[Endorsements] 7 new VA candidates!
Patricia, Across the country, Democrats are energized to fight back and defeat President Trump's agenda at the ballot box. Our next big test is Virginia -- a state with off-year elections and where both the state Senate and state House are controlled by Republicans. Only Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe has stood between them and their anti-choice agenda. But we have a chance to change that with primaries on June 13th and the general election on November 7th. That's why I'm thrilled to let you know we just endorsed SEVEN women running for the Virginia state House. Help turn the Virginia House blue. Donate to EMILY's List to make sure we can send our seven women there this year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170524_email_VirginiaHouse Let me tell you a little bit more about each of our newly endorsed women: Hala Ayala (HD-51) knows what it's like to work your tail off for something worth fighting for, no matter how challenging. Hala is a single mother of two children and a cybersecurity specialist. She also helped organize Virginia for the Women's March on Washington -- so you know she can get things done. Jennifer Carroll Foy (HD-02) is a public defender and a local community college professor in her district. She broke barriers as one of the first women to graduate from the Virginia Military Institute, created a nonprofit for foster children, and has been a foster parent for several years. Kelly Fowler (HD-21) has made her home district her life's commitment. Kelly is a former Virginia Beach public school teacher who now leads an all-woman team of real estate agents. Inspired by the Women's March on Washington, she's ready to fight for her hometown in the Virginia House. Wendy Gooditis (HD-10) is an educator, a parent, and a community leader in her district where she's lived for over 20 years. Wendy is doing her part to fuel the resistance in Virginia by organizing an Indivisible group and women's rallies after Election Day last year. Kathleen Murphy (HD-34) is the top incumbent seat Virginia Democrats need to protect. She won her previous election by less than 200 votes. Before pursuing a career in public service, Kathleen helped found Salute Our Services, an organization to connect deployed service members to their families, and Kids Serve Too, an organization to honor children in military families. Danica Roem (HD-13) is a lifelong resident of Prince William County who spent the last nine years as a reporter for the local newspaper. Danica is openly transgender and will bring a voice that is so important to have at the state legislative decision-making table. Finally, Cheryl Turpin (HD-85) is facing a rematch with the Republican opponent who won by less than 400 votes in the previous special election for this seat. Cheryl has spent most of her career as a teacher focused on at-risk students. She is dedicated to closing the achievement gap and making sure every child is prepared for college. Each of these seven women represents the place that Virginia could be, and have the deep roots in their communities that we know candidates need to win at the local level. Donate to EMILY's List and help these seven women win their June primaries: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170524_email_VirginiaHouse Thanks, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List

[Signature needed] Stand with Planned Parenthood >>
Patricia, President Trump's 2018 budget came out last night, and it's worse than we even imagined. Trump wants to cut ALL federal funding for Planned Parenthood -- going further than any other president has to gut their funding. And when we say all funding, we mean everything from funding for cervical and breast cancer screenings to Zika prevention, HIV/AIDS testing, sexual assault prevention, STI prevention, and children's health programs. If Trump gets his way, federal funding for these Planned Parenthood programs will be GONE. We have to fight back as hard and as fast as we can. Add your name to stand with Planned Parenthood: secure.emilyslist.org/page/s/20170523_email_StandPP No president has ever tried to exclude one provider from the entire federal budget before. And what's worse, he's going after an organization that provides critical resources to communities in need. Planned Parenthood is the nation's most trusted provider of reproductive health care, and it serves 2.5 million patients nationwide. Fifty-four percent of its clinics are located in underserved areas. It's the ONLY safety-net family-planning provider in over 20 percent of American counties. What happens to the women and families in those communities when their Planned Parenthood clinic has to close because of President Trump's budget? It's clear that Trump neither knows nor cares. We have to fight back. Add your name to stand strong with Planned Parenthood today: secure.emilyslist.org/page/s/20170523_email_StandPP Thank you, Leila McDowell Vice President of Communications, EMILY's List

