I'm not holding my breath on this one

I won't sugar-coat things: it's been a pretty tough week. Trump's Muslim ban was affirmed. Workers' rights to organize were rolled back. Fake pregnancy centers now have stronger protections than real ones. And, just yesterday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement.

This could have devastating consequences:

This means Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is going to follow his own precedent, right?

I'm not holding my breath.

Across the nation and here in Connecticut, Americans are disgusted with the state of our nation. They're deeply disturbed by Republican overreach and extremist policies from a president who lost the popular vote and, allegedly, conspired with Russia to influence the 2016 election.

The only way forward? Taking back Congress. Rebuilding our state and country from the ground up with progressive policies. Health care for all Americans. Common sense gun-safety measures. Protections for clean air and water. Ensuring a woman has a right to make her own health care decisions.

Donate right now to my campaign before our major end-of-quarter deadline. Your support can make all the difference in this fight for the people of Connecticut and America.
