PUT A RING ON IT
Every good thing we’re seeing right now – the reversal of the Muslim ban, the reversal of the transgender military ban, the emergency family reunification task force, an all-of-government response to Covid as well as the climate crisis – all of it is happening because Democrats won. And on the Republican side, the parade of horrors continues. Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy flies to Florida to kiss the ring of the Fast Food Fascist… and grovel for his help taking back the House in 2022. Marjorie Taylor Greene – who advocated the assassination of Nancy Pelosi, and believes Jewish Space Lasers started California wildfires (for real) – gives a flaccid apology and receives a standing ovation from half the GOP members. Our work starts now. The fate of the Senate, the House, and crucial down ballot elections will be determined by how early we start organizing. Will we get the years we need to undo Trump’s damage, strengthen our democracy against those who would destroy it, and build an America that fulfills its promise? We’re seeing the great good we can do with even the slimmest of majorities, in just a few days. Imagine what we could do with more Democrats and more time. Fortunately, we can do more than imagine. We can make it happen! We’ve done the research and targeting to make sure your volunteer hours have the maximum impact. Sign up now for one of our Adopt-a-Traitor phone banks into the most flippable Republican districts in the most important states! Donate to unleash the full force of our texting on these districts! And starting next week, sign up for postcarding into these districts too (big news below)! Because that wave of sanity-ecstasy we feel when we see government actually working for the people?! We don’t just like it… we wanna put a ring on it.
THE NEW PLAN
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 midterms. 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 down ballot races in swing states, harnessing them to register Democrats. We’ll win small races to help us win bigger ones! LAUNCHED: Join our Adopt-a-Traitor campaign, already in progress! 147 Republicans voted to invalidate the 2020 election. 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! 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!) Let’s gooooo!!
SHEPARD FAIREY POSTCARDS!Field Team 6 is thrilled to announce that the one and only Shepard Fairey – the brilliant artist behind the iconic Obama HOPE poster – is providing art for our postcard campaign! See left for a sneak preview of one, featuring the visionary John Lewis. To get involved, please contact our brand-new Postcarding Czars Sharon Lord Greenspan and Janet Ho HERE. We’ll be launching our first postcarding efforts into the same three districts we’re targeting as part of our Adopt-a-Traitor efforts. Speaking of which…
ADOPT-A-TRAITOR PROGRESS REPORT!Our Adopt-a-Traitor campaign is officially up and running. To date, we’ve targeted three Congressional traitors from extremely flippable districts, with plans for many more to come. We’ve already set up phone banks (links below), but we can’t add text banks, targeted emails, and social media ads to our efforts until we hit our fundraising targets. Please adopt one of our traitors today to help get us over the top! FT6 Media Team leader Jeff Sielaff made helpful introductory videos for each of our first three traitors…

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. So don’t wait… adopt a traitor today! Plus – if there’s a particular traitor you’d like us to target (there are unfortunately so many to choose from…), let us know by contacting our new Adopt-a-Traitor Campaign Managers Susan Machtinger and Rob Fisher, M.D. HERE. If your preferred traitor gets enough interest and represents a district that’s over our flippability threshold, we’ll start a fundraising page to get that campaign going. And if you’d like to lead your own phone bank into the above or other target districts, WONDERFUL! Let us know HERE!
