The #TopMinion phone bank is the unsung hero of 2022

We made over 1,OOO,OOO calls for Republicans around the country, helping our friends win primaries and general elections

While some of them came up short, I'm confident we'll see them soon

Here's who we called for...

The #TopMinion Phone Bank called all over New York, starting with @claudiatenney in her primary in the new #NY24 district, which she resoundingly won en route to a landslide victory in November

If at first you don't succeed...

@EliseStefanik is a huge supporter of @marcmolinaro, and when her team asked if the #TopMinion Phone Bank could call for him, we did over 5O,OOO calls for him in the #NY19 special

While he came up just short then, he won in November!

We watched 135+ debates so you didn’t have to — and Democrats said some crazy things.

Here are some of the most insane debate moments from Democrats this cycle.

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Angie Craig: “I will never stop standing up for Big Pharma and standing against my constituents!” #MN02
Oregon Democrat Tina Kotek called for "meth stabilization center[s]" in Portland — "in addition to making [full drug decriminalization] work." #ORGov

Gun violence and crime are key issues for voters this cycle – and Democrats are effectively flipping the script by highlighting that it's the MAGA Republican agenda that puts profits for gun manufacturers ahead of public safety that’s responsible.

(h/t @POLITICOPro) 🧵
Last night, @Everytown released a new ad in #WISen highlighting how @RonJohnsonWI has enabled rising violence and new polling that shows the vast majority of Wisconsin voters support stronger gun safety laws that he’s continually opposed.
In #SC01, pediatrician and @MomsDemand vol @AnnieAndrewsMD’s first TV ad shows how gun violence devastates families and erases far too many lives – and yet her opponent @NancyMace votes against bipartisan gun safety bills.

Today is a big day for working families in Oregon. Over 100K Oregonians are seeing their wages ⬆ today, no thanks to @senbetsyjohnson who voted against it.

So, let’s talk about Betsy’s history of siding with corporations over working families 🧵 (1/6)
In 2007, Betsy worked to defeat a bill to provide paid family leave to Oregonians. You heard that right, Betsy worked to block legislation to help Oregonians care for their newborn babies and sick family members. (2/6)
In 2015, Betsy voted against legislation to provide earned sick leave to workers.

I guess Betsy doesn’t believe that workers should be able to take time off work when they’re sick. (3/6)

Debate with 12 Republican candidates for governor hosted by Timber Unity is starting shortly. I’ll share highlights in a thread here. #orgov #orpol
Debate will have eight questions, all about the economy, natural resources and jobs. Because there are so many candidates, they're split into odd and even groups and each group gets four questions with 60 seconds to answer. At the end, candidates can answer a fifth question
Almost done with introductions. Brandon Merritt got some in the crowd to cheer "Let's go, Brandon," which doubles as a cheer for him and an anti-Biden chant.

Huge weekend for Democratic gubernatorial candidates getting major newspaper endorsements. (THREAD WARNING)

2. @gazettedotcom: "Hubbell is the best choice to dramatically change course at the Statehouse."
In #FLGov, Andrew Gillum got the endorsement of the @orlandosentinel and the @MiamiHerald. He's now been endorsed by the 4 biggest newspapers in Florida.
