When partisan lawmakers are holding our country—and our economy—hostage, Rep. Keith Ellison relies on ThinkProgress to hold them accountable. So do millions of others.

But hard-hitting, fact-based coverage requires a lot of resources—and we don’t have the Koch Brothers or Super PACs to foot our bills. We rely on people like you, and we need your help right now. To continue providing the important economic coverage that you and Rep. Ellison depend on, we need to raise $50,000 by midnight Friday.

ThinkProgress’s survival depends on your support. Rep. Ellison is supporting ThinkProgress, so we can continue our critical work. We hope you will too.

Thanks,
