Let's get right to it. With one week before Election Day, these three great members of Congress need your help right now.
Kirsten Gillibrand was one of the earliest volunteers in my first race for the Senate back in 2000 helping to organize Women for Hillary. In 2006, she unseated a Republican incumbent in upstate New York; now she faces a tough campaign in her first reelection.
Pennsylvania's Paul Kanjorski is facing a barrage of negative attacks from Republicans desperate to win his seat. He's a great friend who works hard on behalf of the people in his district; now he needs our help.
And Joe Sestak -- also from Pennsylvania -- is a retired admiral who worked in the White House during Bill's administration. Like Kirsten, he defeated a Republican in 2006, and we need to make sure he wins his race this year so he can continue to speak out for sensible national security policies on behalf of the men and women of our armed forces.
These three friends have been on the front lines fighting for us, and with Barack Obama in the White House they can help put America back on the right path.
But they're in three hotly contested races -- races we must win if we want to keep and expand our majority in the House. Make sure Kirsten, Paul, and Joe will be back in Congress next year.
Make the difference for Kirsten, Paul, and Joe -- contribute directly to their campaigns today.
After Barack Obama wins the White House, he's going to go to Congress and ask for support for his agenda -- the same agenda you and I have been working for.
Every vote he can count on in Congress will make a difference to the millions of Americans who count on us for leadership. That's why it's so important that we make sure great Democrats like Kirsten, Paul, and Joe keep their seats in Congress and keep fighting every day for the American dream.
The Republicans think they have a shot to win all three of these races, and they're dumping millions of dollars into the typical GOP playbook: negative attacks, negative attacks, and more negative attacks.
If Kirsten, Paul, and Joe have the resources they need to fight back in the final seven days, I know they'll win. It's up to you to make sure they do.
It's up to you -- make sure Kirsten, Paul, and Joe can stand up to the Republican attack machine. Contribute now to their campaigns.
After all our hard work, we've almost reached our goal. With Barack Obama and Joe Biden in the White House and bigger Democratic majorities in Congress, we're going to achieve things that didn't seem possible just a few years ago.
I'm so proud to have had the opportunity to work with you, and I know that your friendship and support will continue to make a difference for me and for America in the years to come.
Thank you so much,
