MORSE (VOICEOVER): "I grew up exploring nearly every part of these mountains. I'm not afraid of a challenge.

"And neither were my ancestors, like my great-grandma Edith, who manned the telegraph booth at Donner Pass with her pistol by her side.

"But generations later, we have real challenges in the Sierra – like protecting our watersheds, and proactively working to prevent wildfires." 

MORSE (TO CAMERA): "I'm Jessica Morse, and I approve this message because I'm not afraid to tackle these challenges in Congress."
