Today’s Action: All hands on deck for November elections

November elections kick off next week, and Democrats in these traditionally red states have a big blue possibility…but they need our help to achieve victory. Pick your favorite race, or pick them all!


Make Mitch McConnell’s life difficult in his home state! Polls show Republican incumbent Matt Bevin locked in a tight race with the popular Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear, and the Washington Post ranks it the most likely governor’s seat to flip to Democrats this year. Sign up to phonebank to flip Kentucky’s Governor seat!


If Jennifer Riley Collins wins Mississippi’s Attorney General position, she’ll be the first Black woman to win a statewide election since Reconstruction, and the first-ever woman Attorney General. Riley Collins is a civil rights lawyer, and could not be more qualified to lead the way in the deep south on civil rights, voting rights, healthcare, and abortion access. Sign up to phonebank for Mississippi Democrats and elect Jennifer Riley Collins!


With Trump’s recent all-time-low approval rating in the state, seizing complete Democratic control in the Southern state has never been closer! Flipping state legislature to Democrats would help us overturn the second-most restrictive voter ID laws in the nation and empower multitudes of Virginians to exercise their right to make their voices heard…with the added benefit of adding about four more Democrats in the House of Representatives! Sign up with SwingLeft to phonebank to flip Virginia!

Whether you choose one election and dig deep, or split your time between the four campaigns, every phone call you make moves us a little closer to historic Democratic victories in unlikely places!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on Facebook to stop helping Trump spread lies in ads, 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.
