ME-Sen: PCCC, "Shenna Bellows (D) Is The NSA's Worst Nightmare"
Received this e-mail last night from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee regarding U.S. Senate candidate Shenna Bellows (D. ME):
Just yesterday, Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA has a secret hacking program that "infiltrates computers around the world." Snowden's revelation is huge, and yet Congress is doing nothing.

If we're going to end the NSA's abuses, we need to elect people who are actually committed to ending unconstitutional surveillance. Enter Shenna Bellows -- former Executive Director of ACLU Maine who is running against fake "moderate" Republican Susan Collins for U.S. Senate.

Shenna Bellows acknowledges her grandfather, Bill Bellows, while announcing her campaign to challenge Sen. Susan Collins at Forage Market in Lewiston on Wednesday. Standing behind the World War II veteran is Shenna Bellows' husband Brandon Baldwin.
Shenna's the real deal. A bold progressive. A libertarian on civil liberties issue. And someone who we can trust to fight the NSA's abuses -- if we help her win.

In the final 48 hours before a big fundraising deadline, can you donate $3 or more to Shenna Bellow's inspiring campaign for Senate in Maine? Click here.


Susan Collins votes lockstep with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell from Kentucky, but pretends to be moderate back home.

In Maine, many libertarians vote Republican. But they are increasingly inspired by Shenna's decade of experience fighting for civil liberties -- and her passion to bring that fight to Washington.

When announcing her campaign, Shenna declared we must "repeal the Patriot Act and restore our constitutional freedoms."

She even led the charge to pass a groundbreaking law in Maine to protect cell phone privacy. And she successful passed a resolution in Maine calling for the repeal of the Patriot Act.

If Shenna has a great fundraising quarter, she'll get lots of national support. We can win this seat and have a great champ -- but we need to act now.

Donate $3 today to help Shenna's campaign before the big fundraising deadline on December 31. Click here.


Thanks for being a bold progressive.
