WEEK OF NOV 8, 2020
We did it! We may not have won the battle here in Florida, but we won the war nationally, and boasted an 85% turnout of Dems in St Johns County. We give thanks to the remarkable leadership of Robin Dion and Marie Garnes and greatly appreciate their dedication, persistence, and hard work in leading the army of volunteers who called, texted, wrote letters and postcards and dropped campaign literature. “It takes a village” and we were there!
Congratulations to Roxanne Horvath, Barbara Blonder, Nicole Crosby, Mary Lawrence, Jane West, Gayle Gardner, Joan Anthony, Anthony Coleman and Robert Olson, winners on the Blue Wave slate!
But–We’re Not Done Yet!
BREAKING: Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock are BOTH heading to RUNOFF ELECTIONS in Georgia
The New York Times: “If Democrats are able to win both seats, and if Joe Biden wins the presidency, they would have the 50 senators needed to usher through judicial and cabinet appointments, and enact a Democratic agenda.”
“So we’re launching a MASSIVE Voter Turnout Effort in Georgia to flood the polls with Democratic Voters, elect Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, and win control of the Senate.”
Both Rev Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff are going to need every ounce of our energy. We can do this! Donate to either campaign through ActBlue or Stacey Abrams’ Fair Fight. This would bring the senate count to 50/50. So donate, phone bank, text or go to GA and knock doors!
Georgia will have 2 special elections for U.S. Senate in January because no candidate won above 50%. Those two Senate seats would deliver the Senate to Democrats. Runoff election: Jan. 5, 2021; early voting begins December 14.
So many people like you already did your part. We’re tired. We’re ready for a break (and soon you should take one). But we also need to help win these 2 Senate races. Please make a donation to them today.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.

What else can we do?
GEORGIA SENATE RUNOFF — January 5, 2021
Postcarding starts now. Postcards must be mailed by December 7th.
*A requirement for this action is that you must purchase postcards specific to the Georgia Senate runoff.
Much of the nation is going to be focused on Georgia in the next two months and Georgians are likely to be overwhelmed. We don’t want our efforts to backfire, so this effort with Reclaim Our Vote is specifically designed to reach their targeted population: the postcard matches the billboards, the messaging is non-partisan, and ROV is partnering with a GA-based grassroots organization to make sure they are effective in turning out the vote.
Sign up for addresses & purchase postcards HERE.
Then get your stamps and Avery labels set to go (Avery #5160, e0labels per sheet). The deadline to mail these postcards is December 7.
Reclaim Our Vote will also be phone banking by mid-November, and they will have an active and targeted billboard campaign to turn out the vote for this all-important set of elections.
As always, we love to hear from you! Drop us a line that you are safe and healthy.
Let us know if you need anything!
