[Strategy memo] Harley Rouda endorsed by national Democrats

Team Rouda's momentum is real: across America, people are coming together to send a message to Donald Trump and take back our country.

That's why I'm thrilled to announce that, growing out of our campaign's grassroots energy, national Democrats have officially backed Harley's campaign for Congress. Harley has been added to the national Red-to-Blue program, which identifies top pickup opportunities for Democrats across America.

Why is this critical? Because, with less than a month left until the primary, there's a very real chance that NO Democrat advances to the November general election.

The latest polling shows Harley surging into a three-way tie for second place, but with two Republicans still threatening to advance to the general election:

Democrats will only take back Congress if we put our strongest candidate forward. To beat Dana Rohrabacher in November, that's Harley Rouda.

Democrats in Orange County have been saying it since Harley first got into the race. That's why Harley has been endorsed by prominent California leaders like Rep. Zoe Lofgren, Rep. Linda Sánchez, Rep. Alan Lowenthal, Rep. Lou Correa, Rep. Jared Huffman, and Rep. Loretta Sánchez.

It's also why we've won the recent endorsements of the Sierra Club and several Orange County labor unions: because they know Harley will be a tremendous ally in Congress for working families in Orange County, and for protecting California's coastline, clean air, and clean water.

The race to the primary is on. And Harley's ability to finish in the top two depends on your grassroots support.

Donate today. So much depends on it.
