A Democratic senator blasted his own party’s fundraising apparatus on Monday, saying that the party’s congressional campaign committee is “bumming people out” with fundraising emails full of hopelessness and despair.

“Who writes these? They really need to stop bumming people out. In order to win we must communicate that we BELIEVE,” Hawaii Sen. Brian Schatz wrote on Twitter.

Schatz was responding to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee email asking for financial support ahead of Tuesday’s special election in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.

“Kiss all hope goodbye,” is the subject of the email.

“Georgia Democrats’ early vote lead PLUNGES,” the headline reads.
