We Created a Big Blue Tidal Wave
On November 7, 2017, 13 of our 14 candidates won, and one is headed for a recount on a razor thin margin of 10 votes. We flipped the Senate in Washington to turn it into a Democratic trifecta state, and we are within striking distance of parity in the Virginia House of Delegates. Democrats also swept statewide races: Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General in Virginia and Governor in New Jersey. This is a big, beautiful, blue tidal wave—and we are going to ride it straight into 2018.
You proved that the Sister District model works. All told, we raised over $350,000 in small-dollar cash donations, another $350,000 in partnership with allied organizations, hit 30k doors, made 80k phone calls, wrote 40,000 postcards, and sent 185,000 text messages.
But there’s no time to rest, and we’re already at work for 2018. We will support a portfolio of races with the strategic goals of (1) flipping Republican-held legislative chambers blue; (2) holding on to (and expanding Democratic control of) chambers with fragile Democratic majorities; and (3) gaining seats in currently unflippable but badly gerrymandered states. We are so grateful for your support so far, can you help us kickstart 2018?
