Demcast US House Recommendations

Demcast is a civil, fact-based and grassroots-led conversation that is free of profit motive, where digital tools and social platforms are harnessed to maximize the connectivity, coordination & impact of the grassroots activist community. Check out their latest recommendations!

The Good News:

At the end of the 2nd quarter (June 30th), Democrats in the most critical US House & Senate races across the country were out-fundraising their Republican opponents!

The Bad News:

Democrats in five key US House races are significantly trailing their GOP opponents in terms of cash-on-hand (by a more than 2-to-1 margin). These are all TOSS-UP seats that could decide the balance of the House next term.

The Solution:

Let’s support these key Democrats who are farthest behind in fundraising! For people looking for the most strategic way to donate in 2022, giving to this fund is a smart option.

As you can see in the screen grab from Cook Political Report below, each of these races is a TOSS-UP. We don’t have enough competitive seats to just give up on these!

Your donation to this fund will be equally split between the candidates’ campaigns. DemCast, as the fund’s sponsor, is also included on the donation form. Any resources brought in will be used to help build our amplification power for these candidates online.

As always, you can adjust the amount that goes to each recipient when you donate.

Thanks for donating strategically!
