Here's an all-star Democratic candidate you need to know about: Jose Hernandez, a NASA Astronaut running for Congress in central California.

As a child, Jose worked side by side with his parents picking crops across the San Joaquin Valley. He grew up to become a world-class engineer that helped develop life-saving mammogram technology. Then, a NASA astronaut who flew a 14-day space mission in 2009. Not bad, right?

Jose's Tea Party Republican opponent, Jeff Denham, voted to end Medicare, defund Planned Parenthood, and give more tax breaks to millionaires.

It seems like this race should be a no-brainer for voters -- but here's the catch: Denham and his big corporate backers have millions of dollars to spend on ad buys smearing Jose's record.

Will you contribute $X or more right now to help Jose Hernandez get on the air and set the record straight?

In Congress, Jose will stand up against the Republicans' schemes to sell out seniors' Social Security and Medicare benefits for more millionaire tax breaks. But right now, we have to get Jose's back against the oncoming onslaught of attacks heading his way.

Please don't wait, Jose needs your help right away. Donate $X or more today.

Thanks,

Robby
