This morning, we are one step closer to making history. In Hawaii, VoteVets PAC-endorsed Iraq veteran Tulsi Gabbard has won her primary, in a stunning come-from-behind victory. If she wins in November, she along with Tammy Duckworth (who we also feel very good about), would be the first female combat veteran ever elected to Congress in United States history!
This is happening because of you. Your tens of thousands of dollars in donations for Tulsi’s campaign, through VoteVets PAC, allowed her to run a first-rate effort.
Also, because of your support, VoteVets Action Fund was able to spread Tulsi’s amazing bio, through television ads, mailers, and phone calls. In fact, at the beginning of the race, Tulsi trailed by over 65 points. Once our ads ran for five weeks, she pulled into a dead heat, because the people of the district were as impressed with her as we were. VoteVets Action Fund was the first group to step up to help her close that gap. In all, VoteVets Action Fund spent over $317,000 promoting Tulsi’s incredible biography.
Now, we’re even closer to sending another incredible veteran to Congress, to add to the growing voice of today’s progressive veterans in the halls of power. From all of us at VoteVets.org, I want to thank you for helping to make this all possible. It’s a great day for all of us.
|A 45 point swing in the polls is enough to draw some attention. But it also makes people desperate.
That’s exactly what we’re seeing in Hawaii. Our endorsed candidate and Iraq Vet Tulsi Gabbard has erased a double-digit margin to take the lead. Her primary opponent has certainly noticed and may be bending the rules in an attempt to hold off Tulsi’s challenge. Her campaign has filed an FEC complaint, but she needs our help right now.
Tulsi has a crucial deadline coming up on July 15. Without our help, Tulsi won’t have the resources she needs to overcome these deceptive tactics.

It’s no surprise that her opponent is doing this. Every time a voter hears about Tulsi, they like her more and more. But, to keep her on even footing, it will take our help. Now is the time to get involved and help this amazing and inspiring veteran. Her election is just 30 days away and she is up against a July 15th campaign finance filing – she needs us to stand with her shoulder-to-shoulder today.

I know how hard it is to run for Congress, and all it takes. Tulsi will win this race if we do our part, but not if we don’t stand with her to combat her opponent’s tactics.

Thanks for all your support.
All the Way! Airborne!
