Today’s Action: Help flip a House seat in Arizona

This Tuesday, we face our next chance to flip another seat in the House blue! Arizona’s 8th Congressional district is holding a special election on April 24th, and we’ve got Republicans scared.

Democrat Hiral Tipirneni is running in a district that Trump won by 21 percentage points in 2016 — but polls show the race to be a dead heat. If those numbers sound familiar, it’s because they’re similar to Democrat Conor Lamb, who just won a House seat in a Pennsylvania special election in a district that Trump won by 20 points.

Flipping the House isn’t just possible — it’s happening. But it won’t happen on it’s own.

Last month, BuildTheWave.org helped Lamb flip his district by sending 90,000 get-out-the-vote texts in the final weekend. Now, they’re replicating their effort so Tipirneni can do the same on Tuesday.

Can you chip in to help flip this crucial swing district and build the wave today?

You can also volunteer to phone bank no matter where you- and encourage your Phoenix-area family and friends to volunteer in person and VOTE on April 24th!

Tipirneni is an ER doctor and cancer research advocate, with a strong message for supporting Medicare and Social Security. Lesko is a vocal supporter of Trump and the Trump Tax scam, wants to aid Trump’s deportation force, and has supports denying Dreamers citizenship. Tipirneni is the clear progressive choice for the Democratic vote we need in the House.

Right now, we only need to flip 24 seats to win back the House for the first time since 2010. Let’s make it 23.

Give BuildTheWave the support they need to flip another district and volunteer to phone bank from the comfort of your own home today!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to rehire a teacher who was fired for being a lesbian, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
