A new message from your friends at People For the American Way. Anne, Election Day is TOMORROW and the most recent polling out of Georgia has PFAW-endorsed progressive Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel TIED in the special congressional election! In this last week of this election, Republicans and right-wing groups have thrown everything they've got into smearing Jon and keeping this seat red. The National Republican Congressional Committee has been running ads tying Syrian refugees to ISIS and essentially accusing Ossoff of supporting terrorists. Vice President Mike Pence was in Georgia fundraising for Handel. And Trump himself released a robo-call that specifically attacks Jonfor his position on immigration reform. Trump Republicans know that if we win in Georgia and flip this seat, it will signal that their entire extreme agenda is threatened -- especially their efforts to take away healthcare from tens of millions of Americans and pass massive tax cuts for the rich. A group of committed PFAW donors have agreed to MATCH every online donation up to $50,000 in this final day before the election! Those are critical additional resources that we'll lose if we fail to hit the full amount before midnight -- so if you can help today, your gift will be doubled and go extra far in helping us bring home a progressive victory. Can you donate now to help us elect Jon Ossoff and send a young progressive champion to Congress? site.pfaw.org/site/R Karen Handel is exactly the kind of person Trump wants in Congress... someone who will enthusiastically rubber stamp his extreme agenda. Like Trump, Handel has paid lip service to the LGBTQ community and then thrown them under the bus. And Handel has been at the forefront of the Right's voter suppression efforts... when she was Georgia's Secretary of State she directed a purge of Georgia's voter rolls, tried to prevent Democratic candidates from appearing on the ballot, and was a strong proponent of a burdensome voter ID law. And just after they stripped the voter rolls and enacted that law, she quit her Secretary of State position early to run for governor. (Isn't that convenient?) Karen Handel doesn't belong in Congress, and that's why we're doing everything we can to stop her and elect Jon Ossoff. PFAW volunteers have been pounding the pavement for weeks and our organizers are on the ground getting out the progressive vote. ** ALL DONATIONS BEFORE MIDNIGHT WILL BE MATCHED! ** Please make a FULLY MATCHED donation now to help defeat Trump Republican Karen Handel and turn this red seat blue>> site.pfaw.org/site/R Thank you, Katie O'Connell, Digital Communications Coordinator donate: site.pfaw.org/site/R                               Do not reply directly to this e-mail.

Anne,

Election Day is TOMORROW and the most recent polling out of Georgia has PFAW-endorsed progressive Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel TIED in the special congressional election!

In this last week of this election, Republicans and right-wing groups have thrown everything they’ve got into smearing Jon and keeping this seat red. The National Republican Congressional Committee has been running ads tying Syrian refugees to ISIS and essentially accusing Ossoff of supporting terrorists. Vice President Mike Pence was in Georgia fundraising for Handel. And Trump himself released a robo-call that specifically attacks Jonfor his position on immigration reform.

Trump Republicans know that if we win in Georgia and flip this seat, it will signal that their entire extreme agenda is threatened -- especially their efforts to take away healthcare from tens of millions of Americans and pass massive tax cuts for the rich.

A group of committed PFAW donors have agreed to MATCH every online donation up to $50,000 in this final day before the election! Those are critical additional resources that we'll lose if we fail to hit the full amount before midnight -- so if you can help today, your gift will be doubled and go extra far in helping us bring home a progressive victory.

Karen Handel is exactly the kind of person Trump wants in Congress… someone who will enthusiastically rubber stamp his extreme agenda.

Like Trump, Handel has paid lip service to the LGBTQ community and then thrown them under the bus. And Handel has been at the forefront of the Right’s voter suppression efforts… when she was Georgia’s Secretary of State she directed a purge of Georgia’s voter rolls, tried to prevent Democratic candidates from appearing on the ballot, and was a strong proponent of a burdensome voter ID law.

And just after they stripped the voter rolls and enacted that law, she quit her Secretary of State position early to run for governor. (Isn’t that convenient?)

Karen Handel doesn’t belong in Congress, and that’s why we’re doing everything we can to stop her and elect Jon Ossoff.

PFAW volunteers have been pounding the pavement for weeks and our organizers are on the ground getting out the progressive vote.

** ALL DONATIONS BEFORE MIDNIGHT WILL BE MATCHED! **

FULLY MATCHED donation now to help defeat Trump Republican Karen Handel and turn this red seat blue>>

Thank you,
