35 Days Until Election Day


Behind the White House Effort to Pressure the C.D.C. on School Openings

According to documents and interviews with current and former government officials, top White House officials pressured the CDC this summer to play down the risk of sending children back to school in order to move up school reopening in one of the most sensitive public health debates of the pandemic.

The week in polls: Biden gains on Trump nationally, leads in most swing states

Heading into the presidential debates, Biden gained a half a percentage point in his national polling average lead over Trump in key states such as Pennsylvania. Biden leads Trump 54-45% among likely voters in Pennsylvania, thanks in part to a 2-1 lead in the Philadelphia suburbs, according to new polls.

This is no time to rest. We still need everybody doing their part to get out the vote. Have you signed up for one of our phonebank trainings?

Biden campaign tees up Trump tax issue on eve of first debate

The Biden campaign has prepared and is expected to address the tax fraud allegations and accuse Trump of gaming the system to avoid paying his fair share of taxes, in addition to undermining government advice on mask wearing, lying to Americans about the dangers of COVID-19 early on making the pandemic worse than it needed to be.

How are you watching the debate tonight?

The Undecideds: Sure, Biden and Trump are very different. But maybe neither is right for the job.

COPY: Undecided voters, a combination of third-party voters, independents, and “non-voters” from 2016, are waiting for the debates to make their decision and often sit in swing states. 

It is more important than ever to take action to get out the vote. Have you phone banked? Have you made a voting plan?

Amy Coney Barrett ‘will undo’ Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s legacy: Sen. Kamala Harris

Harris presented Barrett as the antithesis of Ginsburg’s legacy, but also said Barrett “will undo (Ginsburg’s) life’s work.” Harris pointed to the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade — the ruling that gave women the right to abortion — as aspects of American life that would be in jeopardy if Barrett is on the court.

We have an opportunity to protect our rights by flipping the senate. What’s your voting plan?
