Good news for Debbie Stabenow and Tammy Baldwin
Patricia, Two of our Senate women are up for re-election in states Trump narrowly won last year. But his disapproval ratings are rising. Trump Disapproval in Michigan: January: 40% September: 55% That's good news for our candidate: Sen. Debbie Stabenow Trump Disapproval in Wisconsin: January: 41% September: 53% That's good news for our candidate: Sen. Tammy Baldwin [Morning Consult, 10/10/17] Trump's bad numbers could drag down Republicans running against our women, but they aren't a guarantee.

Patricia, Republican state lawmakers are locked in a race to the bottom to see who can pass the most horrifying anti-choice legislation. In Virginia, they introduced an abortion ban -- with no exceptions for rape or incest. That is unacceptable, so we endorsed 16 women running there. In Washington State, every single state Senate Republican has an egregious anti-choice voting record. That is bad news, so we endorsed five women running there. We put both of these chambers "On Notice" for their anti-choice attacks. Now we need to support all of these women -- because their Election Day is in just a couple of weeks. Donate to help our women in Virginia and Washington State as well as other pro-choice champions across the country replace anti-choice Republicans in state legislatures: Republicans' unprecedented wave of anti-choice attacks on abortion care and birth control isn't slowing down. In the Ohio Senate, they want to force women to choose cremation or burial after an abortion -- or face criminal charges. The Colorado Senate GOP wants to force physicians to lie to their patients about so-called "abortion reversal." This horrible and unending onslaught on choice is why we're not just targeting individual state lawmakers anymore: We're targeting entire state houses and state senates to flip from red to blue. Donate to help elect the next generation of pro-choice champions at the state level and boot anti-choice Republicans from office: Thank you, Emily Cain Executive Director, EMILY's List

[SPAM] This is pretty low:
Patricia, I've seen some pretty nasty campaign tactics over the years, but Republicans are sinking to new lows right now. In Florida, Republicans were so eager to discredit our own Rep. Stephanie Murphy that they launched a nasty digital ad campaign attacking her in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Irma. In Virginia, Republican extremist Del. Bob Marshall -- who has made a career of attacking LGBTQ Virginians, including championing a "bathroom bill" -- has repeatedly misgendered our candidate, Danica Roem (a transgender woman), and refuses to even debate her. We won't let our candidates face these attacks alone. Donate $3 to help our women fight back against these Republican attacks: Republicans are going as low as they can to undermine our candidates and even elections themselves. In Nevada, Republicans are coordinating baseless recall efforts against two of our women so that they can steal the majority in the Nevada Senate. Republicans couldn't win during a regular election, so now they're trying to rig the system. And in Wisconsin, Republicans have already spent $650,000 on radio ads to attack Senator Tammy Baldwin. It's part of a $2 million donation that a GOP mega-donor has given to a Wisconsin-focused super PAC. One thing is certain about Republicans: They'll do anything to achieve a victory -- even if it means making things up and buying elections to do it. Our women need help to counter these attacks. Donate $3 to help elect all of our pro-choice Democratic women and fight back against the GOP's well-funded attacks: Thanks, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List

2 terrible Republican senators + the women who can defeat them >>
Patricia, Senators Dean Heller (NV) and Jeff Flake (AZ) shouldn't get too comfortable. Why not? Because they're vulnerable. Because they've taken awful votes that hurt women and families. Because we're coming for their seats with two women -- Jacky Rosen and Kyrsten Sinema -- who are so, SO much better. Donate $3 to help Jacky and Kyrsten kick these Republicans out of seats they don't deserve to occupy: We put these men "On Notice" because their constituents deserve better, and we have two pro-choice Democratic women strong enough to defeat them. Jacky is a fearless champion the people of Nevada can rely on, while Heller pledged to protect Planned Parenthood before breaking his word less than 24 hours later. Kyrsten has fought hard in the House to create opportunities for the working families of her district, while Flake voted THREE times in a single month to strip millions of Americans of their health care. These are our two best opportunities to flip Senate seats next year. Donate $3 to send Heller and Flake packing and replace them with pro-choice champions: Thanks, Jenna Kruse Vice President of Research, EMILY's List

