Winning The House w/Janelle Bynum (OR-5), GOP Taking Enormous Risk w/Trump, Pods for The Weekend

Hopium Annual Subscriptions 10% Off In June!

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

Winning The House With Janelle Bynum (OR-5) - Yesterday I sat down with our wonderful candidate in Oregon-5, Janelle Bynum. Engineer, entrepreneur, Mom of 4, State Senator and just a great candidate - as you will see when you watch our discussion, above. Because she had a late, competitive primary for the seat, she is much further behind in fundraising than our other 11 candidate so please consider making a contribution to her directly or give to our entire slate of 12 today. As you will hear in our talk, Janelle runs people-powered campaigns and wants and needs volunteers from anywhere in the country. You can sign up to be a volunteer here, and learn more about her here.

Friends, since we began this campaign to Win The House three weeks ago we have raised over $300,000 for our 12 candidates. It’s amazing, impressive, huge! Thank you all. Together, we are making a real difference in this election, and for our country.

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

You guys have really stepped up this month - thank you all!

Why I Am Optimistic We Will Win - As I wrote yesterday there is evidence now the election may be turning bluer - 5 credible national polls in the past week showed movement of 2-4 points for Biden. We also had another strong Dem overperformance in a House special election this, and the European right dramatically underperformed public polls, as our right has been doing for several years now. All in all an encouraging week for us.

For a deeper dive on the 2024 election and why I would much rather be us than them check out:

On CNN this morning I talked about the historic risk the Republican Party is taking in rallying around Trump, who is:

  • A rapist, fraudster, traitor and felon

  • Deeply diminished, and far more delusional and crazier than he was in 2020

  • Far more extreme and dangerous, and a clear threat to 1) our democracy and the rights and freedoms we hold dear 2) the global economic order which has made us prosperous and 3) the Western alliance which has kept us free

  • The leader of a failed political movement, MAGA, which just keeps losing elections of all kinds across the country (link)

Watch this new clip from CNBC this morning of influential financial journalist Andrew Sorkin talking about Trump’s visit to the a group of influential American CEOs yesterday:

“CEOs who said that he was remarkably meandering, could not keep a straight thought, was all over the map….CEOs who walked in as soft Trump supporters walked out startled by him”

Try at they might there is no way to put lipstick on the Trumpian pig.
