Well, Richard, we knew it was coming.
Take a look at this headline from the Boston Herald this morning:
U.S. commerce lobby to wage war on Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth just introduced a bill with Senator Mark Warner that would hold credit reporting agencies like Equifax accountable for data breaches – like the hack that left millions of Americans vulnerable to fraud and identity theft.
Surprise, surprise: Equifax’s right-wing corporate lobbyist friends at the US Chamber of Commerce are declaring war. Yesterday they compared Elizabeth to Nazi sympathizer Steve Bannon – and encouraged other outside groups to pour money into Massachusetts to defeat Elizabeth.
As the Boston Herald columnist wrote:
“Warren herself has a campaign war chest of nearly $13 million, according to the latest reports, but outside groups are likely to at least match that if they feel she is vulnerable this year.”
Our team has been fighting at every turn to build the strongest grassroots force that the Senate has ever seen. But all of that could go away if these outside groups decide to cut a few checks to buy the Massachusetts Senate seat.
If we want to fight off attacks from outside groups and their deep-pocketed corporate allies, we must show them the strength of our grassroots support. Will you make your first donation of 2018 and chip in $45 – or whatever you can afford – and stand with Elizabeth?

he US Chamber of Commerce isn’t the local, friendly Chamber of Commerce that promotes the small businesses in your neighborhood. No, this is the largest conservative lobbying group in the country – spending tens of millions of dollars to rig the rules for giant corporations and fund right-wing candidates who will help them. When we say Washington works for the big guys who can hire armies of lawyers and lobbyists, the picture next to it should show the US Chamber of Commerce.
They don’t want giant corporations to be held accountable when they put millions of working Americans at risk. They want to get away with it – or even profit off of it, just like Equifax did.
The US Chamber of Commerce won’t stop Elizabeth from going after them with everything she’s got. Elizabeth never, ever backs down from a fight. No matter how big, rich, or greedy her opponents are, she’s going to fight for working people in Massachusetts and across the country.
But if a few billionaires and giant corporations decide to pour money into Massachusetts in 2018, it’s going to become our biggest and most important fight yet. While Elizabeth is fighting for us in the Senate, we need to have her back in this campaign.
The best way to stop the billionaires and outside groups is to show them that their dark money has no place in Massachusetts – because Elizabeth Warren’s grassroots support is stronger than ever.
Step up for the first time in 2018 and chip in $45 – or whatever you can afford – to help fight back against the US Chamber of Commerce and the right-wing dark money. Every supporter makes Elizabeth grassroots support stronger.
