Today’s Action: Get out the Vote to Flip. The. Senate!

Get out the Vote weekend is here. With 3 million Georgians already casting their vote, Tuesday is the culmination of an election that will determine not just the winner of two Senate seats, but control of the Senate.

Will Mitch McConnell be Leader blocking every good piece of legislation on Capitol Hill (including $2,000 relief checks) or will President Biden be able to work with a Democratic Congress that works for the American people. And even with Trump telling his own people not to vote, we know millions will. We only win if we get our people out.

It all comes down to the next four days.

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.

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

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on prosecutors to charge Trump and his accomplices for their crimes after he leaves office, and get your copy of the delightful “I Think You’re Wrong (But I’m Listening)” by Pantsuit Politics hosts, Sarah Stewart Holland and Beth A.
