Today’s Action: Take back the House by finding your closest swing district!

The number just keeps going up: 43 House Republicans have now announced they will not defend their seats in the 2018 midterms — far more than any other recent Congress, and over twice the number of Democrats leaving their seats.

And it’s no accident. Trump’s enablers behaved as if no one was watching as they pursued a reckless agenda that enriched their wealthy donors at our expense. But we let them know we were watching and would hold them to account.

Last year, we set the stage for a wave to get us back on a course for stability, reason, and strength. Now, we seal the deal.

There will be 78 highly competitive House elections this year, and we only need to flip 23 of them to win back the House for Democrats. Swing Left is connecting people in areas where they can have an outsized impact immediately. Whether you live in a swing district or not, you can absolutely support the efforts to turn a red seat blue!

Simply click on Swing Left’s connection tool, type in your zip code to find the swing district nearest you, and Swing Left will tell you how to connect with the people laying the groundwork for a big Democratic win in 2018.

The resistance has done an amazing job of holding this regime in check, but stopping the Trump agenda for good means taking Congressional control away from the president’s Republican enablers and returning it to real progressive leaders.

That work is key to everything we’ve been fighting for, and it starts now. Sign up at Swing Left to get your action items for flipping a district near you. Let’s send these crooks packing.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to fire the racist firefighter who spit on a toddler and called him the N-word, and join the Americans demanding Congress protect Dreamers NOW!
