By Jueseppi B.
As the third of five sisters, I had to learn pretty quickly to find my voice and my strength, especially if I was going to get the mashed potatoes at our dinner table.
The other thing my parents and grandparents taught my sisters and me at a very young age was that no matter our disagreements, we had to find a way to come together to make this world a better place. Our leaders in Washington once followed those same principles by working together to find common ground and work for the common good. That was then.
But now, Kentucky, and our nation, has Senator Mitch McConnell, the self-proclaimed Guardian of Gridlock, who has spent 30 years as the leader of obstruction and partisanship in Washington. As I’ve said, if doctors told Senator McConnell he had a kidney stone, he wouldn’t pass that either!
Just like my sisters and I learned to come together to achieve our goals, I’m counting on your help to ensure we have the resources to build a winning infrastructure.
In his quest for power in our nation’s capital, Senator McConnell has literally gone Washington. He has let the state of Kentucky and its people fall behind by voting for tax breaks and trade deals that send good American jobs overseas and voting against legislation that would protect our seniors’ health benefits and give women more economic stability.
Recent polls show that our campaign is pulling ahead. We can win this race, but Senator McConnell and his Super PAC allies have already spent the better half of a million dollars in false attacks on my record. Will you join our grassroots campaign and help make sure we’re ready to fight back?
Thank you for all you do.
