Trump was elected with the support of roughly 1/4 of all eligible voters (almost half of all eligible voters didn't even vote that year.)

If we really want change, we have to get involved & help others see the importance of voting. We must expand the vote.

.@swingleft has focused in past elections on key swing districts to flip them #redtoblue

Now they're focusing on 11 states to win the Senate, the White House, & #redistricting for Democrats.

We can all help whether we're in those states or not. 2/7

After the Supreme Court refused to rule on state gerrymandering cases, we have to flip state legislatures blue to get fair maps. Grassroots is focusing in these key 9 states. Help from anywhere. #EndGerrymandering #FridayFeeling #BlueWave 3/7

Because of you and hard-working candidates, Democrats retook the House with the largest popular vote margin of any party ever, no less!

Here's how we flipped the most Democratic seats since Watergate! (39 and counting)
As the first elected Chair, Ben Ray Luján pounded the pavement the entire cycle, traveling over 52,000 miles through 27 cities and 17 states. He held events or meetings with 93 separate candidates for a total of 151 candidate meetings and events on the road.
We built a battlefield of 111 seats – the largest in over a decade. Our final #RedtoBlue program included:
4️⃣8️⃣ women
2️⃣7️⃣ people under 40
2️⃣1️⃣ diverse candidates
1️⃣9️⃣ veterans and intelligence officers

I’m gonna demystify some terms: Get Out the Vote means volunteers (like us) go and remind people who support our candidate to vote. It’s not debating with GOP voters who hate us, it’s reminding supporters & those likely to support. It’s the only way we win. Knock doors. (1)
Folks psych themselves out of volunteering imagining it’s some big scary thing. It’s actually friendly. If you have social anxiety to the point where it’s triggering to talk to strangers, or you have limited mobility, there are other great ways to help like texting voters (2)
You can volunteer to phone bank from home and text from home via @WorkingFamilies wfp4themany.org or @NewFLMajority newfloridavision.org/out-of-state/. Really friendly and fun. You can even text while you do work if you work from home. It reaches a ton of voters & helps them plan(3)

Paul Ryan’s super PAC is under fire for weaponizing @SpanbergerVA07’s private personal records from her service in the CIA and law enforcement.

She’s not the only candidate that needs your help facing lies from that same super PAC.

Let’s take a look👀

In Colorado, Paul Ryan’s super PAC came after @JasonCrowCO6.

REALITY CHECK: “Republicans know Jason Crow’s service with and for veterans is an asset, so they’re attacking it. If this is the best they’ve got, shame on them.”

In Maine, Paul Ryan’s super PAC came after @golden4congress.

His super PAC’s ad zooms in on Golden’s tattoo to “tie it to his politics” even though his tattoo pays tribute to his tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

What do an FBI arrest, a special prosecutor, insider trading, tax breaks spent on yachts, and not disclosing shady businesses all have in common?

It all stinks of Republican corruption.

Let's take a look 👀
Now that #NY27 GOP Rep. Chris Collins was arrested and indicted on insider trading, his seat in Congress is in play!
