Here is a message from Hillary
Democratic women in the United States Senate share a special bond. We crack that glass ceiling a little more every time one of us is sworn in, and we work hard to support each other and to make sure our number keeps growing.
So I hope you'll join me in supporting three wonderful women running for the U.S. Senate this year. Kay Hagan in North Carolina, Mary Landrieu, running for reelection to the Senate from Louisiana, and Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire are all running very strong campaigns. Their elections will take us a big step closer to a filibuster-proof Senate.
We need these three women in the Senate to help me fight for the issues you and I care about like health care and strengthening our economy.

I know these women; and I know that can make a real difference for all Americans. We are also going to work really hard on many of these issues that matter to so many women. Together, we'll lead in the Senate on the issues that women face daily -- unequal pay, affordable health care for their families, and reproductive rights.
Let me tell you a little more about the races. In North Carolina, Kay Hagan is running a great race and some polls even show her ahead. Kay will invest in helping families stay in their homes, reducing foreclosures, and finding innovative new ways to stabilize neighborhoods. She will seek public-private partnerships to renovate neighborhoods and turn foreclosed properties into affordable rental or ownership units.
Mary Landrieu has been working her heart out for the people of Louisiana, still focused on Katrina recovery three years later while her opponents are doing everything they can to knock her out of her Senate seat. Senator Landrieu is spearheading efforts to rewrite federal disaster laws, which are unsuited to deal with larger disasters like Hurricane Katrina and largely ignore communities that host disaster evacuees.
And Jeanne Shaheen is criss-crossing the battleground state of New Hampshire, working hard in a race that is one of our top pick-up opportunities. Jeanne and I both have a long record of advocating for expanding children's healthcare. While Governor, Jeanne launched the New Hampshire's Children's Health Insurance Program, which has provided affordable health insurance to tens of thousands of New Hampshire children.
Together, along with Barack Obama and Joe Biden, we're going to set a bold new course for this nation. That's why I'm personally committed to helping these candidates win in November. And I hope you'll join me in giving them your full support.
Help these amazing women win in November -- contribute to Kay, Mary, and Jeanne today!
If we keep working, we'll keep winning.
Thank you for everything,
