A VOTER A DAY KEEPS THE FASCISTS AWAY

Watching this second impeachment trial, we can’t help but think two things. One: We need Republicans to join us. And two: We won’t get enough Republicans to join us. The second thought is tragically true. And on key issues, will remain true. The first, I’d like to reframe. Right now, to convict the former president in the Senate, it’s true: we need Republicans to join us. But in the broadest sense, what we really need is to elect more Democrats to the Senate. We do that by registering more Democratic voters in key swing states, every week from now until November 2022. This is also how we grow our House majority, flip governor’s mansions, and win key mayoral races across America. Let this crisis focus our hearts on exactly what we need to do so that fascism never again threatens American democracy. Let us use the short, brutish tenure of the greatest traitor in our history as the fuel we need to build the America we’ve dreamed of.


BIG NEWS

POSTCARDING LAUNCH PARTY!

We are thrilled to happy tears that the one and only Shepard Fairey – the brilliant artist behind the iconic Obama HOPE poster – is providing Field Team 6 with a series of art pieces for our postcarding campaign to register new Democrats in key swing states and districts! They are at the printer now! We’re launching our program with a party, March 14, 2021 at 4:30p PT! Sign up HERE. And check our Volunteer Ops over the next few days to find the “Postcarding” link, which will allow you to order materials, get your addresses, get script guidance, and more.

ADOPT-A-TRAITOR UPDATE!

We’re off to a rousing start! We began by targeting three Congressional traitors from extremely flippable districts… and already we’ve hit our goal for one! Beth Van Duyne of Texas… come on down! What does Beth win for her anti-democracy vote to overturn the results of the 2020 Election and subvert the will of the American people? The full panoply of outreach from Field Team 6: texting, emails, targeted ads and our spiffy new postcards. Yes, we’ll be reminding voters in Beth’s district (which she won by just over 4,500 votes) that she doesn’t care about votes, voters or any of the neat freedom stuff that makes democracy work. Nice job, Beth! And that allows us to now adopt California’s own Mike Garcia, who weaseled into Katie Hill’s old seat (with a heartbreaking 333 votes) and promptly disgraced himself. Please adopt one of our traitors today and help get us the funding we need to add text banks, targeted emails, and social media ads to our efforts to unseat these treason-weasels in 2022. Check out a couple of our adoption videos below – created by FT6 Media Team Leader Jeff Sielaff – and get in the democracy-saving spirit today!

Phone banks coming soon!

And remember – when you adopt one of these Congressional traitors, you get bonus chances to unseat a second traitor in the Senate and a third traitor in the Governor’s mansion! 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. And in Texas, they’ll help get rid of Governor Greg Abbott in 2022, and Ted Cruz in 2024.
