WHAT’S UP THIS WEEK?
1. IT’S ON LIKE DONKEY KONG
Early voting in Virginia is super important this week. Polls are showing a very close race, and if we don’t get more people out to vote for Terry McAuliffe and downballot dems, Youngkin could win.
Here’s a fun graphic that shows Glenn Youngkin morphing into Trump(kin). H/T Democracy Labs for this. You can find the actual morphing here.
TLDR: Youngkin is another Trump, and voting for him would reverse the progress the Commonwealth has achieved under Democratic leadership.
“Trump is using the Virginia gubernatorial election to carve a pathway for his comeback in 2024. He’s endorsed the Republican challenger Glenn Youngkin 6 times.”
“Time is running out to vote early. Stop paying attention to the polls and work like we’re three points down. Tell all your friends to get out and be voters!”
2. IT’S INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK!
All the work we’ve been doing to talk about what is actually in the Build Back Better Act is starting to find traction. MSNBC has begun a series talking about what’s actually in the bill, and here’s the first installment on climate.
TLDR: We’re still not sure what will be in the final bill, but we need to keep talking about how it will make Americans’ lives more livable.
Sample Messages: T
The Build Back Better Act will provide us the freedom to make a good living, have good care and education for our kids, affordable meds for our family, and clean air and water for all of us.
I receive money every month for my kid’s expenses like new shoes and long pants for winter. If the bill doesn’t pass, that money goes away, and it’ll feel like a new tax on my child. Pass the Build Back Better Act so I can keep that money for my kid’s needs.
Thank you also to More Perfect Democracy graphic artists and the artists at IntoAct!on.
