Senate Debate - Senator Barbara Boxer Debate Watch Party

I attended a fundraiser for Senator Barbara Boxer, Monday night, co-hosted by Aaron Peskin, Emily Salgado and Dick Grosboll.

Barbara's loyal  supporters, going back to her Board of Supervisor days in Marin, came together to hear Barbara:

"I am in this race for a reason, to make life better for the people I represent".

"These are hard times, if ever I needed to get back there, it is now. If ever it is needed  to win - it is now."
