Former President Bill Clinton lent his name to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) email Thursday asking supporters to donate to Nevada state Treasurer Kate Marshall, who is running for the U.S. House.

Marshall is seeking to win a seat long held by Republicans against former Nevada Republican Party Chairman Mark Amodei. The DCCC has yet to spend anything on the race, although the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has spent nearly $345,000 on the race in the Republican-leaning district.

"Kate Marshall is running for Congress in Nevada and can take a seat from the Republicans," writes Clinton. "They are scared because it shows their plan to dismantle Medicare and Social Security will fail. My friend is ready to fight back against the NRCC’s ad, but Kate needs our support."

Clinton's email went out to Marshall's email list on Tuesday and the DCCC's list on Thursday.

The election is set for Sept. 13.
