People ask me all the time 1) What is Indivisible National doing for the Midterms? 2) How can we help in other states before the primaries?
Both are excellent questions- we all know that early money and support are crucial for candidates to win. And I hope you know that YOU are Indivisible, one of the many members nationwide that gives this organization strength and power.
I’m excited to announce that Indivisible’s latest initiative “Give NO Ground,” will fight for our slim majorities in the House and the Senate. They don’t agree with the “accepted wisdom” in the media that Democrats will lose the midterms. Together we already beat an attempted coup by working for THE LANDSLIDE and flipped the Senate by electing Black and Jewish Senators from Georgia in a run-off election. So, if we can do that, WE CAN DO THIS.
“Give NO Ground” will protect incumbent Senator Warnock and seven other inumbent House members: Katie Porter (CA-45), Mike Leven (CA-49), Lucy McBath (GA-06), Lauren Underwood (IL-15), Andy Kim (NJ-03), and Matt Cartwright (PA-08). These legislators have been working hard for an inclusive recovery – and the MAGAs will be running nasty campaigns against them. CNN and Forbes breathlessly report that Progressives aren’t nutjobs after all and will support incumbent democrats (I’m paraphrasing…).
How will we win? Indivisible is using an “all of the above” strategy- phonebanking, texting, writing, door knocking, town halls, national advertising etc. Donations to this program will fund a rapid reponse fund to get action where it is needed, when it is needed. I’m super excited about their plan to connect Indivisibles in safe blue areas to these at risk seats in their “adopt-a-district” program. We will need to work hard, just as we did to defeat the former guy’s illegal actions. I personally can’t wait to get started.
