Governor McAuliffe has started a “Democratic Victory Fund” to go against Trump and other Republicans this year and in 2020. This comes after much speculation that McAuliffe will run for the Democrat nomination for President in 2020. (Perhaps Tim Kaine will get to run for Vice President again.)
Governor McAuliffe’s memo:
The elections in Virginia this November are critical to our future. We’ve seen what President Trump and Republicans in Washington are trying to do to our nation, and this is our chance to fight back.
Just last week we got the abysmal Congressional Budget Office score for the American Health Care Act, aka Trumpcare, which would doom millions of Americans. When Trumpcare is combined with Trump’s proposed budget, it’s crystal clear Virginians are at high risk from his reckless, extremist agenda.
So, will you stand with Gov. McAuliffe and Virginia Democrats and help fight back? We’re launching our Democratic Victory Fund to make sure our candidates have what they need to take on Trump’s radical schemes and win in November.
We must get the message out to every corner of the Commonwealth that Trump’s distorted values are not Virginia values. And we must hold Republicans accountable for these disastrous policies and do everything we can to make sure Democrats up and down the ballot are ready to win in November.
Will you step up right away? We’re looking to add $20,000 in online grassroots donations to our Democratic Victory Fund before our major end-of-month budget deadline at midnight tomorrow.
Thank you for standing with Gov. McAuliffe and Virginia Democrats as we get ready to fight back.
