Today’s Action: Ruin Mitch McConnell’s day…flip the Kentucky Governor’s seat

We have an opportunity to make life very difficult for Mitch McConnell. And that’s the kind of opportunity we love.

In less than two weeks, Kentuckians head to the polls to elect their governor, and Democrat Andy Beshear has a real shot at beating one of the most conservative, detested governors in America: Matt Bevin.

Despite Kentucky’s reputation as a deep red state, polls show 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…and pave the way for a Kentucky that votes out Mitch McConnell in 2020!

Bevin’s name might sound familiar – he’s spent his time in office insulting teachers, taking healthcare away from his most vulnerable constituents, and advocating for “prayer patrols” to fight gun violence.

Getting Andy Beshear elected means we have a real chance to move Kentucky forward with expanded Medicaid, fully funded public schools, and good-paying jobs. It also means sending Mitch a message that Democrats can win statewide in Kentucky.

Sign up for a phonebank shift to elect Democrat Andy Beshear as Governor of Kentucky! If there’s one thing that’s going to make Mitch McConnell nervous leading up to his 2020 re-election campaign, this is it.

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition calling on Congress to investigate Trump’s shady scheme to host the G7 at his own property, 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.
