I will not stand by while Donald Trump attacks our values

As Attorney General, my job is to do everything I can to defend California’s families and values. 

 

These days, it also means protecting those values against attacks from wherever they may come, including Washington, DC.

 

I’ve sued the Trump administration more than 40 times since taking office to stop Donald Trump from harming our communities. But I’m on the ballot this fall and my Republican opponent won’t stand up for Californians against the Trump administration’s attacks.

 

 

California is the world’s fifth-largest economy and a leader when it comes to progressive policies.

 

But Donald Trump wants to roll back our progress, whether it’s our environmental protections, the way we treat immigrants, or the work we’ve done to make health care more affordable and accessible to all.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Xavier

I’m reaching out for TJ Cox

TJ Cox for Congress


I’ve been closely following TJ Cox’s congressional race in the Central Valley.

Why? Because TJ brings something new and needed. He’s not a politician, and for years he’s been a leader in his community — bringing health clinics and job development programs to his neighbors. He’s the real deal, Michael. Investments he directed brought health care access to more than 40,000 residents and created hundreds of new jobs!

Health care access is a big deal for me, and to say that TJ Cox would be a much-needed ally in today’s Congress would be an understatement.

I’m proud to support his campaign, and I hope you’ll join me by chipping in a donation before his end-of-month deadline.

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

A lot needs to change if we’re going to restore the American people’s trust in Washington, and there’s no better way to do that than by getting things done — on health care, jobs, improving our schools, and protecting our environment.

That’s why I’m so eager to support TJ’s campaign because I know he’ll work to deliver real results.

This race is very competitive, and it is exactly the kind of election that we’ve got to win if we’re going to get back on track in Congress. Join me by chipping in $10 or more before TJ’s end-of-month deadline.

Let’s make sure he has the resources he needs to win this race.

Thanks,

Rep. Joe Kennedy III

are you on the list?

Dear friend,

The past month has proven to be a record breaking month for our campaign. We’ve gained over 100 new supporters and beat our fundraising goal, but we have more work to do between now and Election Day.

 

To get us across the finish line, we’ve set a new goal for September: we’re going to double the number of supporters on our endorsement list and raise $5,000.

I know we can do it, but I need your help.

Can you chip in to help me reach our September fundraising goal?

No donation is too small, and every little bit helps.

 

Are you on my endorsement list? If not, click here to add your name to our growing list of supporters.

 

I hope to see you out on the campaign trail!

Sincerely,

Melissa Hurtado
Candidate, State Senate District 14

Report: David Valadao headed for tough reelection fight.

TJ Cox for Congress

 

Visalia Times-Delta:
“Valadao facing criticism, tough opponent in November election”

Chip in a donation to support TJ Cox >>

 


 


Things aren’t looking too hot for David Valadao’s reelection chances.

And it’s no surprise why: Over the last two years, Valadao’s constituents in CA-21 have taken notice of his repeated attacks on health care, allegiance to Trump’s agenda, and his “missed opportunities to communicate with… constituents.”

That’s why TJ Cox — who has spent years on the ground helping launch health care clinics in the Central Valley — is giving David Valadao his biggest challenge yet.

We’re on the verge of handing Trump and Valadao a humiliating defeat. We need to raise $50,000 before Friday to make sure we can oust Valadao. Can you chip in a donation to send TJ Cox to Congress?

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


Valadao and his friends in Washington are starting to panic.

Special interest groups already bought a massive TV buy in Fresno and Bakersfield against TJ Cox, and Paul Ryan’s NRCC dropped nearly $100,000 on ads to attack TJ’s progressive campaign.

We need your support. Chip in to TJ’s campaign before our deadline to make sure we can defeat Valadao and his allies in Washington >>

Thanks,

TJ Cox for Congress

My job is to protect our families and values

Bloomberg News: “41 lawsuits have put [California] at forefront of Anti-Trump movement” 

 

 

Bloomberg News reported this past week that California is leading the resistance against the Trump agenda, citing the 41 lawsuits we’ve filed to block this administration’s reckless policies.

 

I know that many of this administration’s actions can’t hold up in court. 

 

And while Donald Trump often thinks he can do whatever he want, as long as our laws and institutions are working, that’s not true. 

 

 

Donald Trump is asking us to backslide. But we refuse to go backwards.

 

My job is to protect our families and values. And if someone gets in the way of that goal, we have to take them on. That’s my job.

 

That’s why I filed a lawsuit when the Trump administration began separating children from their parents at the border. 

 

It’s why I’m leading the fight to stop this administration from rolling back President Obama’s clean car standards. 

 

And it’s why I’m stepping up to save the Affordable Care Act against a challenge from GOP states, even as the Trump administration has declined to defend the law.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Xavier

Nunes is Playing Spy While Andrew Janz Talks to Voters

 

Nunes is Playing Spy While Andrew Janz Talks to Voters

Fresno, CA (August 28, 2018) – Devin Nunes, Congressman in California’s 22nd Congressional District, and chairman of the House Intelligence Committee flew to London to gather intel on Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer who compiled the dossier alleging Trump-campaign ties with Russia. But MI5, MI6, and GCHQ were wary of entertaining Nunes out of fear that he was “trying to stir up a controversy.”

Devin Nunes took this trip in the midst of August Recess, a time when representatives should be meeting with their constituents. While Nunes was in London playing spy, Andrew Janz met with his constituents.

“I’m so disappointed but also not surprised in our Congressman. He did not have time to hold a town hall, debate me, check in or issue a statement on the thousands of California firefighters risking their lives in August, but he did have time to sneak around London and be denied meetings by British Intelligence. If he’s not going to talk to his constituents, I will. It’s an honor to meet with concerned voters and talk about the issues here on the ground,” Andrew said.

