I’m sure you’re busy catching up after a busy holiday season, but I wanted to reach out real quick to share some incredible news. I just got out of a meeting with my finance team, and thanks to your support last month, we hit our end-of-year fundraising goal!

Hitting our goal is a testament to the strength of this grassroots team. I couldn’t be more thankful to have you and everyone else who has either chipped in or spread our message to their friends and family by my side in this fight.

Thanks to you, we’re starting this year strong and on a path to making history in 2024. Your investment in our campaign is what will get us across the finish line and get me in the Office of the Attorney General fighting for you as Washington’s first Black statewide elected official.

Together, we’ll make our vision a reality — building a better Washington where everyone, no matter the color of their skin, where they live, or who they love, can thrive.

Thank you again, and here’s to keeping our momentum throughout the new year!

Did you see this interview?

In this post-Dobbs landscape, anti-abortion activists will stop at nothing to strip away our full range of reproductive freedoms right here in Washington state.

As you know, a Trump-appointed federal judge in Texas issued a nationwide ban eliminating access to mifepristone. Bob and his team took action and filed their own lawsuit to successfully preserve access to mifepristone here in Washington.

With the U.S. Supreme Court about to determine the future of access to mifepristone, Bob joined CNN to discuss the multi-state coalition he is leading to protect abortion access. Watch the clip:

We know we can count on Bob Ferguson to keep fighting for reproductive freedom in the face of mounting attacks on our freedoms from the far right. Want to help Bob defeat anti-choice Republican Dave Reichert? Sign up to volunteer.

Thank you,

Team Ferguson

P.S. For the next three months, Bob is subject to the legislative session freeze, which means that we legally cannot accept donations until March.

We just secured another big win for Washington families.

Thanks to our successful lawsuits against chicken and tuna companies who cheated Washingtonians with their corporate price-fixing schemes, hundreds of thousands of Washington families will now receive restitution checks in the mail.

Our investigation uncovered evidence that chicken and tuna producers throughout the industry engaged in a coordinated effort to keep production low and prices high — in direct violation of Washington’s antitrust laws.

This scheme cost Washingtonians millions, and I’m proud to say that we’ve recovered more than $40 million thanks to our lawsuits against the companies involved. These restitution payments to families who were least able to afford the increase in the price of groceries.

We’re not done – we still have an upcoming trial with 3 large chicken producers who benefitted from the scheme.

I’m proud of the work we’ve done to combat price gouging and make our state more affordable, and I’ll always keep fighting to protect Washingtonians from corporate greed — as Attorney General and as Governor.

If you’d like to help me keep doing this important work, consider signing up to volunteer for my campaign today. I’m going to need your help to defeat my anti-choice Republican opponent, Dave Reichert, next November.

Thank you,

Bob Ferguson

I hope you’ve enjoyed the holiday season with your friends and family!

Looking back on 2023, it has been a very busy and life-changing year for me. We launched this campaign in the summer, and since then, I’ve been crisscrossing the state, meeting Washingtonians in their communities to listen and learn about the issues that matter most to them.

Before I get into it more, can I count on your support today? Our end-of-year fundraising deadline is this Sunday at 11:59 PM. By chipping in today, you’ll help set us up for success in the new year. Will you chip in?

I feel so lucky to have connected this year with many of Washington’s unions, tribes, and advocacy groups, who all share the same vision of a brighter future for all Washingtonians. And I’m incredibly proud to have already earned the endorsement of dozens of these groups and local leaders. Having them, you, and so many others on this grassroots team gives me hope and energizes me to keep going to make our dream of a better Washington a reality.

A Washington where everyone has a right to be safe no matter their age, their race, their gender, or where they live. On day one in office, I’ll be ready to fight to prevent gun violence, combat climate change, stand up for abortion access, and so much more.

But to get there, we must ensure our campaign reaches our critical end-of-year goal. Hitting this goal means we will be able to continue to grow our grassroots movement and win in November. From buying supplies for volunteers to getting yard signs up and even hiring more campaign staff, your contribution goes a long way toward helping us power this campaign.

If you can today, please chip in $10 or more to help us reach our end-of-year goal, and put us on a winning path in 2024. Your support, no matter the amount, has a tremendous impact on this people-powered campaign.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your support this year. Whether you’ve donated, volunteered, or shared our campaign with friends and family, your support will ensure we start the new year ready to win!

Since the overturning of Roe, we’ve seen extremist politicians and judges attack reproductive rights across the country.

And just last week, the Supreme Court announced they would hear a case that could ban common abortion medications like mifepristone. If the court decides to side with anti-choice extremists like they did when they overturned Roe v. Wade, it would be another devastating blow to reproductive rights — one that would affect women nationwide, even in states with abortion protections like Washington.

Our daughters deserve better! Washingtonians can’t afford to live in a world where their daughters have fewer rights than their mothers and grandmothers.

As Washington’s next Attorney General, I will fight to protect a woman’s right to an abortion — doing everything I can to protect all forms of reproductive health care despite constant attacks from extremists.

Chip in today to ensure Washingtonians have a champion for reproductive rights working for them as Attorney General.

Thank you,
--Nick

Thank you, Tri-Cities Herald editors, for your endorsement!

Our affordable housing and growing homeless crises is a complex issue that will need the voices and ideas of all stakeholders to address. I appreciate all of our community members who have shared their diverse perspectives with me. The common theme I hear is that our resources are overwhelmed and we need more housing. I believe that we can work together across local business partnerships, community support organizations, and community resources to address this issue with local solutions.
