Picture this:

TJ Cox for Congress

Picture this:

In CA-21, we have an opportunity to elect a Member of Congress that will:

» Treat health care coverage like a right and expand access — not vote to strip it away like Valadao has.

» Protect immigrants who have deep roots in our community — not allow Trump’s deportation raids to continue.

» Finally put the people of the Central Valley ahead of Washington special interests.

We can make this a reality by electing TJ, but it depends on your support!

Can you help us make sure TJ shows strong and broad support by chipping in a donation before our FEC deadline this Saturday? We only have $3,221 left to raise to hit our goal >>

$10 >> $35 >> $50 >>
$100 >> $250 >>

Thanks for your support!

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

California Secretary of State

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?

express donate: $5 »

express donate: $10 »

express donate: $25 »

express donate: $50 »

express donate: $100 »

Or, donate another amount here.

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.

Kamala Harris
U.S. Senator, California

Your CDP Weekly Update

Weekly Update – 3/30/18

It’s been another productive week for the CDP. See below for a recap of this week’s activities.

Endorsement Votes Published

Chair Bauman and the Statewide Officers of the CDP have made greater transparency in CDP operations one of the most important principles that guide their decision making. As part of that commitment, the CDP took the unprecedented step of publishing a list of each Delegate’s vote in last month’s endorsement vote for statewide candidates.Delegate votes have long been public – but with the caveat that the only way to find out how a Delegate voted was to physically inspect the ballots at the CDP headquarters.

Needless to say, that kind of policy functionally limits access to ballots to a limited number of people (and we want to make clear that we never permit the electronic copying or recording of any ballot or other document containing a Delegate’s signature under any circumstances, which is it’s been standard practice to make ballots available for in-person inspection only).

One of the best features of the new  Voting & Convention Registration systems we introduced in San Diego is the ability to publish a detailed list of every vote cast by Delegates. Transparency is a core value of our Party and our Party Leaders. The Chair and Statewide Officers are extraordinarily proud to take this unprecedented step, and look forward to implementing even more transparency measures in the future.

March for Our Lives

Last week’s March for Our Lives was the largest youth-organized demonstration since the protests against the Vietnam War. Tens of thousands of California students turned out in protest – and they were joined by tens of thousand more Democrats from up and down California.

Thank you to everyone who marched on Saturday, and to those who attended the various events held in memory of Stephon Clark this week. Gun violence is not a simple issue, and there are many layers of the problem that need to be addressed. But we must continue to support every effort to ensure that people are safe from the threat of being killed or injured by gun violence, whether they’re students learning in a classroom or a young Black man in his grandparent’s backyard.

As Democrats, it’s vital that we stand in support of the amazing young leaders at the forefront of these transformative, galvanizing movements.

CDP Special Election Endorsement Caucuses

CDP Special Election Endorsing Caucuses are fast approaching for the Special Elections pending in California. We will also be holding a Special Endorsing Caucus for CD 21 for the June Primary.

Check out the CDP Endorsements page for more information.

RIP Judge Stephen Reinhardt

In case you missed it, Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals past away. Chair Bauman’s statement to the press is below. Our deepest sympathies are with Judge Reinhardt’s family and colleagues. 

Statement from Chair Bauman

“Judge Reinhardt was a ferocious defender of civil rights, workers, People of Color and our environment. He was more than just a judge he was the conscience of the entire judiciary. In nearly four decades of service, every decision he handed down was a showcase of his compassion, integrity and unshakable commitment to ensuring equal rights, equal justice and equal opportunity for every person in the Country.  He was truly the model jurist, and our country is much better off because of his service. He will be missed.”

Guess who’s in Valadao’s corner?

TJ Cox for Congress

Have you seen this report from the Los Angeles Times?

Fundraising committee led by Mike Pence to raise $4 million for California Republicans like David Valadao

Chip in to fight back

That’s right, Michael. Vice President Mike Pence himself is teaming up with prominent California Republican Kevin McCarthy to raise serious cash for vulnerable Republicans like David Valadao. Word is, he’s already collected over $137,000 from this newly founded fund — the most of ANY incumbent.

Here’s the reality, Michael: Pence and the national GOP are going to keep dumping cash into Valadao’s coffers. If we have any hope of flipping this seat we need to see 500 grassroots donations come in before Saturday’s FEC deadline to fight the Republicans’ cash advantage in California.

Can we count on you to chip in a donation to elect TJ Cox and FLIP the Central Valley from red to blue?

Thanks for everything.

Team TJ Cox