Devin Nunes time and time again has disappointed the people here in the Central Valley and across the nation. The question is, was this trip at the expense of taxpayer dollars?

Fortunately, voters have another option this November.

###

Andrew Janz is a Deputy District Attorney for Fresno County, where he was assigned to the Violent Crimes Unit before entering the race against 8- term incumbent Rep. Devin Nunes after his infamous midnight Uber trip to the White House last spring. Andrew Janz is 34 years old and resides in Fresno with his wife Heather and their two dogs.

Devin Nunes is the 8 term incumbent for California Congressional District 22 who became a national lightning rod after his midnight trip to the White House in 2017. Most recently Devin Nunes has come under national and local scrutiny for his most recent ethical missteps in spending thousands of campaign dollars on Boston Celtics tickets, wine tours, and Las Vegas getaways.

Candidates Sought in Fresno County for Home Broadband Pilot Study!

See below on how you can help!

View this email in your browser

Candidates Sought in Fresno County for
Home Broadband Study

The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) needs your help participating in the CPUC’s Home Broadband Study.

Based on its successful CalSPEED broadband testing and analysis program, the CPUC has developed a program to test and analyze the actual service quality being received by California consumers of fixed broadband services. The study, conducted in partnership with the Geographical Information Center (GIC) at California State University, Chico and California State University, Monterey Bay, will enable research on a number of issues critical to understanding the status of broadband service in the state. Such issues will include the extent to which various technologies and companies are delivering on their promised speeds, whether there are differences in the quality of fixed service in rural versus urban areas, and the extent to which projects deployed using state and federal infrastructure grants are meeting the required service levels of those grants.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:
As a Fresno County resident, sign up to volunteer to participate in the CPUC’s testing program. Interested volunteers can sign up by going to www.calspeed.net and completing a simple survey. We will initially choose approximately 50 volunteers but will expand that number to 500 or more in the coming months. Eligible candidates will be chosen to ensure a mix of factors, which may include provider, technology, location, and subscription service needs. Boxes will be shipped to selected volunteers with instructions for activation. Volunteers will be instructed on how and when to return the testing device so that it can be redeployed elsewhere.

Questions about the project? Email: support@calspeed.net.

08/27/2018 Strategy Update: Here’s what you need to know in CA-21.

A key milestone, a fresh election forecast, and our latest ad hitting Valadao.

TJ Cox for Congress

 

From time to time, Team TJ will send strategy updates to keep supporters up to date on our push to flip California’s 21st district. To support TJ Cox’s run to unseat David Valadao and retake the House, chip in here >>


Here’s the latest from CA-21:

Earlier this month, Team TJ went on the air with our first TV ad introducing TJ Cox to undecided voters in California’s 21st — a key milestone.
.
Then last week, Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight called CA-21 one of the 25 races that “could determine control of the U.S. House” and listed TJ’s chances of flipping this seat over 60%.
.
Now, we’re up with a new ad making sure voters in our community know about David Valadao’s destructive vote to strip health insurance from working families.

We have the momentum, and TJ’s support in the district is growing by the day, but we have a lot of ground to make up if we’re going to flip this seat. We have a crucial $50,000 target to hit before the end of the month to execute our strategy through Election Day. Please chip in a donation to keep TJ in this fight >>

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


Thank you for your support,

Team TJ

Arguments to defend the ACA begin next week

Arguments in Texas’ lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act start next week and we’re gearing up to defend the ACA in court.

 

When the Trump administration declined to defend the healthcare law against this challenge, we stepped up to save protections for people with pre-existing conditions and make sure everyone can afford the care they need.

 

 

This lawsuit is a reckless and political attempt to destroy the ACA that would strip millions of families of access to affordable care.

 

If Texas and other Republican-led states win, insurance companies could again deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions. It would mean an end to Medicaid expansion and to tax credits that make insurance affordable for working families. And it would strip away billions of dollars in healthcare funding.

 

We cannot let Republicans roll back the progress we’ve made and risk the health of millions of Americans.

 

 

Thank you,

Special Interest Spend Big to Protect Devin Nunes

Special Interest Spend Big to Protect

Devin Nunes

Fresno, CA (August 27, 2018)  A mailer was sent out on behalf of Devin Nunes that’s subsidized by “Partnership to Fight Chronic Disease,” a group that’s funded by big pharmaceutical research and manufacturing corporations. This is an effort to keep his seat against political newcomer Andrew Janz. See direct mail piece below:

In direct opposition to the pay to play nature of Washington insiders, Andrew Janz has rejected all corporate money. It’s no wonder that corporate America is desperate to keep their favorite Congressman in office.

“I don’t take a dime from big pharma, the Koch brothers, or Wall Street like my opponent. That’s why you can count on me when I promise to go to Washington and fight for the residents of the Central Valley. No wonder we haven’t seen any action on poverty, water security, or education. They aren’t the ones lining Devin’s campaign coffers,” said Andrew Janz.

Andrew Janz recently passed the 5 million dollar raised mark since announcing in April 2017 without taking a dime of corporate money.

###

Devin Nunes is the 8-term incumbent for California Congressional District 22 who became a national lightning rod after his midnight trip to the White House in 2017. Most recently Devin Nunes has come under national and local scrutiny for his most recent ethical missteps in spending thousands of campaign dollars on Boston Celtics tickets, wine tours, and Las Vegas getaways. He has not held a town hall since 2010.

Andrew Janz is running against 8-term incumbent Devin Nunes in California’s 22nd Congressional District. Andrew has hosted public meetings every single week across the 22nd district for the past 16 months. Andrew Janz is a local Fresno County prosecutor and resides in Fresno with his wife and two dogs.
