We’ve got opposition, my friends.
Our primary field is set, now that the filing deadline has passed. Two other candidates have also filed to run for the Democratic nomination in Michigan’s 14th District. They’re already actively pursuing a negative campaign against me.
This is my first re-election campaign for Congress. I’ve worked hard — really hard — to do the people’s work, but I need your help. We can’t take this election for granted and I’m working hard to earn every vote. I need you. Together, we can be victorious in 2016.
Support is Building
I’m honored to have recently earned the endorsements of the Michigan State AFL-CIO, United Auto Workers Region 1, Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights, American Federation of Teachers-Michigan, Sheet Metal Workers Local 80, Pipefitters Local 636, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, The Sierra Club and dozens of other community leaders and organizations.
Please let me know if we can add your name to our list of endorsers. To see the current roster, visit www.brendalawrence.com
Opening our Detroit Campaign Office
We’re already out in the community, continuing to build grassroots support.
This Saturday, April 23rd we’re officially opening our Detroit Campaign Office. Please join us for this free event from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Its located at 18409 Livernois Avenue, Detroit, Michigan 48221.
Building the party organization in preparation for a strong general election effort is very important to me. This office is a joint effort with our 14th District Democratic Organization. At the office opening, we’ll be collecting donations of office supplies to help get it started. Come out and enjoy the food and fellowship!
Cecile Richards is Coming to Michigan
I’m excited to share that on Friday, May 6th Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards will be in town. She’s an amazing progressive leader, fighting every day for women’s health care on the national level.
She’ll be here as a special guest for a reception in support of my campaign. It’ll be a private gathering, but if you’re in the Detroit area that day I’d be honored if you could join us. Are you interested in attending?
Again, I can’t do this alone. I need your help. Together, let’s win this nomination!