This is a pivotal week for health care
Friends, Donald Trump just released a budget that puts health care for our country's poorest communities on the chopping block. This plan would gut Medicaid funding by $610 billion, leaving low income children, the disabled, and seniors without health care. The effects on our public health system would be a disaster. We are in the midst of an opioid epidemic, and the Republicans' biggest priority is to give tax breaks to the pharmaceutical industry. These corporations have flooded our communities with highly addictive prescription drugs, yet haven't borne any of the responsibility for the damage they've caused. Stripping health care from people who have nowhere else to turn is a cruel sham to increase corporate profitability on the backs of the most vulnerable. Our Revolution is fighting to end this corporate profiteering. Health care is a human right, and it should never, ever be cut. Join our efforts to save Medicaid and build a Medicare for All system with a $27 donation today. DONATE 禄 secure.actblue.com/donate/or-healthcare Health care budgets aren't just about line items and arithmetic. The decisions on how we fund our health care system mean life or death to the millions of people who rely on Medicaid. Congress has ignored the calls for universal coverage, which a majority of Americans want. Instead, they're propping up insurance and pharmaceutical industries whose businesses are predicated on profit, not prevention. It is morally wrong to take away health care from people who are already at risk of falling into the cracks. The Trump administration and Republicans in Congress don't care that people might have to choose between groceries and prescriptions, or that people can't pay for a visit to the doctor. We need a health care system that works for everyone, regardless of income, age, or socioeconomic status. Can you contribute $27 to Our Revolution to push back against the GOP assault on public health? Your donation will ensure we can run an organizing campaign in multiple states as we build up a national effort around Medicare for All. DONATE 禄 secure.actblue.com/donate/or-healthcare We have to do more than stand against harmful policies. People want to hear a positive, progressive vision for the future of our country, and that's what we're doing, from supporting candidates that believe health care is a human right, to bills in state legislatures that would make it so. We've defeated the AHCA once before--with your help, I believe we can do it again. In solidarity, Shannon Jackson Executive Director Our Revolution

The latest
Last Tuesday evening, Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Bernie Sanders participated in a spirited discussion about how Republicans and Democrats can find common ground on some of America's greatest challenges. Unity, last Tuesday evening, Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Bernie Sanders participated in a spirited discussion about how Republicans and Democrats can find common ground on some of America's greatest challenges. Watch the CNN Town Hall Discussion (here). Also, in case you missed it, you can read Gov. Kasich's latest op-ed: • CNN: The Time for Bipartisanship is Now Last week, Gov. Kasich participated in a forum with Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove to discuss the future of healthcare and the promising innovations that will help America address drug addiction, Alzheimer's and autism. You can watch the event (here). While on the road for his recent book tour, Gov. Kasich spent some time talking with Yahoo's Matt Bai, reflecting on his presidential campaign and his drive to help heal America's divisions. Below is an excerpt: "A politician couldn't look for validation in crowds, Kasich told me, sounding a little like a therapist. You had to do what seemed right and feel good about it. "I'm so happy with myself!" he burst out then. "I'm so happy with this book! I'm so happy with this tour. I'm so happy with how my family is being treated, the way my friends look at me and talk to me. It's great! And there's not a single thing I would change! "I'm a happy guy," he said, "and not looking forward to another political campaign, no matter how hard that is for people to believe." The thing is, to my own surprise, I did believe him. And that's actually the best prism through which to understand what Kasich is doing. Those of us who follow politics for a long time tend to see everything as tactical, the transparent means to some carefully calculated end. When a politician who's out there writing books and giving speeches says "I don't know" to another campaign, what we hear is: "I'm not at the announcement phase of the PowerPoint yet." But there are times, you come to learn, when a politician is motivated more by self-image than self-interest. There are moments - John McCain in 2000 comes to mind - when a candidate falls almost by accident into a public role that seems, at least for a while, to have awakened in him some sense of a larger purpose…" "What happened was that Kasich's public persona finally came into line with the way he always hoped people would see him - as a kind of self-helpy, statesmanlike figure, less concerned with partisan pressure than with the judgment of some higher power. If you disagree with him now, he's as likely to bear-hug you as to jab a finger in your face. So when Kasich says he isn't plotting to unseat an old rival whose approval rating has fallen to 36 percent, when he says he has nothing more to prove and no idea what's next, I tend to take him at his word. And if I were Trump, and if I hoped to commandeer the party for another term after this one, maybe that's exactly why I'd start to worry. In politics, nothing's quite so dangerous as a guy who considers himself the instrument of a larger plan, even if he doesn't yet have one of his own." Read the full story (here). Thank you for your ongoing support! -Team Kasich P.S. In case you missed the news about our exclusive offer, we have some copies of Gov. Kasich's new book, Two Paths: America Divided or United, and we'd like to send you a copy as a thank you if you'll make a generous contribution to help us spread his message. >>Chip in $50 Now<< Receive a copy of the book >>Chip in $150 or More<< Receive a signed copy of the book Paid for by Kasich for America, not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee. www.JohnKasich.com This message was intended for: xxx You were added to the system March 3, 2016.

馃憡Stopping Trumpcare
Patricia, While Senate Republicans are having closed-door meetings to draft their version of Trumpcare, our EMILY's List women are getting ready to fight. Elizabeth Warren promised to fight "as long and hard as we can" to make health care a reality for every American. Mazie Hirono has pledged to stand strong against any Trumpcare proposal that undermines the progress of the Affordable Care Act. And Tammy Baldwin committed to oppose any bill that raises costs and covers fewer people. These women along with six other EMILY's List senators are up for re-election next year. Right now they're the best line of defense against Trumpcare -- donate $3 to help keep them in the Senate, protecting us: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170519_email_ELWomenvTrumpcare Just as they've done before, you can count on our 15 EMILY's List senators to hold the line against Republicans' extreme agenda. Our Senate women were a united front against Betsy DeVos' nomination as secretary of education and anti-choice judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court. When it comes to blocking the worst of President Trump's agenda, EMILY's List women resist and persist. But nine out of these 15 women are up for election next year.