Federal judge blocks Trump
Friends, Yesterday, a federal court found the third iteration of the White House's "travel ban" to be just as unconstitutional as the first two. While this halt is welcome, we cannot take it to mean that Trump will abandon his bigoted campaign promise to ban entry into the United States for some foreign nationals or those of Muslim faith. It is time for the White House to hear directly from you. Click here to tell White House officials to end travel bans. CALL 844-877-5203 » Discriminating against people due to their nationality or religion is against our nation's values. What's more, the White House's fixation on what is really a Muslim ban, one that they cannot prove will have any demonstrable effect on national security, has prevented us from addressing the serious issues that we face as a nation. The people of Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, Chad, Venezuela, and North Korea have endured harsh conditions under repressive regimes. Keeping refugees from reaching a safe haven makes our country culpable in their suffering. If we are to realize true equality for all human beings, we need to stop the paranoia and stereotypes that vilify innocent people for their faith, the color of their skin, or the language they speak. Call the White House and tell them to abandon the travel ban. We are not going to tolerate religious tests as a qualification to enter the land of the free. CALL 844-877-5203 » Contrary to what Trump believes, this decision is not about the ego of one judge or the motivations of one party. Stopping this is simply about doing what is right.

A tactic that hasn't been used since 1787
Patricia, Republicans are toying with a tactic that hasn't been used in more than 200 years: They want to call a constitutional convention. And if they control two more state legislatures, they could do it without a single Democratic vote. The last time this happened was 1787, when the founding fathers actually wrote the Constitution. Only by electing more Democrats to state legislatures can we stop this from happening. Donate $3 to help elect pro-choice Democratic women who can flip state legislatures and stop Republicans from rewriting the Constitution: What Republicans are planning isn't just speculation. They're actually practicing. Republicans have already held mock constitutional conventions in Virginia and Arizona. They're ready, and they know what's at stake. But so do we. We've endorsed 37 women running for state legislative seats all across the country. And there are dozens more to come, particularly in the 10 states where we're ​targeting Republican majorities.

My choice
Friend, In the last week, Republicans passed an abortion ban and allowed private employers to deny contraceptives in their employee health insurance plans. It's more of the same from a group that obsessively passes laws to regulate women's bodies and women's health. Their oppressive and hypocritical agenda has nothing to do with health care or business and everything to do with exercising power over women. This is about women and our ability to make decisions about our life and our body. Add your support to the EACH Woman Act (H.R. 771) to guarantee abortion access in all government and private health insurance plans. I faced vicious attacks and threats to my safety because of my decision to have an abortion as a teenager, and even more outrage over the fact that I had the audacity to speak openly about that choice in a legislative hearing. My choice to have an abortion was right for me then, and it's right for me now. I would not be in the position I am today were it not for having access to this critical health care service. Each woman should be free to make the choice that is best for her. Period. Instead of restricting access to health care, Congress should focus on policies that improve women's lives such as closing the gender wage gap, raising the minimum wage, making education and childcare accessible and affordable, and guaranteeing Medicare for All. Let's stop the attack on women. Add your name to support the EACH Woman Act (H.R. 771) today. It is past time for women to be able to fully exercise our right to make our own health care decisions. Thank you for taking action with Our Revolution today. In Solidarity, Lucy Flores Board Member Our Revolution

[Stickers] We're putting in an order. Get yours now!
Patricia, When we were designing our new sticker, we wanted something that would perfectly capture what EMILY's List is all about -- and how we define success. We landed on these two simple words that mean so much: elect. women. We're putting in our first order of stickers soon, so time is running out to get yours. Donate and we'll send you an "Elect Women" sticker so you can show your EMILY's List pride: Electing women is our goal next month, next year, and beyond. We're supporting dozens of pro-choice Democratic women running for state legislative seats in Virginia, Washington State, and New Jersey, along with several special elections around the country this year. Next year, nine of our Senate women are up for re-election, and we want to add two more to their ranks. We've also endorsed seven women running for governor and 12 women running for the House from coast to coast. Electing women is what we do, it's who we are, and now, you can say it loud and proud. Donate, and we'll put one in the mail for you: Thanks, Kelly Biggs Membership Services Manager, EMILY's List

