YOU ARE THE HERO OF THIS STORY
Before there was a bill called the American Rescue Plan, the national Resistance was the American Rescue Plan. We can draw a direct line from the volunteer hours and donor dollars that you gave to Field Team 6, and our partners in this fight, to all the immense good that is happening now.
In about 50 days, America has gone from having the single worst Covid response in the world to being on the cusp of global leadership. The gigantic bill that President Biden just signed into law will provide $130 billion to help schools reopen, send $1400 relief checks to 85% of Americans, lower health insurance premiums to zero for anyone making up to 150% of the poverty line, and is projected to cut child poverty in half, and reduce adult poverty by a third. By the end of May, we’ll have enough vaccine supply for every adult American. You’re not seeing things – that light at the end of the tunnel just got way brighter.
Feel the urge to cry with relief? You’re not alone. Go ahead. You earned it.
This is the bold, competent, compassionate government we fought so hard for. And there’s no going back. We cannot lose the Senate, the House, and any chance of further healing and progress in the 2022 midterms.
We need to act now. We need to fight hard and smart, with all the love in our heart. We need to center ourselves in joy, draw courage from our heroes, and channel the electric inspiration of our success to power this movement. We need to register Democrats – and save the world.
On your marks… Get set…
HERE WE GO: SAVE THE HOUSE!
It’s conventional wisdom that the party that wins the White House (Democrats, baby!) loses seats in the House in the following midterm (boo). But here at Field Team 6, we eat conventional wisdom for breakfast. And we’re going to break this bummer of a trend in 2022 by holding onto the House! How? Well, it starts by reclaiming the seats that flipped from blue to red (heartbreaking!) in 2020.
We’re looking to raise enough money to do three things in each of our target districts:
- Buy the data for every unregistered likely Dem we can find
- Set up phone banks to register them
- Stand up postcarding campaigns to do the same
You can support these vital efforts by picking one (or all) of our selected districts and giving today! Here’s a look at our first three:
Donate to Flip CA-08 Blue!
In 2020, Chris Bubser narrowed the margin of defeat beyond what anyone thought possible for a Democrat in this district, and did the heavy lifting to put it in striking distance for an upset in 2022. Next year, let’s unseat Republican Jay Obernolte, who voted to cast out millions of voters’ legally cast votes and overturn another state’s free and fair 2020 election! Obernolte has only been in Congress a few months and has already voted against impeachment, against COVID relief, against the Equality Act, and against democracy.
Donate to Flip CA-21 Blue!
CA-21 flipped blue back in 2018 with Democrat TJ Cox unseating Republican David Valadao. In 2020, it flipped back to Valadao by a slim margin. He promptly rewarded his constituents by voting against the American Rescue Plan, the vital COVID relief and economic stimulus bill. This bill will help all Americans and is a literal lifesaver for the poorest, a fact David should be aware of since his district has a poverty rate of 23.4%. But he’d rather play politics than help them. Fine, David, we’ll play… by flipping you out for good.
Donate to Flip C0-03 Blue!
So… this district has been held by a Republican since 2010. But before that, it was anybody’s game. And today, the person representing the people CO-03 is none other than Lauren Boebert. Yes, the gun-toting, sedition-loving Republican congresswoman who gives Marjorie Taylor Greene a run for her money when it comes to being The Absolute Worst. Let’s do the country – and Coloradans – a favor by kicking her out of the halls of power in 2022.
147 Republicans voted to overturn an American election. We’ve found 3 million unregistered Democrats in their districts. Let’s register every single one we can – and make sure these traitors lose their seats in a landslide.
Treat traitors to the full panoply of FT6’s outreach efforts, including texts, emails, targeted ads, phone banks, and postcards.
Thanks to you, we’ve now raised the money to do that for two adoptees, Reps Beth Van Duyne (TX-24), and Mike Garcia (CA-25)!
We’ve left three of them on the board: Richard Hudson of North Carolina, Carlos Gimenez of Florida, and, even though we already hit our first fundraising goal, Southern California’s own Mike Garcia – aka the guy who slithered into Katie Hill’s old seat, won by just 333 votes in November, and then voted to overthrow democracy just weeks later. More fundraising will allow us to do more passes (which equals more voter touches) in this district!
Please adopt one – or all! – of these traitors today, so we can get our Democrat-minting machine up and running in their districts ASAP. Not sure who to choose? Check out the adoption videos below!
Traitor Richard Hudson (NC-08)
Goal: $7,548; Progress: $2,333
Traitor Carlos Gimenez (FL-26)
Goal: $5,106; Progress: $3,086
Traitor Mike Garcia (CA-25)
Goal: $3,446.77; Progress: $3,957 – GOAL MET+!
New Goal: raise an additional $1,500
A BIG THANK YOU!
First, thank you, thank you, thank you! We filled our anti-Mike Garcia war chest, have already started phone banking with the ThruTalk autodialer, and will soon start postcarding. To fund more phone bank passes with our effective-but-expensive autodialer, we’re looking to raise another $1,500. Can you chip in and help us unleash the full force of our digital organizing on every single unregistered likely Democrat in CA-25? Mike Garcia won’t thank you, but we will. And so will America!
And remember – if you adopt Richard or Carlos, you’re helping defeat bonus traitors too! In 2022, every single Democrat we register in North Carolina will help us take the Senate seat Richard Burr is leaving open. And every Dem in Florida will help us beat Governor Ron DeSantis as well as Senator Marco Rubio!
FLIP FORT WORTH PHONE BANKS
Register Dems in this key flippable mayoral race on May 1 – help us flip Fort Worth! Every Dem we register here helps us flip Texas House seats and boot anti-masker Gov. Greg Abbott in 2022!
CALL AZ VOTERS TO GET SENATOR SINEMA
TO REFORM THE FILIBUSTER
To preserve our democracy, we must reform the filibuster and pass the for the People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. Senator Sinema is publicly opposed to filibuster reform. Get her constituents to persuade her otherwise!
ADOPT-A-TRAITOR PHONE BANKS
Register Dems in districts whose representatives supported overturning the Biden/Harris election victory, and flip those seats blue! We’re targeting traitors in California, Florida, North Carolina, and Texas!
