Today’s Action: Flip a House seat on August 7th — phonebank this weekend!

Democrats only need to win 23 seats in the House to flip blue this November. 23 out of 435. And, a whopping 78 of those 435 seats are considered highly competitive swing district possibilities (where Hillary won, or lost by only a little).

This Tuesday, August 7th, is our next big chance at one of those 23 seats. Democrat Danny O’Connor is running in Ohio’s 12th District, a GOP stronghold that hasn’t elected a Democrat since the 80’s, and voted for Trump by 11 points… Except polls show O’Connor in a dead heat with his GOP opponent, thanks to Ohio-voter dissatisfaction with the GOP’s slaughtering of social services.

This is an all-hands-on-deck moment. No matter where you live, join the #BlueWave and help push this House seat over the finish line by volunteering a few hours to phone bank for Danny O’Connor (all from the comfort if your living room).

O’Connor is a fresh voice for Ohio, a lawyer and small-business owner who has dedicated years of work to helping veterans and battling homelessness — a Democrat who wants to expand healthcare, fight for family leave, and protect Social Security and Medicare.

In short, we need him in the House. But to achieve that, O’Connor needs phone bank volunteers to push Ohio Democrats out the door and into polling booths this Tuesday.

Intimidated by phone banking? Don’t be – your calling-list comprises registered Democrats and those who have already expressed interest in the O’Connor campaign. They don’t need to be convinced…they literally just need a reminder to vote.

Join #BlueWave efforts and phone bank for Danny O’Connor this weekend! Sign up to make calls to Ohio Democrats from your own living room.
