Candidate updates

Bill Richardson is asking us to contact our governors to get state support for our veterans.

We should be ashamed. When our government sends our military men and women to war, we enter into a covenant to provide care for the injured and protection for those in harm's way. Our soldiers have been sent into a war we cannot win with insufficient equipment; and now, when they return wounded in the line of duty, our government has failed to provide the quality care our service people deserve. Our government has broken the covenant, and shamefully failed our troops.

I am tired of being ashamed of the failings of this Administration. Our veterans need help now. I will not wait for this Administration to do right thing. I will not wait for Congress to hold their hearings and assess blame. I am taking action.

And I am asking you to do the same.

Call on your state's Governor to join me in finding state funding for the care our returning soldiers deserve, but our federal government seems unwilling or unable to provide.

Hillary Clinton is asking us to help protect the vote.
I wanted to send you a quick note of thanks and one more request. The response to yesterday's call to support Hillary's Count Every Vote Act has been incredible. Thank you for supporting this vital legislation.

Now we need to keep that momentum going. Please forward this message to your friends and family and urge them to act now to make sure that we never again lose a single vote. Whether you send it to one friend, five friends, or your whole address book, this step is just as important to our success as the action you've already taken.

Building a huge base of support means Congress cannot ignore this issue. So tell your friends to sign up as a citizen co-sponsor at:
