FIRST MORNING WITHOUT TRUMP

Did you feel that just now? What it’s like to wake up when Trump is not president? In a world where we own the House and Senate? Excuse me while I take a brief crying break. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and the top of my lungs to every single Field Team 6 volunteer, organizer, and donor! You made this incredible day happen!! This victory is yours. You lifted the curse on our land, and helped give Democrats the House in 2018 – the White House in 2020 – and the Senate in 2021. Those 30k Democrats you registered and over 15 million (!!!) you reached in swing states were absolutely instrumental to these victories. We now celebrate the end of a national nightmare that was so personal to us. Deep ugly has been answered by deeper beauty. We the people — the *demos* — came together to save our democracy. And watched the sanctity of our Capitol restored at a peaceful, safe, profoundly inspiring inauguration. My heart is bursting with gratitude, happiness, and hope. The joyous work now continues, with more joy than ever. THANK YOU FOREVER for what you’ve done!


THE NEW PLAN

The Resistance now becomes the Movement. What our Movement does now will decide whether or not we actually make all the progress we’ve dreamed of these last four years. 

We’ve earned our survival, against all odds, by the thinnest of margins. In the Senate, our 50/50 majority is so small, it’s not even a majority! And history tells us the winning party loses seats in the midterm two years later. So there’s only one thing to do. We need to change history. In 2022, we must grow our Senate and House majorities, especially in our 8 Triple Word Score states. Our new strategy is to *also* focus on downballot races in swing states, harnessing them to register Democrats. We’ll win small races to help us win bigger ones! FIRST UP: Join our Adopt-a-Traitor campaign, already in progress! 147 Republicans voted to invalidate the 2020 election. But many of them are untouchable, safe in their hardcore Republican bastions. So we’ve done a deep data dive, and targeted the most flippable seats in the most important swing states. With your help, we can register enough Democrats to boot these traitors from the House and Senate! (Details/sign up info below!) NEXT: In March, we’ll target Texas, which will hold mayoral elections across the state on May 1, 2021. After that, we’ll roll out voter registration campaigns in each of our 8 target states: AZ, FL, GA, NC, NV, PA, TX, and WI. We’ll also ramp up our nationwide efforts in targeted congressional districts to grow our House majority. (For a full overview of our plan for the next two years, check out our Strategy Briefing below!) There’s so much good work to do. And we’re just the people for the job. Let’s gooooo!!


BIG NEWS

ADOPT-A-TRAITOR!Hours after the attempted coup, 147 Republicans voted to overturn an American election. We’ve found 3 million unregistered Democrats in their districts. Let’s make sure they lose their seats by a landslide.

Welcome to our new Adopt-a-Traitor campaign! To start, we’re adopting three traitors representing battleground states whose districts are eminently flippable. Sign up for their phone banks here:Phone Bank to Unseat Traitor Richard Hudson (R-NC)Phone Bank to Unseat Traitor Carlos Gimenez (R-FL)Phone Bank to Unseat Traitor Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) Money is the only thing separating us from adding text banks, targeted emails, and social media ads to the battle. So adopt one of these traitors yourself, and help us raise the funds to unleash the full power of our digital organizing! Donate here to level up these campaigns:Click to Adopt Traitor Richard Hudson (R-NC)Click to Adopt Traitor Carlos Gimenez (R-FL)Click to Adopt Traitor Beth Van Duyne (R-TX) BREAKING NEWS: we’ll soon be adding postcarding too! Check HERE for updates. In the coming days, we’ll post a list of additional traitors up for adoption, always prioritizing the most flippable ones to make sure your work has maximum impact. Let us know which traitors you’d like to adopt HERE, and if they’re over our flippability threshold, we’ll start an Adopt-a-Traitor fundraising page for them. Remember, in 2022 every single Democrat we register in Florida will also help us beat Governor Ron DeSantis and Senator Marco Rubio. In North Carolina, they’ll help us take the Senate seat Richard Burr is leaving open. In Texas, they’ll help get rid of Governor Greg Abbott in 2022, and Ted Cruz in 2024. Huge thanks to our organizer heroes Gina Harris, Mervis Reissig, and Ashley Craig for leading these phone banks. And if you’d like to lead your own phone bank into these or other target districts, WONDERFUL! Let us know HEREThis is going to be fun!
