We just set a new goal

We just set a new goal

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 

 

Last week I sent a note letting you know why I am running. Now, I’m writing to ask for your help. Our finance director just set a lofty goal for this month, $20,000. That’s more than we have raised before, but reaching our goal this month is critical if we are going to win the primary.  

Can you contribute $25 today to help us reach our goal of $20,000? 

The constituents in this district have been left out of our electoral system for too long. With a political system that values money over votes, it’s no surprise that the low and middle-income families in the district have been ignored.  

That’s why this campaign will spend the next five months talking directly to voters about the issues that matter and doing all we can to inspire thousands of new and young voters to get to the polls on Election Day.  

Can you contribute $25 today to support our efforts to bring bold, new leadership to California’s 16th district? 

Thank you for your support, 

-Kim

We just set a new goal

A New Deal for California’s 16th Congressional District

The Fresno County Democratic Central Committee has not endorsed any candidate in this race.

 

 

Since launching our campaign, we have knocked on thousands of doors and registered hundreds of new voters. We’ve earned national endorsements, and we’ve grown our team. Slowly and surely, we are finding that our message is resonating with voters in The Valley.  

The answer to why I am running is simple – people deserve a representative who cares about them. For years, this district has remained one of the poorest regions in the country with poverty levels reaching upwards of 30 percent.  

Right now, we are the only campaign running on a progressive economic platform that will bring quality healthcare, good-paying jobs, and economic opportunity to California’s 16th district. 

Your contribution of $25 today will go a long way in spreading our message of economic prosperity and help to get out the vote in March. 

As the next representative, I will do all I can to fight for economic justice, change the devastating effects of climate change, and provide a pathway out of poverty for all Americans. That means introducing fresh ideas such as Medicare for All, debt-free college, and universal Pre-K, just to name a few. 

Our campaign knows the road ahead will not be easy, but the work of ensuring our democracy works for all of us is hard. We will continue to visit neighborhoods no other candidate has stepped foot in and talk to voters that have been ignored for far too long.  

We cannot do this alone. It is going to take each of us doing our small part to fuel our grassroots campaign. 

Can you contribute $25 today to help us keep our momentum going? 

 

Thank you for your support,

We win this election by being willing to come together, to say we’re the party of lifting every single person up. We win not by just telling voters we’re against Trump — but by showing people how muc

Friend,

We get one shot and only one shot to make sure Donald Trump is a one-term president.

That’s why I woke up this morning with a feeling that, for voters tuning in for the first time to see what Democrats have to offer, a lot of last night was a missed opportunity for our party.

Too much time was spent attacking one another or repeating Republican talking points about our well-intentioned policy differences. We even had a question that echoed Trump’s baseless conspiracy theory designed to take down Joe Biden and distract from Trump’s own betrayal of his oath.

We need to focus on the issues that matter — issues that got far too little attention last night. The existential threat of climate change, a women’s right to reproductive health, and LGBTQ+ equality, which the Supreme Court is debating right now. The humanitarian crisis at our border, and the crippling problem of college affordability. How we’ll stop rampant voter suppression efforts going on in states across the country, and how we’ll reform our disastrously broken criminal justice system. On how we ensure affordable health care for all Americans and creating an economy that works for all, not just the ones at the top.

Today, Congressman Jim Costa’s momentum in the campaign for the 16th Congressional District reached a new high as his campaign reported a campaign war chest of over $575,000, with over $269,000 raised in the most recent period alone. These fundraising numbers, combined with the early support of the region and state’s most influential leaders and organizations, firmly place Congressman Costa in the position of front-runner in the race for CD 16. 

Congressman Costa said: “My most recent campaign finance filing will show that we have amassed over half-a-million dollars in the bank, representing the broad and diverse coalition of support I have earned throughout our Valley. As my campaign continues to press forward, I will continue to represent our Valley’s issues with the respect, passion and integrity they deserve, deploying our resources to ensure everyone has a voice in our political system.”

Hi there,

On the debate stage just now, Pete talked about how one way or another, this presidency is going to come to an end. He asked us to picture what that’s going to be like — what it’s actually going to feel like in this country the first day the sun comes up.

Think about it. Donald Trump is out of office. It starts out feeling like a happy thought, right? This particular brand of chaos and corruption will be over.

But we’ll be even more torn apart by politics than we are right now. And that’s why this primary is so important. Is the person who replaces this president going to be someone who further divides us or someone who brings us together to meet our urgent challenges?

That’s why we need Mayor Pete to be President Buttigieg on that day. He’ll be a president who can turn the page and bring a polarized country together so we can tackle the issues that are going to be even more urgent than they are now.

If you believe that Pete is the candidate with ideas bold enough to meet the challenges we face and big enough to bring people together to get them done, please make a donation tonight before Pete leaves the stage.

Thank you,

Pete for America

Esmeralda Soria’s Campaign Continues to Surge With Campaign Finance Report Showing Deep Grassroots Strength  

 

An early preview of Soria’s first campaign finance report shows a formidable grassroots campaign with Soria raising $150,000 from individual donors with NO corporate PAC money

 

FRESNO, C.A. – Today, the Soria for Congress 2020 campaign released an early preview of the campaign’s fundraising totals covering July 1, 2019, to September 30th, 2019.

 

The finance report, Soria’s first since announcing her candidacy, underscored the strength of her grassroots network and widespread support in the 16th Congressional District. Soria raised $150,000 from individual donors, all while adhering to her pledge to reject contributions from corporate PACs.  

 

Councilmember Soria’s fundraising stands in stark contrast to her opponent Congressman Jim Costa. Despite serving 8 terms in Congress, Soria raised significantly more from individual contributors than Costa did in either of his first two quarters of fundraising this year.  During the 1st quarter, Costa raised $49,600 from individuals and $110,750 in his 2nd quarter. Instead, Costa has relied heavily on money from corporate PACs and committees.
