Today’s Action: Two weeks left to flip the Senate!

Two weeks from today, Georgia voters will decide who controls the Senate for the next two years — either Democrats who have been fighting the grim reaper to support working families and build a more equitable society, or Republicans who would quite literally rather let Americans starve during a pandemic than tax billionaires.

This is isn’t rocket science. 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.
