The latest poll today shows Ron Johnson and I are neck and neck in this race. Social Security, abortion access, marriage equality – everything is on the line. We need the resources to compete and flip this seat. Every $ counts. Help us get it done: secure.actblue.com/donate/ma…

Glad Social Security is trending...because if @RonJohnsonWI had his way, it would have disappeared.

This is Wisconsin so we tailgate even before political rallies. A group of Moms for Mandela with @TheOtherMandela and his parents before a @mkedems rally this morning! #wisen

It’s the first day of fall… which also means 46 DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY. And this November, we’re making big change in this country by changing who we send to DC.

Here is Ron Johnson saying ripping abortion access away might get "a little messy" but isn't a threat to people's health...@RonJohnsonWI, do you care about the lives and freedoms of the MILLIONS of women you're endangering? Are you going to answer for all the pain you've caused?

Facts about Ron Johnson!... *He cosponsored EIGHT federal abortion bans.... *He backed bans without exceptions for rape/incest *He supports judges that favor restricting access to contraception If he's re-elected he'll continue stripping reproductive freedoms. He's got to go.

Every single county and community in Wisconsin matters. Too many of us have been left behind for too long – I’m going to the Senate to change that.

Extreme Republicans like Ron Johnson and Marco Rubio have proposed cutting Social Security and Medicare. Remember this in November.

Ron Johnson can threaten marriage equality all he wants — but we will NOT let him win. A vote to send Ron packing is a vote to protect families and futures.

The outside spending in this race is obscene. And every day, lies are spread to hold onto this seat. But when we come together, we win, and it’s true that every $ counts. Thanks for your support @brianschatz @chrismurphyCT 🙏🏾

I’m in! Who else? My sense of that if we win Wisconsin we have a shot at 52-53 Dems.

This race is competitive, but Mandela is getting outspent. There’s not a lot of independent expenditure money on his side, so this is not a race with media saturation where who knows what difference another $25 would even make. A good use of your money if you can swing it.

This is not a drill. Republicans are now outspending Democrats in Wisconsin thanks to Mitch McConnell. @TheOtherMandela needs our support now.
NEW: Wisconsin Democrats are alarmed at the GOP spending advantage in the state’s Senate race – Johnson has outspent Barnes by about $1.6M over the last two weeks. huffpost.com/entry/wisconsin…

Nerrissa, I could not agree with you more: we will fight for reproductive rights until we win – and we will NOT let Ron Johnson drag us back in time.
