How we're holding Trump accountable. VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL MARK HERRING.

One Commonwealth PAC
David,
It’s been about nine months since I was sworn in for my second term as Virginia Attorney General, and I’ve been busy standing up for our shared values against a president whose agenda amounts to indulging special interests at the expense of hardworking Americans and undermining our democratic ideals at every turn.
I’m proud to stand with Attorneys General across the country to defend the rule of law and the rights of Americans being targeted by the Trump administration’s cruel policy agenda – from protecting women’s reproductive rights, to defending Americans with pre-existing conditions and fighting senseless gun violence.
Here’s a quick update on how we’ve held the Trump administration accountable:
Successfully challenged Trump’s unconstitutional, discriminatory “Muslim ban”


Continued the fight for affordable health care


Blocked Trump’s dangerous plan to make 3D-printed guns more widely available


Fought to protect vital women’s health care funding


Defended critical environmental protections from the Trump administration’s polluting agenda


I’m ready to keep up the  fight – but if we want to stop this administration’s dangerous agenda, we need to elect Democrats up and down the ballot. 

September Country Over Party Newsletter. CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE KEN HARBAUGH.


It’s official: We’re less than 50 days away from the election and Team Harbaugh is trying to make the most out of every single day between now and November.
Every day we’re meeting with voters, knocking on doors, and getting the word out. Whether it’s a community event for hundreds or a backyard conversation with a handful of people, Ken’s making his way through every county in the Ohio 7th.
Fighting For Working Families
Every single Ohioan who does an honest day’s work should be able to support a family and get ahead. That’s a concept that should be remembered every single day of the year -- not just on Labor Day.
Team Harbaugh, Sherrod Brown, Rich Cordray, and Steve Dettelbach
Ken’s proud to be on the ballot with fellow candidates Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, Rich Cordray, and Steve Dettelbach who understand that and have worked tirelessly to represent working families.
ICYMI: Ken Challenged Bob Gibbs
After months of avoiding any and all calls for a public debate before the general election, Ken caught up with Congressman Bob Gibbs and asked him in person if he would agree to a single debate before November.
He can’t be too busy -- Gibbs always seems to have time to meet with his corporate donors and lobbyists.
If you haven’t already, make sure to watch the clip below (and share it with a friend or two!)

The Real Strength Of Our Movement
Team Harbaugh wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for the tireless support of our volunteers and the thousands of Ohioans who have stopped by our field offices and dropped by for an event.
If you’re looking to meet up with Ken in the coming weeks, then don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

Most days, you can find him connecting directly with voters and listening to the issues that matter to all of us. Interested in attending or hosting a Koffee with Ken? Give us a call at (440) 345-6563 or see when Ken will be making a stop near you.

Less than 50 days. JENNIFER BOYSKO, RUN EVERYWHERE.

David,

With now less than 50 days left until the election, we’re rallying and registering voters and raising funds to support Democrats here in Virginia.

As you already know, this in an incredibly important election. Women’s rights, the environment, healthcare, and workers rights are all on the line. With the political divide between parties widening, we need to fill seats with Democrats now more than ever.

There are big fights ahead and they will be costly. We need all of the support you can spare.

There is also a special election on November 6th to fill a House of Delegates seat left vacant by Greg Habeeb. We can flip this district long held by Republicans, but we need contributions and votes.

You can help us to GOTV by registering voters at least 22 days before the general election and 13 days before a special election. Please share this email with family and friends so that they too can contribute to our movement and GOTV.

Thank you for your ongoing support,

Jennifer Boysko
Finance Chair, Virginia Democratic House Caucus
Chair of Run Everywhere

“What are you about? Give me the brief intro.” CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE KEN HARBAUGH.

Earlier this week, a gal who saw our commercial on TV and liked what she saw, wanted to know more about where I stood on the issues.
Many of you may be wondering the same.
And while I don’t want to take up your whole day -- here’s a crash course on why I’m running for Congress and what I’ll fight for in Washington.
-----
We must do whatever it takes to guarantee every American has access to affordable healthcare. Taking your child or parent to the doctor is far too expensive for far too many Ohioans. But while our seniors ration their medicine and wonder which bill they’ll ignore this month, Washington politicians are accepting millions from Big Pharma.
It’s time to clamp down on corruption and the partisan fighting that has damaged our healthcare system.
-----
That also means we must take better care of our veterans. We owe a debt to all those who fought for our country and they deserve quality health care -- and that must include mental health services and shorter wait times at the VA.
But besides our physical well-being I’m fighting for your financial well-being.
-----
There’s no reason someone working full-time, even two jobs, shouldn’t be able to afford a roof over their head. We need to bring good-paying jobs to the Ohio 7th with benefits and pensions that will stand the test of time.
That means kicking out politicians who answer only to Wall Street and never to Main Street.

Visit the online nominations system.
There will be member vacancies on seventeen APA committees, as well as vacancies for associate chair positions on seven committees. There will be one vacancy for member-at-large of the board of officers, and four member vacancies on the graduate student council (GSC). Most committee terms are three years in length; GSC terms are for two years.
To see the full list of vacancies, and for more information, sign in to the nominations system using your APA member credentials.
Please note that both nominators and nominees must be current APA members. Please be sure to renew your membership. Self-nominations are welcome, and members may nominate or be nominated as many times as they wish.
We will only accept nominations through the online nominations system. Do not submit nominations via email, phone, or postal mail. The deadline to submit nominations is October 31, 2018.
Service on the board of officers, an APA committee, or the graduate student council is a significant opportunity for leadership in the profession and the association, and I encourage you to take the time to nominate qualified candidates for these important positions.
All the best,
Amy E. Ferrer