Larry Krasner wins the Philly DA race
Friends, We just helped Larry Krasner and his team pull off a major upset in the Democratic primary for the Philadelphia District Attorney's office. It is likely that Larry will win in November, and if he does it will be huge. I grew up in Philadelphia facing the triangle of the District Attorney, Police, and Magistrate Courts pressuring young adults, often black, into guilty pleas and sentencing. This victory is transformative for the criminal justice system in Philadelphia. Please help us take advantage of the momentum Larry's victory has created and double down on our efforts in local elections. Your $27 contribution goes to helping real progressives like Larry who are committed to real change. DONATE 禄 secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/localwin We cannot understate how impactful this upset victory will be for the people of Philadelphia. Larry's goals include ending cash bail, civil asset forfeiture, and racist stop and frisk policies that target the city's minority communities. This is a DA who will never pursue the death penalty, and comes to the top prosecutor's office with the experience of representing Black Lives Matter and others in the activist community over a long career. And there are hundreds more candidates for local office who share Larry's values like we do and need our support. They're winning races for school boards, like Rita Moore and Valdez Bravo in Oregon, or for seats to their city council, like Gil Cedillo in Los Angeles -- all last night. But there's more that we can be doing. Steve Zimmer and Imelda Padilla came up short in their race for the Los Angeles school board, as the charter school industry backed their opponents and turned the race into the most expensive in the country. Please make a $27 contribution to Our Revolution so that we can continue to support exceptional progressives like these in elections across the country. DONATE 禄 secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/localwin Make no mistake: the Trumpster fire that we see every day in Washington and on the cable news networks is not representative of what is really going on in this country. Local elections like these are where the grassroots can make a difference right now. Please consider a $27 contribution today to be one of the difference makers.

Make them rue the day they voted for Trumpcare >>
Patricia, 217 Republicans in the House voted to pass Trumpcare. Every single one of those votes was a vote against affordable, comprehensive health care coverage for women and families, and that's despicable. We're planning to go after as many of those 217 seats as we can, but there are 14 in particular we've set our sights on. Why? Because they represent districts that voted for Hillary Clinton, and that makes them HIGHLY vulnerable. Donate to help elect pro-choice Democratic women to defend our health care and replace these anti-woman, anti-family Republicans: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170517_email_VulnerableGOP The most vulnerable Republicans who voted for Trumpcare: John Culberson (TX-07), Carlos Curbelo (FL-26), Jeff Denham (CA-10), Darrell Issa (CA-49), Steve Knight (CA-25), Martha McSally (AZ-02), Erik Paulsen (MN-03), Dana Rohrabacher (CA-48), Peter Roskam (IL-06), Ed Royce (CA-39), Pete Sessions (TX-32), David Valadao (CA-21), Mimi Walters (CA-45), Kevin Yoder (KS-03). Trumpcare would decimate coverage for folks with pre-existing conditions -- while vastly expanding the definition of these conditions to include C-sections, domestic violence, and even heavy periods. Taking such an extreme vote while representing a swing district opens the door to introduce voters to a better option: pro-choice Democratic women who will fight to protect their health care. We're already hard at work looking for candidates who can take on these Republicans. But we need to have the resources to have their backs when they decide to run.

Help Gwen turn the Florida governor's seat馃數
Patricia, We've got a problem in Florida. Despite being a swing state, Florida hasn't had a Democratic governor in almost 20 years. And it's hurting Florida women. One in five Florida women lives in a county without an abortion provider. Over the last few years, Republican Governor Rick Scott has attempted to defund Planned Parenthood by cutting state funding for any health care clinic that provides abortions. It's time to stop the attacks on women and families. That's why we've endorsed pro-choice champion Gwen Graham in her bid to become the next governor of Florida. We know flipping Florida won't be easy, so Gwen needs our support. Donate now to her campaign -- 100% of your donation goes directly to her: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/gwen-graham18 Gwen is no stranger to overcoming the odds. She put her name on the ballot for the first time in 2014 when gridlock in Congress opened up an opportunity to defeat an extreme Republican. That year, Gwen was one of only two Democrats in the country to flip a House seat from a sitting Republican. She was also the first woman to represent Florida's 2nd District. We were with Gwen in her 2014 race, and we're proud to be with her now. She not only shares our values, she knows how to win a tough race. Gwen's got exactly what Democrats need to turn this governor's seat blue, but Florida is a notoriously expensive state to run in. So she's counting on us to help her get off to a strong start. Donate now to support Gwen for governor of Florida. 100% of your donation will go directly to her campaign: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/gwen-graham18 Thank you, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List

