In his State of the Union address, President Obama called on Congress to act to reduce gun violence.
But we know that for any hope of Congress taking action, we need to weaken the NRA's power over our elected leaders.
We have a crucial opportunity to do that but there are only 10 days left. If we can defeat the two NRA "A" rated candidates in Illinois' 2nd Congressional District special election on February 26, we can make sure the NRA doesn't tighten its grip on Congress, and show representatives all over the country that support for the NRA's extreme agenda is a horrible re-election strategy.
NRA's "A" list candidates Debbie Halvorson and Toi Hutchinson are two of the leading candidates to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. in a South Chicago district that has been tragically racked by gun violence.
Over the last week, CREDO SuperPAC has launched two targeted canvas operations to reach a strategic universe of likely voters in person, and make sure they know Hutchinson's and Halvorson's history of supporting NRA obstruction.
With an election this close, this in-person voter contact will make the difference. But we need your support to reach enough voters, and keep this congressional district out of the NRA's hands.
Thanks for taking action against the NRA.
Becky Bond, President