Communication is Key
Friend, Communication is key--the best ideas in the world don't mean a thing if you can't figure out a pithy way to get them across. That's why the Sanders Institute is so important: it's working in the tradition of the best explainer in contemporary American politics, a man who's able to get across the essence of what needs to happen in language that sticks. Consider "Medicare for all," which is the perfect way of taking the word salad that surrounds health care policy and putting it in terms all of us viscerally get (including those, like me, who've been intimidated by the insurance industry's endless efforts to "complexify" the problem behind an endless screen of words." Or think about "Fight for $15." Everyone who hears it immediately imagines what it would be like trying to live on less than that: it brings the idea of "living wage" into sharp focus. For those of us working on the environment, "100 Percent Renewable" is the new watchword. It sums up what we need to do: move off coal, oil, and gas and on to sun and wind. And it makes it clear it's urgent: we have to go all the way and we have to do it fast. No more half measures. (Here's an essay I wrote recently for In These Times that makes the case). That's why we were so happy when Bernie, and Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley, introduced a Senate bill this year demanding 100% Renewable. And it's why we should all be grateful to the Sanders Institute. It's a powerful megaphone for repeating, explaining, and underlining these profound and simple--but never simplistic--messages. I was pleased when Jane Sanders asked me to be a founding Fellow of the institute. Like all the fellows I donate my time, and since I have more on my plate than I should, it's always a little hard to know where to make such commitments. But I hope many of you will be able to donate a little money to help build the Institute's reach. Movements, ultimately, run on ideas. And the Institute is a place where ideas live. Help if you can!

③① women who need us in NJ, VA & WA
Patricia, We are coming down to the wire. In less than a month, New Jersey, Virginia, and Washington State will hold vital state and special elections. The outcome of those elections will have a huge impact in all three states, where we've endorsed 31 incredible women. In these final weeks before Election Day, it's more important than ever that our candidates get the support they need to run strong, winning campaigns right up to the finish line. Donate $3 to help elect pro-choice Democratic women in New Jersey, Virginia, Washington State, and all across the country: All of New Jersey's state legislative seats are up for election in November, and we've endorsed eight women across both chambers, plus lieutenant governor candidate Sheila Oliver. The seats in Virginia's House of Delegates are also up for a vote, and we've backed 16 women who want to make gains in the state House and help flip it from red to blue. And in Washington State's upcoming special election, we've endorsed six women ready to serve. While the Trump administration continues to do everything in its power to roll back progress, we need pro-choice Democratic women in state legislatures where they can fight back and protect our rights. I know this firsthand -- I served 10 years in the Maine Legislature and worked to fight back against countless Republican attacks on women, children, working families, and the environment.

[Constitutional Convention] The GOP is already PRACTICING
Patricia, Practice makes perfect. That's why Republicans have been holding mock constitutional conventions. They want to make sure they know exactly how changing our Constitution behind closed doors​ would work. Last year, they held one in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. There was another planning meeting in Phoenix, AZ, recently. Every day, Republicans are gathering more support for a convention that could put all of the rights the Constitution protects on the line. We can't let them get that far. Republicans need 34 state legislatures to agree to call a constitutional convention, and right now they hold 32. But not for long. Donate $3 to help elect more EMILY's List women to state legislatures across the country and prevent the GOP from holding a constitutional convention: For many, this reality might seem like a remote possibility. But the truth is, if we don't mobilize now for all of the state house and state senate races this year, next year, and beyond, an opportunity for Republicans to convene and amend the Constitution as we know it could be a lot closer than it seems. They're already practicing!

⑤ great reasons to be hopeful, Patricia
Patricia, Elections don't just happen every four years. They happen all the time, and EMILY's List women always rise to the occasion. Since November, more than 18,000 women have reached out to us about running for office. And this year, we've already endorsed 78 women running for office. We're really proud of those numbers. You know what else we're proud of? Our victories. We've already helped five EMILY's List women win their special elections. And we're ready to see this number grow even bigger! Donate $3 to help elect pro-choice Democratic women to every level of government: Last month, we saw Annette Taddeo flip a Florida Senate seat from red to blue. And in February, just after Donald Trump's inauguration, Stephanie Hansen inspired hope when she won her special election for the Delaware Senate, maintaining its Democratic majority. And we have even more wins already under our belt, including Cindy Friedman (MA-SD Fourth Middlesex District), Jennifer McClellan (VA-SD09), and Christine Pellegrino (NY-HD09). But we're not done yet! We have even more women running in elections in Virginia and Washington State next month that need our help, too. Donate $3 to bolster their campaigns and help elect even more pro-choice Democratic women like Annette, Stephanie, Cindy, Jennifer, and Christine: Thank you, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List