13 men making decisions about women's health care馃槨
Patricia, There's no doubt about it: Trumpcare will hit women the hardest. Currently, Trumpcare defunds Planned Parenthood, slashes Medicaid, and removes protections for so-called "pre-existing conditions" like being a rape survivor and having a C-section. So who's responsible for crafting the companion bill in the Senate? Why, a group of men, of course. That's right: 13 Republican men -- including our pals Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton -- and ZERO women will have a say in repealing Obamacare. Republicans didn't even include Lisa Murkowski or Susan Collins, two Republican women who actually serve on the Senate health committee, unlike Cruz and Cotton. Let's show Republicans that shutting women out of decisions about health care -- whether it's legislation or choices in their doctor's office -- comes at a cost. Donate $3 to help defeat anti-woman Republicans and elect pro-choice Democratic women: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170515_email_WorkingGroup The GOP Senate Trumpcare working group includes Mitch McConnell, Orrin Hatch, Lamar Alexander, Mike Enzi, John Thune, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, Cory Gardner, John Barrasso, John Cornyn, Robert Portman, and Pat Toomey. Here's the cherry on top: Republican leaders are actually DEFENDING the composition of the working group rather than committing to change it. An aide to Mitch McConnell said, "So you can get caught up in process, or you can focus on the actual reality." Senator John Cornyn called the issue of an all-men group "totally bogus." Another GOP aide said, "We have no interest in playing the games of identity politics." Missing the point much? It's not about optics or process. This bill would shatter health care access, affordability, and coverage for women across the country -- low-income women and women of color in particular. That's exactly why we fight to make sure women have a seat at the decision-making table.

DRAIN THE SWAMP
Unity, AP Analysis: Defiant Trump again bucks Washington norms (AP, 05/11/17) GOOD! The norms and rules of Washington are BROKEN. They only help the incompetent, self-serving special interests who could not care less about you or the millions of hardworking Americans who truly power our country. Business as usual in Washington has given you NOTHING but stolen jobs, terrible deals that make no sense, a wide-open border, a surge in radical Islamic terrorism, lower wages, and regulations that make it impossible to do business in America. The swamp is worse than you could ever imagine. And now the media is shocked that I鈥檓 actually following through on my promise to drain it. Unity, let鈥檚 show the hypocrites, liars, and 鈥渆lites鈥 of Washington that the American people are dead serious about our mission to DRAIN THE SWAMP.

Help elect this progressive to Congress
Friends, Rob Quist and his grassroots team of supporters in Montana are working harder than ever to win Montana's special election to Congress. Coming from a rural state like I do, Rob is raising issues that resonate with people in a way that the Beltway establishment just hasn't figured out. We know that we can surprise the pundit class and push Rob over the top on May 25th, but he's going to need our support. Republican Super PACs have been flooding Montana airwaves with negative attacks. Rob is working to share his progressive message and win the special election on May 25th -- help him out by contributing $27 to his campaign for Congress today. DONATE 禄 secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/or-quist-mfa On every major issue, Rob Quist is leading the way for Montana. He is a devoted supporter of Medicare for All, Planned Parenthood, raising the minimum wage to a living wage, and equal pay for equal work. He also wants to get big money out of politics by overturning Citizens United. I intend to be campaigning with Rob next weekend all over Montana. Together, we can give Rob an enormous boost in the final stretch of his campaign and send a message to Washington that progressives across the country are doing more than just mounting challenges -- they're running to win. This is especially important in Montana, where President Trump's executive order to review the status of our national parks puts natural treasures like Glacier and Yellowstone in the crosshairs of Wall Street and the fossil fuel industry. Rob believes, like I do, that public lands should be passed down to the next generation, not sold off to the highest bidder. After the incredible turnout at the People's Climate March, it's clear that the American people are on Rob's side. Rob spent the last year campaigning with us during our campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. It's time we returned the favor. Please chip in $27 to Rob Quist's campaign to give him the boost he needs for Montana's May 25th special election and add his independent voice to the debate in Washington. DONATE 禄 secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/or-quist-mfa It's in moments like these that we need to rally to the cause and advance our progressive agenda. A victory in Montana would not just be a step forward for that beautiful state, it will be a step forward for progressive politics all across the country. That's why I'm adding my voice to this fight -- I hope you will add yours too. In solidarity, Bernie Sanders

Yeah, this? Not good
Patricia, Here's a fact: 75% of state legislators are men. When women aren't represented, the issues that affect them are at best neglected and at worst attacked. Let's shift the balance.
