Dear MoveOn member,

Let's cut to the chase: If we defeat Donald Trump on November 3 but Mitch
McConnell and the Republicans maintain control of the Senate, our ability
to pass progressive legislation will vanish.

No legislation to tackle the climate emergency. No federal policing or gun
reform. No Supreme Court confirmations. Nothing.

That's why ending GOP control of the Senate is just as important as
electing Joe Biden this fall and why today MoveOn is announcing our plan
to do it. And with strong candidates, we've increased the map of what's
possible—if we take action and get to work.

The first step? MoveOn members have endorsed six top-tier red-to-blue
Senate challengers who will form the main team we will support and the
states where we will organize to flip control of the Senate. Here they

* Steve Bullock, who is taking on Senator Steve Daines in Montana.
* Cal Cunningham, who is taking on Senator Thom Tillis in North
* Theresa Greenfield, who is taking on Senator Joni Ernst in Iowa.
* Sara Gideon, who is taking on Senator Susan Collins in Maine.
* John Hickenlooper, who is taking on Senator Cory Gardner in Colorado.
* Mark Kelly, who is taking on Senator Martha McSally in Arizona.

MoveOn is endorsing them, along with Senate champion Cory Booker. We've
already announced our endorsement of Jaime Harrison, a dynamic candidate
who is putting Lindsey Graham on his heels in South Carolina. This
announcement allows us to go big to mobilize MoveOn members, volunteers,
and voters in these states to elect these Democrats. If just three of our
seven endorsed challengers win, we will end GOP control of the Senate this

Here's the catch: While Arizona, Colorado, and North Carolina are also
top-tier presidential battleground states, Montana, South Carolina, and
Maine are not, which means we have to spin up and sustain full campaigning
programs in these states in order to compete in the Senate races—without
taking away any of the resources we need to defeat Trump.

campaign to take back the Senate in November?

Our plan to go big to support these candidates—and so many others—includes
all this:

* Running an innovative friend-to-friend voter mobilization program
called "Vote Tripling." Recent studies have shown that one of the most
effective ways to turn out voters is if their friends and family
encourage them to vote. That's why we are asking hundreds of thousands
of MoveOn members to take Vote Tripling pledges: pledges to reach out
to three friends, help them make a plan to vote, and ensure they vote
in the fall.
* Flexing our analytical muscles to identify and inspire "high-potential
voters." Our research shows that there are millions of voters across
these critical states who are progressive but often stay home on
Election Day: young voters, new citizens, voters of color, low-income
voters, and others who are often ignored by campaigns. Our crack
analytics team is building algorithms to identify these voters so we
can target them with authentic, inspiring content to encourage them to
vote. If only a fraction of them cast a ballot, it will make all the
* Fighting back against GOP voter suppression and online disinformation.
Just like 2016, white supremacists, far-right extremists, and foreign
actors are going all-in to spread disinformation online to suppress
voter turnout. But unlike 2016, we're ready to fight back. MoveOn has
hired a team of researchers and digital sleuths who are tracking
disinformation networks, exposing them, and demanding that social
media companies like Facebook take them down so they can't do any more
* And because the stakes are so great, MoveOn is also re-launching our
Super PAC to allow us to compete with the GOP efforts that are
flooding battleground states and districts right now on behalf of
Trump. Using our Super PAC again, as we have in recent general
elections, will let us fund needed ads, reach millions of voters
through our tested and trusted Vote Tripling program, and more.

None of this will be possible without your support. Can you chip
in $5 a month to help fuel these programs and  defeat Trump
AND take back the Senate on November 3?

Defeating Trump and ending GOP control of the Senate are our top
priorities, but MoveOn is also dedicated to ensuring that Democrats
maintain control of the House and that more inspiring progressive leaders
are elected this fall.

That's why we are also announcing that MoveOn members have endorsed a
slate of incredible candidates for the House of Representatives running in
competitive districts: Dana Balter (NY-24), Kara Eastman (NE-2), Christina
Hale (IN-5), Sri Preston Kulkarni (TX-22), Betsy Dirksen Londrigan
(IL-13), Candace Valenzuela (TX-24), and Cameron Webb (VA-5). They join
MoveOn's other endorsed House candidates and, if elected, will lead the
House to pass powerful progressive legislation on climate, the economy,
racial justice, reproductive rights, and more.

It's a lot of work to support candidates for president, Senate, and the
House, all across the U.S. This election will be the most important many
of us face in our lifetimes, which is why MoveOn's election campaign is
the biggest and boldest in our 22-year history.

But while so many of our tactics to win are new and innovative, one thing
has stayed the same: The way we fund these programs is through tens of
thousands of small donations from members like you. We never take a cent
from corporations or special interests, because our allegiance is now and
always will be to our members.

Can you join this fight by chipping in $5 a month?
