After all, there is plenty to celebrate. In addition to November's victory, the President has already won another major battle in averting the fiscal cliff: He stood fast against Tea Party resistance, and at the end 85 House Republicans voted to let tax cuts expire on the wealthiest 2% of Americans. We'll provide some details about the deal on the night.

January 21 is also Martin Luther King Day, and we are planning to honor that great American as well. The concurrence of these two particular occasions is especially poignant, soI hope you all will be able to drop in to enjoy a drink and a bite - the food's on us!. See you there!

Best, Richard and the Democrats Abroad Milan Board

To make the contribution:

Democrats Abroad-Milan has the pleasure of inviting you to a very special evening. Massachussetts Senate Candidate
Prof. Elizabeth Warren will be speaking live to Democrats Abroad across Europe, and will answer our pre-submitted questions. Warren is in a tight race to win back the seat held for decades by the late Teddy Kennedy - and Democratic control of the Senate hangs in the balance. Elizabeth Warren is an authoritative voice against the abuses of the financial industry. We need her in the Senate and she deserves our donations.

Her talk will be followed by a screening of the first of three debates between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, about 18 hours after it is held in Denver. No need to remind you what is at stake in this contest.
