A Letter From Sen. Barbara Mikulski


They trash our president, stomp on women’s rights and gut Medicare.

It’s the Republican recipe for taking back the Senate, and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Karl Rove is putting this recipe into action with a new $1.2 million ad blitz against our Democratic candidates in five battleground states.

We must stand together, here and now, to forcefully say, “You can’t do this to our country.”

President Obama is counting on you. Women who have fought for equality only to see Republicans demean them and try to take it away are counting on you. Seniors who depend on Medicare are counting on you.

Help us meet our $1.2 million goal before the April 30 deadline. The only way to win is if you fight back now. If you give before the deadline a group of Democratic senators will match your gift dollar for dollar.

The damage a Republican House, Republican Senate and President Romney would do to our country is horrifying.

The first thing they would do is implement Paul Ryan’s budget. That means we’d have to say goodbye to health reform, basic women’s health services, Medicare as we know it, adequate funding for education and so much more.

All to pay for unnecessary tax breaks for the wealthy and Big Oil.

The Republican recipe is an abject disaster. We’ve seen it before and it has failed. We can’t let it happen again.

We don’t have a Rove or Koch on our side. Instead, we rely on grassroots supporters to win.

We need your help, right now, before the deadline. There’s too much at stake for you to remain on the sidelines. Give whatever you can and help us hold the Senate.

I am ready to win this fight. We can do it. With your help, this November, we’ll hold back the Republicans.

Thank you very much for your support.


Sen. Barbara Mikulski
