My friend, Peter

One of the toughest Congressional races in the country is right here in Oregon. My friend, Congressman Peter DeFazio, is fighting to keep his seat and to keep serving our state.

The district Peter represents runs from Oregon State University to our southern border, and from the majestic Southern coast to Bend – and it's one of the most politically divided districts in the country. Peter's plain-spoken, fiery style and commitment to good policy is a benefit to us as Oregonians. But Ted Cruz, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the NRCC, and other special interests are coming after him with a vengeance.

In fact, last quarter Republicans funneled more than $757,000 to his opponent's campaign. Can you chip in and help me help Peter stand against the GOP money machine?

Why Peter?

As Chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Peter led the charge for the Moving Forward Act, the historic transportation bill that invests $500 billion to modernize our transportation systems for the 21st Century, invest in infrastructure like rural broadband, and create thousands of good jobs. I was proud to work with Peter on the legislation, which is the most climate-centric infrastructure bill to ever pass the House. It's good for Oregon and for the country.

Also, I'm the only woman in Oregon's Congressional delegation, and I know that Peter shares our values. He's been on the front lines of the fight for reproductive freedom and he continues to receive 100% ratings from NARAL.

Above all, Peter is not afraid to speak his mind, and he never hesitates to do what is right.

This is the toughest fight of Peter's career. We all need to stand by him – and protect Oregon from outside interests. Can you chip in to show Peter your support?

Let's show Republican mega-donors that they can't silence Peter DeFazio. Please stand with me in supporting Peter.
