● Put Cheri Beasley in the Senate and prevent a supermajority in NC ● Battle for democracy in PA: On the phone and on the ground
Forget polls. Ignore pundits. Turnout is everything.
We're sending this newsletter out on Thursday rather than Saturday so you can organize the final weekend before the election.
We know you're getting an overwhelming number of emails and texts with frantic requests. The newsletter compiles Swing Blue Alliance 's recommendations for actions that are Additive, Important, Measurable, Helpful and Impactful.
Get to NH if you can. Maggie Hassan, Chris Pappas, and other NH Dems are in razor-close races.
It's measurable! Personal canvassing increases voter turnout by the margins Dems need to win.
It's additive, helpful and impactful! Meeting voters where they are can have an impact that lasts beyond this election, and we have partnered with Organize NH to identify the districts where our help will have the most impact.
Fetterman will recover from his stroke. Oz will always be a fraud.
There are many tight down-ballot races in Pennsylvania. Informing voters about these local candidates is a great way to turn Dems out for the higher-profile races. SBA recommends the local PA elections below, where your help can have the most impact.
Dan Williams and Johanny Cepeda-Freytiz
Join fellow Dems at Sister District MA-RI to help two dynamic candidates for the Pennsylvania State Legislature. Dan Williams is a pastor and strong union supporter whose seat is a must-hold for Democrats. Johanny Cepeda-Freytiz is a community activist, entrepreneur, and City Councilwoman, who has a good chance flipping a seat blue if we can turn out voters on her behalf.
Congresswoman Houlahan, who represents PA's 6th district, has fought to improve supply chains, secure aid for schools, protect health care, and deliver for small businesses. She is in a tight race with Republican extremist Guy Ciarrocchi, who has spent his career crusading against rights for women and the LGBTQ community.
Join the Houlahan campaign to call Dems who requested vote-by-mail ballots but have not yet returned them. Or join a text bank to turn out voters.
Successful get-out-the-vote campaigns are critical in these days before the election. Swing Blue Alliance leader Susan Labandibar, who temporarily transplanted herself to Reading, PA to be a field organizer for the PA Dems, recommends Turn PA Blue phone banks as particularly helpful and impactful.
