The following is Senator Elizabeth Warren's latest e-mail to her supporters. As with all of her past e-mails, I agree with every word she has written. She writes:
I haven’t been in the Senate for long, but I’ve learned: If you don’t fight, you can’t win. And I’ll be honest, when things get tough, too often our side just folds and gives up.
But not Hillary Clinton. For 25 years, she’s been on the receiving end of attack after attack. She didn’t whimper. She didn’t whine. She’s always fought back with grace and determination – and no matter how many punches she took, each time she came out fighting stronger.
Hillary is a fighter. Throughout this campaign, she has said she’ll hold Wall Street accountable, raise the minimum wage, protect and expand Social Security, and help students graduate from college without being buried in debt. She’ll fight for women’s rights and LGBT rights and immigrant rights and civil rights. That’s Hillary’s agenda, and it is a progressive agenda.
We need a candidate who fights for the right values -- and who isn’t afraid to fight back against right-wing lunatics trying to undermine progress in our country. Because let’s be honest, the Republicans have nominated the looniest of the right-wing lunatics to become our country’s next Commander-in-Chief.
Donald Trump is a man who built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia. A man who got rich while declaring bankruptcy, skipping out on what he owed to others, and scamming people. A man who is a small, insecure, moneygrubbing bully who doesn’t care who gets hurt, so long as he makes a buck off it. A man who should never, ever be allowed to set foot in the White House.
So here’s the deal: Hillary is smart as a whip, and she’s a tough cookie. She can take Donald Trump’s attacks and nasty name-calling. But if she’s going to win in November – if we are going to win in November – then she cannot do it alone.
It’s going to take all of us fighting hard to make sure Donald Trump gets NOWHERE near the White House. Hillary will fight her heart out to level the playing field for working families. That’s why I’m with her -- and that’s why we all need to be with her.
Thanks for being a part of this,
