Two weeks. Can you believe it? We’ve been building to this for 2 years.

Two years ago we didn’t know @ElissaSlotkin @sharicedavids @HarleyRouda @KatieHill4CA @GinaOrtizJones or @ColinAllredTX.

But now we do. These folks are our rescue team. Our last line of defense. /1
Who would have thought a former beloved teacher would mount a neck-and-neck challenge to Jim Jordan. @Janet4OH did. That’s 2018.
Who would’ve thought a small but mighty @LizForIndiana would win the hearts and minds of burly tradesmen with overwhelming union support in #IN09? That’s 2018.
Who could have foreseen the epic battle of good and evil that would emerge in the Georgia governor’s race, with the principled fighter @staceyabrams going up against the most blatantly corrupt vote rigger in America, Brian Kemp? That’s 2018.
In 2016 I had never even heard of @BetoORourke. Yeah. I admit it. Now? I’d be shocked if he isn’t President someday. That’s 2018.
There’s @JenniferWexton. @AmyMcGrathKY. @JamieforOregon. @Deb4CongressNM. @LUnderwood630. @ShireenGhorbani. @mjhegar. @marygayscanlon. @laurenbaer. @SusanPalmerOH...

Powerful women who have stepped forward and said, “No. Uh-uh. We veto this bullsh*t”. That’s 2018.
We’ve had marches and media whiplash. We’ve had a constant barrage of lies. We’ve had conspiracies, denials and manipulations. We’ve had postcard parties and propaganda flying left and right. That’s 2018.
But my biggest takeaway is you. Not our awesome candidates or our belligerent “president”. Not the marches or the media frenzy. My takeaway is the hope for a better tomorrow that has driven so much GOOD. Active good. Good trouble.
YOU are thinking about and talking about how to build a better country. How to restore order. Save the environment. Protect the vulnerable. And that gives me the most hope of all.
Whatever happens on November 6th, I know we’ll form a united front. We’ll be battle tested and ready to take on the next challenge. I’m so thankful for that. I have faith in you. In us.

But. For the sake of all of us...let’s win. And let’s win big. For our kids. //
