Chuck Schumer: ‘Donate To Mary Landrieu Because She Defended Obamacare’

Today, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), the third ranking Democrat in the Senate, sent out a campaign email asking voters to donate to help re-elect Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in the Dec. 6th run-off election.

And one of the key accomplishments of Landrieu’s that Schumer points out is her vote for the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, which is wildly unpopular in the state.

Here’s the full campaign email:

Friend,

This is our last chance to narrow Republicans’ majority so we can extract more favorable legislation — and our last chance to make it easier for Democrats to win back the majority in 2016.We have one more hugely important chance to win a Senate race this year. Here’s why we need to take it:

We have this chance because Mary Landrieu fought to an all-or-nothing runoff in Louisiana on D‌ece‌mb‌er 6‌t‌h. Now she’s in an all-out sprint to the finish line, and the only major reporting deadline on this short campaign is S‌un‌day.

We need to step up and support her now.

Contribute $3 now to help Mary Landrieu file a strong financial report and win the last Senate seat of the year on December 6th.

This is also our last opportunity to re-elect a key ally who has defended her vote for the Affordable Care Act when the politics worked against her and has actively pushed for theEmployment Non-Discrimination Act.

That’s Mary Landrieu.

Thank you for supporting her today,

Chuck Schumer

It is also important to note, that Schumer is an opponent of the Keystone XL Pipeline and has voted against the project back in 2012. Landrieu, at the moment, is try to whip 60 votes in the Senate to pass the project.
