Elizabeth Warren: "All of our victories in 2012 depend on the commitment of the EMILY's List community."
You know you're going to have a good week when it starts off with an email from Elizabeth Warren. She is trying to take the senate seat back from Tea Party darling, Scott Brown, and she knows how important EMILY's List support will be. In case you didn't get the email, you can check it out below. But don't miss out in the future. Sign up here.
Here's something I bet you didn't know: my first political contribution ever went to EMILY's List.
It was a long time ago, and I didn't have a slightest idea that I might ever run for office, but I believed then, as I do now, in the importance of electing more women to office. Today, EMILY's List has grown only stronger, thanks to the support of incredible members like you.
There's so much at stake in 2012, not just in my race in Massachusetts but all over America. We need to make our country work for middle class families again, not just for big banks and big corporations.
EMILY's List members will make the difference in key races. I guarantee it.
In this election, we have a choice to make about what kind of country we want to be. Do we want to be a country where those who have already made it get subsidies and special breaks, or are we going to be a country that says everyone is on a level playing field, and we all make investments in our future so that our kids have a chance to find a place in the middle class?
I never expected to run for office, but I can't ignore the fact that Washington doesn't get it. And I knew that if I ran, I could ask you to stand with me. You have done that, and I'm deeply grateful for your support.
I'm proud to be a part of such an impressive list of EMILY's List candidates -- both challengers and incumbents that are committed to fighting for the middle class in the U.S. Senate.
All of our victories in 2012 depend on the commitment of the EMILY's List community. It couldn't be any simpler: your support will help all of us win.
The EMILY's List community has a long record of success. I know with your help, 2012 can be our best year yet. Thank you for being a part of this and for all of the incredible support you have shown me.
