Meet Republican Carly Fiorina of California: She’s anti-choice, anti-gay and she’s mocked climate change concerns as just being “worried about the weather.” And like so many other Republican candidates this year, she’s a multimillionaire corporate executive trying to buy her way into public office.
Now meet California’s Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer: She’s a progressive leader who’s spent her career fighting for everyday Americans against corporations, Wall Street lobbyists… and multimillionaire corporate executives like Carly Fiorina.
Senator Boxer stands up and leads in a U.S. Senate that needs progressive women.
Carly will stand up for corporations instead of people and she’ll do anything to win. That’s exactly why Carly Fiorina is writing million dollar checks to her own campaign. She wrote herself $2.5 million in January and then $1.1 million more in May. That’s a lot of money — and it makes Carly a formidable candidate who’s able to go negative and scare California voters.
But it’s also the backing of just one person… the world’s smallest fan club. So today, we’re going to help Barbara Boxer send California a message: 100,000 Americans stand strong with Barbara Boxer, while her opponent stands alone.
Senator Boxer is a strong woman with a record of leading progressive victories in the U.S. Senate and she can win again on Election Day. But she’s facing her toughest opponent yet in a year that the pundits claim will be a tough election for Democrats. So here’s the thing, if some Democrats lose this November, it’s never been more important for us to make sure progressive leaders like Barbara Boxer win.
We’re proving people matter more than money, so it doesn’t matter how much you contribute today. What matters is the message of support showing that everyday Americans contributing small amounts can beat back the power of multimillion dollar corporations and their lackeys who run for Congress.
Carly Fiorina’s support amounts to herself and her checkbook. Barbara Boxer has the support of over 100,000 Americans.
Thank you for everything you do to make sure progressives win in 2010.
