Need your help for the General Election!
Though it's hard to believe since it seems like our work is just getting started, I'll be on a ballot again in less than five months! Now is not the time for us to be complacent. This is my first re-election campaign, and we can take nothing for granted. The fact of the matter is that I am facing an opponent who is working hard to unseat us. He won his Primary election 2 to 1! A businessman, veteran and a native of my hometown of Selma, he is actively trying to cut into my share of the vote. As the lone Democrat in Alabama's congressional delegation, the stakes are high. I'm not taking this election lightly, and I need your help!
We are four days away from the end of this fundraising quarter, and we are $26,362 away from reaching our goal. This quarter is crucial. Our opponent will be looking at this quarter's financial report to determine the course he'll take in this race. Will you please help us with a $100, $50 or $25 contribution today?

The strength of our campaign has always been in the diversity of our support. I am honored to serve the people of Alabama, and I know it is only possible because of the generous support of so many people. I'm so proud of what our office has accomplished in eighteen short months. From helping to rebuild Alabama communities after the devastating April 27th tornadoes to assisting in the procurement of millions in federal grants, I believe that we are fulfilling our mission-- restoring hope and creating opportunity for the people of the 7th District!
With your help, we can count on a victory on November 6th. Thanks for your continued support!
All the best,
