Today’s Action: Flip. The. Senate!

2020 is FINALLY behind us! But we still have one big unanswered question as to what kind of year awaits us.

With four days until Georgia determines control of the US Senate, we can and must do our parts to determine exactly what kind of year 2021 (to start!) will be. The good news is, our efforts are working, so we cannot afford to let up now.

We’ll celebrate next week. Right now, we MUST win the Senate! 

If we cannot win the Senate next week, Mitch McConnell will be just as much a roadblock for Biden’s agenda as he has been for House Democrats. And he won’t mind at all if we get nothing done for the American people the next two years.

Georgia’s Senate candidates, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, are fantastic Democrats for the state and fully capable of beating the Trump-chump incumbents. But voters will need your encouragement to battle the raging suppression that the GOP is bringing, still scalding from their loss of the presidency and making this last effort to block our goals.

Let’s put 2020 behind us and ring in the new year right: with the ability to enact a progressive agenda in 2021.

Sign up for a two-hour shift this weekend to Get Out The Vote in Georgia!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition telling Republicans to put country over party and condemn Trump’s made-for-TV coup, and get your copy of the delightful “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening)” by Pantsuit Politics hosts, Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A. Silvers, a fun read to help us cope with the aftermath of a post-Trump America.
