Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin is running for Senate, and she needs our help immediately. This is an important and historic campaign: If elected, Tammy Baldwin would be the first openly gay member of the US Senate. She is a champion of women’s rights, LGBT equality, and fights for poor and middle class Americans. And, she is under attack from anti-women, anti-choice, and anti-equality forces.
That’s why we, the LPAC Advisory Board, are offering up a $50,000 match challenge to you all, our Team LPAC supporters. Why? Because this race is hugely important to all of us.
Every dollar you give to help Tammy’s historic campaign, the LPAC board will match, up to $50,000: teamlpac.com/tammy
Today Tammy’s opponents, four anti-gay, anti-choice men, are duking it out in the Republican primary to see who can be the most extreme. Tomorrow morning, Tammy will have a challenger, who will be able to spend 100% of his energy attacking her. Secret groups funded by the Koch brothers, the US Chamber of Commerce, and Karl Rove have already spent millions of dollars attacking Tammy. Because she stands up for women. Because she believes in economic justice. Because she’s a lesbian.
And she’s still standing strong. Polls are showing that she is in a dead heat against all her potential far-right opponents. Not only would Tammy’s win be a win for lesbians, for women, but for all fair, equality-minded Americans. This is must-hold seat for the pro-women Senate Democrats to keep control. In Washington, D.C., in state legislatures, and through ballot initiatives across the country, women’s rights are being taken away every day. Tammy’s voice and votes in the Senate will be instrumental in stopping this onslaught of attacks against women.
Tammy embodies everything LPAC stands for, and she needs our help to withstand the oncoming vicious daily attacks from her opponents. Click here to help Tammy Baldwin win! The LPAC Advisory Board will be matching all donations up to $50,000.
I hope you can help us reach the match goal and deliver $100k to Tammy Baldwin! This week, all contributions will go directly toward defending Tammy with strong TV ads.
Thank you all for being a part of Team LPAC!
Chair & Treasurer, LPAC
