The oldest trick in the GOP playbook

Over-the-top outrage is GOP politics 101. While we work on important issues, my opponent and Donald Trump's closest allies manufacture crises to stir up their political base.

Know where this is going? I bet you do. I'm asking you to take just a moment right now and chip in to my progressive campaign for Congress.

Ginned up outrage is the oldest trick in the GOP playbook, and their hateful rhetoric is no joke.

We see it in school board meetings with critical race theory, where people shout down common sense and demonize educators for simply doing their jobs.

We see it in the bigoted laws passing in places like Texas, where extremists essentially want to make it a crime to be the parent of a transgender child.

And we saw it in the lies and deadly results when Trump and his loyalists tried to overthrow our presidential election.

Want to know just one of the reasons why I'm running again? Because I've had enough.

We have so many pressing issues... and this is the agenda coming from the other side? Hate, lies, and spun-up outrage that often targets traditionally-marginalized communities? America deserves so much better.

Please chip in right now. Let's win big in 2022 and elect leaders who are ready to stand up to attacks and falsehoods.
