

Yesterday, Trump brought a gaggle of Republican, anti-immigrant politicians from California to the White House, to plot against the policies that keep all of our residents safe.

The entire meeting was disappointing, but when President Trump called immigrants “animals,” it became offensive.

We can’t stand for it, and we don’t have to. Chip in $10 to my campaign and I’ll make sure Trump hears of our California values every remaining day of his ill-conceived presidency.

Our hardworking immigrant families aren’t “animals”, Mr. President.

The families you’re tearing apart are people, just like you. No matter how hard you try, you can’t strip away their humanity.

Mr. President, you’re lying through your teeth because you’re terrified Republicans will lose control of Congress. I have news for you: California — the largest state in the union and the strongest driver of our nation’s economy — will make sure they do.

We will not allow this one electoral aberration to reverse decades of California’s progress. Not at the height of our historic diversity, economic output, and sense of global responsibility.

I’m running for U.S. Senate to build an economy that works for everyone, expand Medicare for all, and give all students a chance to achieve their dreams so future generations can thrive. This vision for the future of California isn’t just mine, it’s ours.

Chip in $10 right now to help us achieve our visions together:
