Top GOP leaders skip the queue to get vaccinations ahead of nation’s most vulnerable
Sen. Marco Rubio — who turned 49 this year — and Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Trump’s chief enablers in the Senate, have happily allowed the outgoing president to mismanage our nation’s pandemic response, fighting tooth and nail against Democratic efforts to provide meaningful pandemic financial relief. Unsurprisingly, their early access to critical vaccine doses in short supply did not go over well with everyday Americans.

Today’s Action: Take action in Georgia this week before you take a holiday!

Two weeks and a day until the last two Senate elections decide the fate of our country: either Mitch McConnell blocking every liberal judicial appointment and decent piece of legislation…or one where Democrats can enact a platform that benefits every American.

The difference between those two outcomes is stark. If you volunteered to defeat Trump, your energy now to disempower Mitch McConnell is just as vital. If you didn’t volunteer to defeat Trump, now’s your chance to pitch in – tag in now, where it’s needed most!

We MUST win the Senate! 

Early voting has begun for both Senate run-off elections. But GOP voter suppression has ramped up. Major cuts to early voting sites in certain counties that went for Biden have caused 2+ hour lines and significantly depressed turnout in Democratic, predominantly POC, areas.

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.

Volunteer outreach is the key to beating voter suppression. Commit to at least one volunteer shift this week before taking holiday down-time!

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

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to fire the Chicago cops who covered up the violent arrest of an innocent Black social worker, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
