How to Help in Georgia!

The majority in the U.S. Senate will be decided by two run-off elections in Georgia on January 5th and folks have been clamoring to send help to our fellow Democrats in the Peach State! Here’s what you can do to help deliver a Democratic majority to our new President:

  1. Give $5 or $10 to take the Senate back! Chip in and your contribution will be split evenly between candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock and the Missouri Democratic Party. Triple your impact with just a few bucks!
  2. Make phone calls to Georgia voters! Virtual volunteers like you can have a huge impact in these races, so please sign up now

We’ve got all these resources and info on our dedicated webpage at:

Congratulations to Betsy Fogle in the 135th District!

After a too-close-to-call race and a recount, Democrat Betsy Fogle has FLIPPED the district’s seat from red to blue and she will join the Missouri House of Representatives as our newest member. Greene County Democrats and all our supporters, donors, and volunteers in the Greater Springfield area helped make this victory a reality. We are overjoyed to send a new member from SWMO to join House Democratic Leader Crystal Quade. Thank you, everybody!

Thank you for Looking Forward with Us

Thanks to everyone who jumped on our public debrief session on Thursday evening. It was an extremely productive meeting with tons of great feedback, constructive criticism, and the entire staff walked away with new ideas and goals. 

Reshaping our strategy, next steps, and long-term planning will be an ongoing process so please feel free to reach out and we can work together to move forward and put some more wins in our pocket.
