Our mission is clear

In November, we must once again make Congress an effective check on the president and bring back sanity to Washington and the rest of the nation.

Throughout Connecticut and around the country, there is a truly amazing array of candidates working around the clock. They need your time, treasure, and talent. Pick one or pick ten, and make them your hobby. Your efforts will make the difference. Find specifics on where to volunteer or give through the DCCC, SwingLeft, and to help win the Senate click here. Or, join me in supporting the candidates endorsed by the New Democrat Coalition, which I chair.

Tell your friends and family why you are volunteering, get them involved and encourage them to vote.

Stand together. The Democratic Party is wonderfully diverse and covers a huge swath of the political spectrum. We have our disagreements, but the fundamental notions of justice, equality, freedom, and respect that bind us are more powerful.

Marches, protests, and activism saved the Affordable Care Act, reunited immigrant families who were torn apart at the border, and constrained President Trump's most authoritarian daydreams.

You did those things. That's the power you have. That's the difference you have made so far.

From coast to coast and at every level, we must reject the hateful authoritarianism of Donald Trump. In our democracy, nothing wins an argument like an electoral rout. That is what we need.

It's go time. We unite, fight and win, or we continue to live with the consequences of unchecked Trumpism. And for the sake of our country and our children, that is not an option.

Thanks,

Jim
