THE RESISTANCE WINS AGAIN
The Resistance struck a mighty blow last Tuesday, when Democrats won majorities in both Virginia statehouses! As if that weren’t enough, in Kentucky, Democrat Andy Beshear defeated a Republican incumbent to become the governor… in a state Trump won by 30 points. When something this good happens, I can’t help it – I yell.
There’s been a lot of yelling in my house since Tuesday.
This is SO much more than a victory of one side over the other. This means people’s lives will improve in real ways. The ERA can now be passed. Minimum wages will rise. Gerrymandering will end in Virginia. Hundreds of thousands of voters will be re-enfranchised.
And this was ALL made possible by YOU – THE GRASSROOTS. Beshear won the governor’s mansion by 5,000 VOTES. That is what’s known as a FIELD MARGIN – well within the amount we’re able to effect by our actions in the field – i.e. voter registration, canvassing, phone banking, texting, postcarding. It is perfectly clear: the GRASSROOTS DID THIS.
Now we need to make sure we replicate these victories on a massive scale one year from now. Field Team 6 is doing the #1 most important work there is to help topple Trump, flip the Senate, and grow the House.
And we need your help!
You can also SIGN UP for a voter drive, sign up to lead one like the badass you know you are, or connect us with an activist friend in one of our targeted states. (Our 11 states: AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IA, ME, MI, NC, PA, WI.)
TOGETHER, we can do the impossible.
We know, because we just did – AGAIN!!!
