Dear Friend, 
It’s the August district work period and I’m currently meeting with community leaders, local groups, and constituents about their priorities and how we can help. I’m also sharing the important work I’m doing in Washington – we had a tremendous first 200-plus days. Here are some highlights for the week of August 12: 

Fighting to keep Americans safe


Days drag on and Senate Majority Leader McConnell still has not acted to pass meaningful gun safety legislation. Last week, I joined more than 200 of my colleagues on the House Gun Task Force in sending a letter to the Senate Majority Leader requesting that he immediately call back the Senate to vote on two gun bills we passed in the House back in February; H.R. 8, The Bipartisan Background Checks Act and H.R. 1112, The Enhanced Background Checks Act. Yesterday, House Gun Task Force Leadership reached out to McConnell to request a meeting on consideration of this important legislation. Last night, in Philadelphia, 6 police officers were shot in the line of duty. We cannot let this go on any longer. Enough is enough.

Want to make sure you don’t miss this news — Orange County is blue.

I want to make sure you didn’t miss the big news from last week: Orange County is now officially blue, with 89 more registered Democrats than Republicans.

This is huge. As Orange County Democrats’ Chair Ada Briceño says, “If it can happen in Orange County, it can happen anywhere.”

To that I say: Yes it can, and yes it will! With support from Democrats like you, we’re heading into 2020 stronger than ever — and we’re ready to turn GOP-held seats up and down the state blue.

But first, we have to hit our mid-month fundraising goal, tonight at midnight. Can you chip in $20.20 or more, right now, to help power our work ahead?
