The Senate just voted to confirm a former Goldman Sachs banker known as the "Foreclosure King" to run our economy as Treasury Secretary.
Every Democrat except one voted no on Trump's nominee Steve Mnuchin -- an important show of unity against Wall Street and Trump. This should be rewarded.
Senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala D. Harris voted no on Steve Mnuchin. Can you call them to say thank you for opposing Wall Street in this key vote?
YES -- I'll call Sens. Feinstein and Harris to say thanks for opposing Wall Street banker Steve Mnuchin -- and to say keep it up! Show me the number and a script.
NO -- But I'll chip in $3 to run TV ads holding accountable the most vulnerable 2018 Senate Republican (Dean Heller from Nevada, a state with massive foreclosures) for voting with Wall Street against his constituents.
The one Democrat to vote yes was West Virginia's Joe Manchin. Right now, PCCC members in his state are calling him to express extreme disappointment.
Weeks ago, tonight's show of Democratic strength against Wall Street was not expected.
The PCCC was the first group to run TV ads in key Democratic Senate states calling on senators to oppose Mnuchin. Every Democrat in these states voted no on Mnuchin! (Thank you to thousands of PCCC members who helped put these ads on the air.)
We also aired TV ads in key Republican states. They all voted with Wall Street against their constituents.
It's important we hold them accountable -- so please chip in $3 to our TV ad making clear that vulnerable Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nevada) voted against his constituents.
And it's also important that Democratic senators see that their constituents approve when they oppose Wall Street -- so please thank Sens. Feinstein and Harris today. Click here to make a quick call.
Thanks for making your voice heard, and being a bold progressive.
