A message from our new, Democratic, State Senate Majority Leader

from my email...

Scuba,

Last night was a tough night for us in Wisconsin. After being outspent 8 to 1 by Scott Walker and the billionaire Koch brothers, we lost the gubernatorial recall.

But what the national media is not telling you is: I am the new Democratic Senate Majority Leader after winning an important Senate recall election by just hundreds of votes.

Starting today, Senate Democrats will be a strong check on Scott Walker's power. If Walker tries to pass extreme policies that bust unions, hurt women, or attack middle-class families, we will have one word for him: No. We will demand laws that benefit the middle class and start repairing our state.

PCCC members have stood with us in Wisconsin every step of the way.

The donations you made to the Wisconsin Democratic Party and Wisconsin Senate Democrats directly helped get out the vote that fueled last night's Senate win.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you. Despite the disappointment in the governor's race, your efforts helped us achieve victory and restore balance in our state.

I look forward to working as partners with bold progressive activists in the days, months, and years ahead.

Solidarity,

Mark Miller, incoming Wisconsin Senate Majority Leader

A FIGHTER who won't "compromise" on fundamental Democratic values.
How can I help?
