Their state reps blocked healthcare. They’re running to change that.

As COVID-19 spikes across the country and federal leadership continues to fail, state lawmakers will shape their state’s reality — from accessing quality, affordable healthcare to ensuring good jobs. We are excited to share our newest slate of endorsed candidates who are ready to lead the fight to improve lives.

In the two states we’re endorsing in today, Kansas and Florida, we see just how much state lawmakers matter. The current majorities in both of these states have failed to expand Medicaid and by doing so, have robbed hundreds of thousands of people from accessing healthcare. In a moment as truly life-or-death as this, they have failed their constituents. 

Today, we’re endorsing a group of game-changing candidates because the fight to improve lives is urgent.

By supporting them, and by changing the balance of power in each of these states, you can help put quality, affordable healthcare back on the table for hundreds of thousands of Americans. Pitch in what you can today to support these and all of Future Now Fund’s endorsed candidates.
