“While I don't get to vote on Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation, I will not allow myself to feel powerless,” she wrote to donors, asking them to help her “build a Georgia where everyone is respected and treated with dignity.”
Down the ballot, candidates angled for some pre-deadline help. Amico’s husband Andrea sent an email to prospective supporters of her Democratic campaign for lieutenant governor with a picture of the smiling family and a request to help his wife “make a strong showing going into October!”
And Handel, who faces Democrat Lucy McBath in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, warned Republicans that missing her campaign’s fundraising goal would put the GOP majority in the U.S. House and the nation’s progress “in immense danger.”
“Nancy Pelosi has already said that she’s willing to do anything to take back the Speaker’s gavel,” her fundraising plea read of the polarizing House Democratic leader.
“We need you to help us meet our fundraising deadline tonight, or we will hand Pelosi momentum at the worst possible time.”
Don't expect the rhetoric to cool off. The next major fundraising deadline falls on Oct. 25 – less than two weeks before the election.
