Re: Weekly LCV Victory Fund Update
We are one week out from Election Day and almost 70 million voters have already cast their ballots.
Between the completely illegitimate, rushed confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and SCOTUS’ undemocratic ruling on Wisconsin mail-in ballots with, as Vox said, ‘a potentially seismic reinterpretation of American election law,’ by Trump justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, the stakes of this election could not possibly be higher. Our democracy is on the line and our rights to breathe clean air, drink clean water, and live in safe and healthy communities are at extreme risk. We’re giving it everything we’ve got in the last week.
