The Choice, Winning The House With George Whitesides (Video), "Courage. Opportunity. Democracy. Freedom."

Another good jobs report! Making June Count

Happy Friday all. Got a few things for you today:

The Choice - The images from Europe this week are of a strong President, a proud American patriot, a virtuous nation working with its allies to fight for freedom, of American heroes celebrated by a country liberated for their courage and sacrifice:

Watch this exchange between a D-Day veteran and Zelenskyy (and try not to cry):

“You’re the savior of the people, you bring tears to my eyes.”

“No no, you saved Europe.”

“My hero.”

“No, you are our hero.”

“I pray for you.”

We got another really good jobs report this morning - job gains exceeded expectations, wage gains were robust:

The Biden campaign took that Flag video we’ve been discussing here and cut it into a new 60-second ad that’s airing during the NBA Finals this week.

Courage. Opportunity. Democracy. Freedom.

Please watch, and share this ad with your networks again and again and again. This is the ad, the argument, the images all of you have been asking for:

And what images and messages have Trump and MAGA generated this week?

Last night in Arizona Trump brought America’s most virulent racist and convicted criminal Joe Arpaio on stage with him:

Another top Trump ally is heading to prison:

The gravity of having a rapist, fraudster, traitor, felon leading them is starting to weigh on voters:

This week the choice we have in 2024 has become much clearer. It’s the patriotism and love of country of

Courage. Opportunity. Democracy. Freedom

Or the betrayal and rancid appeasement of

Rapist. Fraudster. Traitor. Felon

Excited to go kick their ass with all of you this fall.

Making June Count/Supporting George Whitesides- The Hopium community is bringing it and making June count! Together we’ve raised over $425,000 for our candidates and states in the last two and a half weeks! Incredible stuff, thank you all.

Yesterday you got to meet Jane Kleeb, the dynamic Chair of the Nebraska Dems. Today please meet George Whitesides (video above), our candidate in CA-27. I interviewed George earlier this week. This is the first interview of our 12 Hose candidates who are going to win and flip the House this November. George is a smart and capable leader and is in a very strong position to flip this seat. Do watch - I think you will enjoy getting to know him.

There are two ways to help George win. You can donate to all 12 of our House candidates, and that donation is split 12 ways including for George. Or you can donate directly to George, sign up to volunteer, and learn more about George and his campaign.

Here’s a fundraising update with our progress toward our June 30th goals:

  • Biden Harris - goal of $400,000 goal, at $359,000 today - Donate Now
