I tried to make clear to the audience of delegates that we should consider two huge impacts of this election. First, the results could improve the quality of our children's lives by improving their educational environments, creating an economy with access to livable-wage jobs, and helping to preserve their freedoms.
Second, the challenger in this election is a right-wing extremist who has repeatedly expressed her support for Donald Trump; who has been described as one of the eight most conservative members of the Colorado legislature; and whose deference to big-money lobbyists (e.g. Americans for Prosperity) has threatened to stack the deck against middle-class workers.
If the issues in the first message resonate with you, and if the items in the second message worry you, then I hope you will lend your support to this campaign, either by
sending a contribution
or by signing up to volunteer, or both.
