Looking forward to Robert Armenta

Dear DemOC PAC Members and Friends,

I spent yesterday afternoon watching Nicole Wallace on MSNBC and she and her guests are as stunned as I am by what is happening with Trump and his racist rants, his despicable North Carolina rally and the fact that only FOUR Republicans voted to condemn the racist demagogue who is our current president. Ever more critical that he is voted out in 2020. If you haven't, be sure to watch Deadline White House from Thursday, July 18. It's worth it.

Now, more than ever, I look forward to gathering with my friends next Tuesday. It will be so good to see you! We will talk together about taking back the White House and the Senate and keeping the House in 2020. We have important issues to discuss when we are joined by...

Robert Armenta
Vice President of Public Affairs
Planned Parenthood
Orange and San Bernardino Counties

Robert will discuss the "Stop the Bans" actions and help us learn what is at stake and what we can do here in California about this most critical issue.

As you know, 10 state legislatures have enacted bans on abortion care in the first five months of 2019. With womens' rights to make decisions about their own bodies at stake, we need to stand together and learn what we can do to help those in states where this is happening.
Obviously, these bans are at the top of the Republican agenda and it is critical that we learn and take action NOW.

I hope you enjoyed the debates and had a great Fourth. Yesterday, we had one departure from the Democratic field and one entry...Eric Swalwell has returned to Congress just as Tom Steyer has thrown his hat into the ring. Things certainly aren't boring! I am on a listening tour about which presidential candidates people favor and my favorites are the same as most of the people I speak to. But we live in a rarefied atmosphere here on the left coast...it will be interesting to see where this all ends up...as long as it is with a Democrat in the White House! And, we must take the Senate as well. Speaking of the Senate, former fighter pilot Amy McGrath entered the race this week to take on Mitch McConnell!

We are very excited to about our upcoming meeting and hope you will join us to hear about this crucial topic as we welcome...
