In under 2 years, @runforsomething has recruited nearly 20k young progressives who want to run. We’ve elected nearly 200 people to local office in 40 states - 56% women, 49% people of color, 15% LGBTQ, ages 19-40. We’ve spent ~$2.25m to do it from >12k donors.
Our candidates have flipped state legislative seats red to blue in: CT, FL, IN, MA, MI, MN, NC, NY, PA, TX, VA & VA. 🔥🔥
We’ve taken out the chair of the Illinois GOP, a racist sheriff in Minnesota, and a multitude of absolute trash Republicans across the country. We’ve made the GOP spend time & money in races they would have preferred not to - even when our folks lose, the process makes us better.
Our alumni includes legislators who expanded Medicaid to 400k Virginians and the new Lieutenant Governor-elect of Michigan, among others.
TL;DR: The @runforsomething team kicks ass. And we want to keep kicking ass, in an even bigger way, for the next 2,4, and 10 years. That will require you me help. Join us and run, help, or give.
