If you’re like me, the level of corruption surrounding Donald Trump makes you worried about the future of our democracy. What’s happening in our country is alarming.
But let me be absolutely clear about something: Our country and our politics aren’t going to fix themselves. It’s up to us. Nothing will change unless we act — if we don’t, who will?
Right now, here’s the best way to do that: Take back Congress in November.
With all the chaos of the Trump administration, it’s easy to get distracted, but we can’t lose sight of the big picture. We need to elect more Democrats to office, and we have a historic opportunity to do just that in just 76 days.
We need to elect a Democratic Congress, Democratic governors, Democratic state legislators, Democratic mayors, Democratic city councils, and Democratic school board members. Then we need to go elect a Democratic president in 2020.
Together we’re building an organization that can do all of those things, but none of this is inevitable. Republicans are going to fight tooth and nail to win these elections, and they’re ready to do whatever it takes — you need look no further than Michael Cohen if you don’t believe me.
Coming up short this November would be disastrous for our country, but with your help we will be prepared to take on the GOP and win.
Thank you for your support. If we don’t fight back against this president, who will?
P.S. If watching the news makes you feel angry, you can do something about it. Get out there and tell your friends and family to commit to vote at IWillVote.com.
I’m going to get straight to the point. We’re already being outspent by our opponent’s right-wing billionaires.
Marshall Tuck’s billionaire backers are the same ones who funded Betsy Devos’s education initiatives and candidates.
Marshall Tuck’s billionaire supporter like Howard Fieldstead Ahmanson, Jr. is the same one who funded the anti-LGBT Proposition 8 right here in California.
And now they have dropped $2 million dollars in commercials that are about to flood the Los Angeles airwaves.
I am proud to be the Democratic Party’s choice, public school teachers’ choice, and Senator Kamala Harris’s choice. I don’t take right wing extremist money. MY campaign is powered by the people. Now I need your help to fight back!
There is a reason my campaign has built a coalition of working class people. We are not bought by the highest bidder. We are fighting for public education that serves students, not Wall Street.

San Francisco Chronicle: Judge allows California to sue Trump administration over census question
This is big news for California’s effort to stop Trump from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census. Now we must turn up the pressure on the Trump administration to drop this reckless pursuit that would derail the integrity of the census.
We know that a citizenship question on the census would discourage immigrant communities from responding, resulting in an undercount of our population. That’s why the question has not appeared on the decennial Census for more than fifty years.
The census must be accurate, and we must count everyone. That’s why I’m standing with California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to tell the Trump administration “No!” on the citizenship question in the 2020 census.
If we have an undercount of our population, vital federal services like homeland security funding, natural disaster preparation, transportation resources, and even resources for our schools could all be drastically cut.
But adding a citizenship question to the census isn’t merely a bad idea –– it’s unconstitutional.
The United States Constitution requires a total population count. The Trump administration is trying to hijack the census for political gain, and we can’t allow them to succeed.
Andrew Janz’s Campaign Tops Online Fundraising in California Last Month
Fresno, CA (Aug. 21, 2018) – In the month of July, Andrew Janz raised more money than any other Congressional candidate or sitting member of House and Senate from his home state. Janz raised almost 1 million dollars. His strong July total puts him at 7th in the nation for online Democratic fundraising and 2nd in the nation for Congressional campaigns.
“It’s pretty obvious who’s funding my campaign and who’s funding Devin’s. This campaign proves you don’t have to take any corporate PAC money to run a strong race. You can tell by the numbers who’s ready to work for the people,” Andrew said.
Andrew’s filing shows an impressive 34,000+ contributions in the month of July. Janz continues to raise more money in the district than Nunes while also sticking to his pledge of not taking corporate PAC money.
