Democrats Use Kavanaugh Nomination in Congressional Fundraising Efforts

Posted on | July 11, 2018 | 1 Comment

Many years ago, I checked a box on a website to get email updates from the Democrats and, of course, they sell their email lists, which means that my email inbox is filled up with liberal fundraising appeals, like this one from North Carolina congressional candidate David Brown:

Hi Robert,
Donald Trump just announced that he will nominate Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. This nomination is a calculated political decision which will have a deeply negative effect on the lives of working people for decades to come if Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed.
Brett Kavanaugh’s record has made it clear he will use his position on the court to protect corporations at the expense of workers, to allow wealthy donors to buy elections and to further dismantle voting rights. The fact that Donald Trump stated repeatedly during the campaign that any nominee of his would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, I have no doubt that is exactly what Brett Kavanaugh will do.
Simply put, nothing is more important now than doing everything in our power to elect me as your Congressman to put laws into place to protect the most vulnerable before Kavanaugh and the other conservative justices strip all the protections and rights away from us while standing on the Constitution.
Donate $5, $10 or more to help elect a community-centered leader to Congress.
Together we must do everything we can to win back the House, the Senate and the presidency to stop further disastrous nominees. But right now, we work to elect true representatives of the 10th district who will work every day to build our communities up and protect the people who live in them.
Join me on a better road forward.
–David

Brown is running against GOP Rep. Patrick McHenry in North Carolina’s 10th District, in the Appalachian hills west of Charlotte. In 2016, McHenry easily won re-election with 63% of the vote, and Trump carried some counties in that district with more than 70% of the vote. It isn’t likely Brown can actually win NC-10, but you could kick a few bucks toward McHenry’s re-election campaign by clicking here.

Maybe you should also give a contribution to the National Republican Congressional Committee, which is fighting in districts all across the country to stop Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in November. During the Tea Party years of 2009-2010, this blog helped raise lots of money for conservative candidates, and with Pelosi now desperate to take back the speaker’s gavel, I guess it’s time to we went back to campaign mode.
