We’re taking the fight to Valadao. (new ad)

While I worked to help build health clinics across the Centr

TJ Cox for Congress


There’s a pretty clear contrast between my opponent and I that voters in our district need to hear about.

While I worked to help build health clinics across the Central Valley, David Valadao voted with Donald Trump 99% of the time — including a vote he took to strip away health care insurance from thousands of hard-working families in this district.

We’re staying on offense — so we’re up with a new TV ad in the Central Valley to make sure voters know that a vote for Valadao is a vote for Washington’s failed agenda on health care. Can you watch our new ad, then chip in a donation to help us keep this on the air so we can send TJ Cox to Congress?

Thanks for keeping us in this fight,

Women’s Equality

 

 

Today is Women’s Equality Day, and 2018 is shaping up to be the most consequential year ever. Hundreds of glass ceiling-breaking women across the country are running for office – and I’m proud to be among them! 

But as we are poised to make progress towards reaching gender parity in the November election, we cannot lose sight of the challenges facing us TODAY. 

The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court presents a chilling possibility that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, and women will lose the right to control our reproductive and health choices. We must act now.

Today I joined NARAL Pro-Choice California, California National Organization for Women (NOW), the Courage Campaign, and thousands of others to rally against the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. 

Together, women – and the allies who fight with us – are a powerful, unstoppable, positive force for change. On Election Day, let’s elect committed female leaders with political courage to be our advocates in California, Washington D.C., and across the country. 

If elected the first female Lt. Governor in California history, I will work hard to advance the status of women and girls across the state.

But first, I need to get to Sacramento, and I need your help. 

Please make a donation of $50, $100, $250, or $500 today to help us win this in November and break the glass ceiling.

Thank you!

NEWS: Updates to the presidential nominating process

These reforms will grow our party, increase participation in our democracy, work to earn trust, and put our next nominee for president in the strongest position possible to win.

Democrats/Join us.

Today, the DNC held its quarterly meeting in Chicago, where we reaffirmed one of our core beliefs as Democrats: That our democracy works best when every person’s voice is heard.

We passed the strongest reforms to our party in decades, and I wanted to share some of the highlights with you:

  • Our North Star from the beginning of this process has been to grow our party, unite our party, and earn the trust of committed Democrats like you. That’s why we’ve taken the historic step of dramatically reducing the influence that superdelegates have over our presidential nominating process. Now superdelegates will refrain from voting on the first presidential nominating ballot, unless a candidate has already passed the threshold to secure the nomination. This change empowers the grassroots and respects the will of voters.

 

  • To make the presidential nominating process more inclusive, transparent, and accessible to participants of all backgrounds, the DNC voted to expand the use of primaries so that more people could participate in the process. Primaries are more accessible for many voters, including seniors, shift-workers, students, members of the military, parents of young children, and people with disabilities. And we know our democracy works best when more people can participate, not fewer.

 

  • For states with caucuses, our reforms recommend that those states take steps to make their caucuses as accessible as possible, including offering absentee voting for voters who can’t make the caucus in person and implementing better processes for tracking ballots in case a recount is needed.

 

  • Democrats are doing all we can to make sure that every eligible voter can exercise their constitutional right at the ballot box. That’s why we’re encouraging all states to offer same-day voter registration and the ability to register as a Democrat to vote in Democratic primaries.

I say this a lot, but I’ll say it again because it’s true: The new DNC is doing things differently.

These changes are all about the future. They’re about growing our party, increasing participation in our democracy, and putting Democrats in the best possible position to win in November and beyond. I’m proud of the steps we’ve taken this year to rebuild our infrastructure from the ground up. We’ve made unprecedented investments in technology, state parties, grassroots organizers, and voter protection efforts. We’re building the infrastructure Democrats will need to succeed in 2018, take back our democracy from Donald Trump in 2020, and win elections up and down the ballot for years to come. You should be proud too, Michael. Because we’re building this party together.

Thanks for standing with Democrats,

Tom

A victory for our most vulnerable immigrant children

 

The Trump administration is doing everything in its power to make it harder for immigrants to stay in the United States — but last week, we helped secure an important victory that will make it easier for the most vulnerable immigrant children to obtain permanent residency.

 

We participated in a lawsuit to defend immigrant children who have been abandoned, abused or neglected by a parent. And now, a federal court has ruled in our favor, declaring that these children should be able to apply for visas without the participation of their absent parent.

 

 

As the son of immigrants who grew up hearing about my father being turned away from restaurants because of signs that read, “No dogs or Mexicans allowed,” I will never stop fighting for our immigrant communities in every way I can.

 

That means demanding that the federal government reunite families separated at the border and put an end to its cruel zero tolerance policy.

 

It means securing the first-in-the-nation court order requiring the Trump administration to keep processing DACA renewals and allow Dreamers to remain in this country while they continue pursuing their education and careers.

 

And it means standing up for these most vulnerable immigrant children too.

 

 

Thank you,
