Now more than ever, we need bold progressive leaders to stand up to Koch brother-backed Tea Party obstructionists as they spend millions of dollars to combat progressive causes to spread gridlock and animosity.
I will work with President Obama to advance his agenda for civil rights; on increasing a minimum wage so it represents a living wage; on supporting gun safety measure and on fighting for strong education funding. For our future - we need policies that lift us up for the better, whether that's ensuring a sustainable energy plan, secure access for women's healthcare, and protecting Social Security and Medicare.
We need principled Democrats leaders in Congress to accomplish that.
I truly believe that today must be better than yesterday, and tomorrow must better than today.
I humbly ask for and hope I can earn your support.
