When I first came up with the idea for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a lot of people told me, “Don't do it.”

They said that the big banks and their army of lobbyists would spend whatever it takes to stop us – and their allies in Congress would fight like crazy to preserve the status quo.

But we got organized, and we won. Today is the one-year birthday of the consumer agency opening its doors, and it is already pushing toward mortgages and credit cards that are easier to understand and holding lenders that break the law accountable.

Now Republicans are pushing laws that would cut the legs out from underneath the consumer agency — or repeal it outright.

The fight to keep the new consumer agency shows just how important it is that we send advocates for the middle class to Washington – and that the Democrats control the U.S. Senate.

We can't afford to lose in November. Please donate $X to my campaign and to the DSCC to prevent the Senate from falling into Republican control.

I've seen for myself in the Senate race in Massachusetts that the Republicans will do and say anything to win in November. What's more, they are raising unprecedented amounts of money to defeat Senate Democrats across the country.

We stood up to them before, and by building a powerful grassroots campaign all across the country, we can win again.

Thank you for being a part of this,

Elizabeth
