Two quick Things....

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

Just two quick things before our meeting tomorrow night....

First,I am sending you the League of Women Voters Voter Guide (Voters Edge) to download on your phone so that you can follow it at our meeting.
https://votersedge.org/ca

Second, PLEASE BRING GOODIES! Since this is our last meeting before the election, please consider bringing something that you would like to share with the group! Sweets, savory, fruit or whatever sounds good to you. (Just no shellfish, meat or nuts please.)

Thanks, and see you tomorrow night!

Lita

Meeting Next Week!



Our next meeting is much sooner than you think...in fact, it's next week! We will be reviewing our ballots with a representative from the League of Women Voters as well taking input from each other. Be sure to bring your sample ballots. We will also be talking about the races, our volunteering and just generally schmoozing at our last meeting before the election!

We have completed our donations to our local Congressional Candidates Mike Levin, Katie Porter and Harley Rouda. We handed their representatives checks for $1,000 each, completing their $5,000 donation (each) and "maxing out" to them this campaign cycle. We are extremely proud to have donated to these candidates. HOWEVER, OUR WORK IS NOT DONE.



Our Political Research Committee has met and there are A DOZEN OTHER RACES in California and across the country where we would like to give -- and where we can make a difference! Having watched the extremely upsetting Kavanaugh hearings, it is imperative, now more than ever, that we not only win the House of Representatives, but that we win the Senate as well.

PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK AND MAKE A DONATION TO DEMOCPAC NOW!!! YOUR MONEY IS NEEDED AND WILL BE PUT TO GOOD USE. PLEASE HELP US TO SEND MONEY TO HOUSE AND SENATE CANDIDATES IN TIGHT RACES BECAUSE WE KNOW WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!
https://www.efundraisingconnections.com/c/DEMOCPAC/

Please send any amount, whatever you can, the more the better. There is little time left. And then, after November 6, the asks will stop. And hopefully, we will have Democrats running the House and the Senate and we all can breathe a little better.

Thank you for all the help you have given already and for responding to these last requests.

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends



What is in the news but issues about Brett Kavanaugh and what is to happen with this nomination? Seeing Anita Hill on the news brings back the awful days of the Clarence Thomas hearings and how terribly Anita Hill was treated and no matter how far we have come, the Republican party seems not to have moved at all. They turn a blind eye to the issues surrounding this nomination, which had problems from the start and seem to care little for what is happening now. As Michelle Goldberg wrote in the NY Times, "If the Kavanaugh nomination goes forward, it's because Trump and his allies believe that a certain class of men accused of sexual assault deserve impunity." Rush, rush, rush...push, push, push.

Obama's choice, Judge Merrick Garland, was shoved aside because it was too close to an election. This time an appointment must be rushed through before the election. How does this man deserve a lifetime appointment with so little thought? At minimum, Dr. Ford deserve an FBI investigation and a fair process. At this point, that seems unlikely.

We are getting so close to the November election...it seems impossible but we are down to two meetings before the election!

Please bring your campaign stories with you to our next meeting next week. In addition to hearing from Kevin de Leon, we would like to hear from you. What's happening out there? What our your experiences? Where have you been and what are you seeing and hearing? Let's spend a few minutes talking about what's happening!

PLEASE JOIN US NEXT WEDNESDAY...

You don't want to miss this!



Because today is 9/11, I can't write without paying my respects to the many lives lost and the many brave people who were affected by this tragedy. Their lives and that day will forever be ingrained in our memories.

We are excited to welcome Kevin de Leon, the Democratic leader in the California State Senate, as our guest in September but before we do, there are a few things I want to clarify. We have raised our prices for this event because it is a fundraising event FOR THE PAC. Senator de Leon is not receiving an honorarium nor is he receiving a donation for his appearance. (Nor has he asked for one.) We have invited Senator Feinstein to speak to the PAC as well, and she is taking our invitation seriously but, because of the U.S. Senate calendar, she has scheduling issues. She has not said no. Finally, this is a fundraising event that will help us give more money to Democratic House and Senate candidates so that we can help TURN THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE BLUE!

With that said,

PLEASE JOIN US FOR A SPECIAL EVENING...

AND THEN THERE WAS


PRESIDENT OBAMA'S VISIT...

Several DemOC PAC members and friends were lucky enough to attend and volunteer at this special event with President Obama this past Saturday. Below are a few of the pictures they shared. There are more on our Facebook page, along with the live feed. It's hard to believe that the President kicked off his Congressional campaigning in Orange County...we hope he will return!



His message? Get a clipboard! Let's get out and volunteer for our candidates! We all need to do that in order to win in under two months! The weather is cooling off...let's hit the streets or hit the phones or hit the headquarters!

ARTICLE
I know this is off-topic, but I was moved by what happened on the tennis court on Saturday and, after reading this article, wanted to share it with EVERYONE. So, indulge me, and, if you feel so inclined, share your thoughts with me (you can respond to this email).
