Hi, Friends – As we head into the final stretch of the campaign, I wanted to reach out and update you on some important developments. Please take a moment to read these updates, and if you can, chip in $10 to help elect state Democrats.
Every day, I sift through hundreds of data points that predict trends and patterns in the states before they occur. And what I’m seeing from the data is remarkable:
If you handed me this exact data one year ago, I wouldn’t have believed that it was real. Democrats are building and carving out leads across the board, including in key battleground states that Donald Trump is targeting this fall.
In Arizona, a must-win state for Trump, state Democrats are building out the necessary ground game to break the Republican trifecta and flip both legislative chambers blue – for the first time since 1967.
In North Carolina, where we’ve watched Republicans gerrymander and rig our democracy, an incredible slate of Democrats are fighting to flip both chambers right before legislative and congressional maps are to be redrawn for the next ten years. Newly-released polls are showing a dead heat.
And in Michigan, a state which voted for Trump and then flipped to elect Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer during the midterms, Democrats are hoping to make a GOP nightmare come true by flipping the state House blue.
These are ambitious goals – ones that I know we can achieve together. But with the stakes of this election so high, we can’t take any of these leads for granted. We must do everything in our power to usher a new generation of Democrats into statehouses across America.
This election isn’t over yet. Republicans are working to regain their leads and stage a monumental comeback as we speak.
Across the country, the Trump campaign is blanketing the airwaves. Mitch McConnell and his right-wing super PACs are spending aggressively to prop up their pro-Trump candidates. And former House Speakers Newt Gingrich, Paul Ryan, and John Boehner are funding a $125 million effort to win key statehouses and gerrymander the GOP into power for the next decade.
I can’t emphasize this enough: Republicans still have a window to catch up and erase our Democratic leads. The only way we can prevent a GOP comeback is by fully-funding Democratic campaigns, rallying our supporters, and ensuring every vote cast is counted.
