We did it! Thanks to your activism, Republicans' attempt to build a bulwark against democracy has been defeated.

And what an important victory! Wisconsin voters have thwarted Republicans' hopes of using the WI court to overturn the 2024 election. They have made it possible for the most gerrymandered state in the country to have fair election maps in the future. They have stood up for abortion rights. They have roundly rejected Republican extremism.

Swing Blue volunteers made thousands of phone calls, speaking with nearly 7,000 Wisconsin voters. We sent 57,000 postcards to voters. We donated to the WI Dems and grassroots organizations that made this victory possible. We knocked on doors in Wisconsin and built relationships for the long haul. 

"Your impact had a ripple effect," writes Alex Whittaker, WisDems Regional Organizing Coordinator for Southeast WI. "...I see hope in the eyes of Dem volunteers. I hear it in conversations. There's a growing belief that we can win and enough WI voters are seeing MAGAism for what it is. Time will tell but, for now, we're dreaming big dreams again." 


What's Next?

As we celebrate the wins achieved by grassroots organizing, we’re setting our sights even higher.  Voters have a right to make their choices based on a balanced discussion of policy issues, far from the Right-wing media disinformation machine. 

Republicans know that their only path to winning is ginning up fears with lies and discouraging voter participation. 

We are not sitting out the battle for truth and democracy. Join us for two events this month as we organize to fight the MAGA media machine.

Simon Rosenberg at April Frontline Update

Political strategist Simon Rosenberg understood that predictions of a "red wave" in 2022 were misleading and fueled by Republican propaganda. Now, he's spearheading an all-out effort to win the information wars and take down the MAGA disinformation machine. For practical strategy with a strong dash of hope, don't miss the April Swing Blue Frontline Update.
