Big news tonight. I'm proud to share this first incarnation of our spreadsheet of Resistance candidates for use in the 2018 election.

Those of you who support us on Patreon have directly funded the staff time (which has been hundreds of hours since we announced this effort).
A few words of disclaimer: please do not take this spreadsheet as an endorsement of any kind. In some cases, we've included multiple phenomenal candidates who are running for the same seat.
Please take this list as being for for informational and organizing purposes only-- though please also know that we have spent a mountain of time vetting every candidate on it to make sure their positions are aligned with the Resistance and with justice and equality for all.
In some cases, we have been in direct communication with candidates themselves to make sure that they're aligned with Resistance values.
As well, please know that where we couldn't ascertain a candidate's position on choice, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, women's rights, immigrant rights, ability rights, or any other critical issue of importance to the Resistance, we have opted not to include the candidate.
Please know that we have a list of candidates that we are still vetting. We will continue to update this list as we move toward the primaries and November.

We really do encourage you to research every candidate on your own by your state. Get informed! Get knowledgeable!
Get out the vote! Donate! And please do volunteer to support candidates you care about.

FINALLY: two things to pay very close attention to, as follows.
TEXAS: your primary is March 6th, with voting opening on February 20th. Please educate yourself on the candidates and their positions and VOTE.

PENNSYLVANIA: there is a special election in PA-18 on March 13th. Please give some attention to Conor Lamb.
If you live in the few states where no candidates are listed here, please do submit your preferred candidates to

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to this effort! Find the candidate sheet here:
