Just a week ago in Virginia, New Jersey, and all across this great nation, new and exciting Democratic candidates won important races that put us one step closer to taking our country back.
One of the reasons we succeeded last Tuesday was because Democrats embraced our diversity and our unity. We rejected the politics of division that have dominated this past year — and offered voters fresh voices and new ideas to move our country forward.
Like Danica Roem, the first openly transgender elected official in Virginia’s history, who defeated one of the state’s most anti-trans legislators.
Like Manka Dhingra, a first-time candidate who became active in politics after Trump’s win last year, and won an election that helped Democrats take control of the Washington State Senate.
Like Wilmot Collins from Helena, MT, a Liberian refugee who became the state’s first-ever Black mayor.
Right now we desperately need leaders in office who are smart, passionate and care about this country. So on this National Run for Office Day, I’m strongly encouraging you to run for office. If you have a cause or an issue that you care deeply about in your community and believe your ideas can make life better for others then run for office.
Fill out this form and our campaign will connect you with “Run for Something”, an incredible organization that recruits and supports talented, passionate people who will advocate for progressive values.
We need your voice more than ever. However you choose to do that will be great — but please consider running for office today.
Thanks for all you do.
U.S. Senator, California
