Our next GOTV virtual Zoom meeting will be TOMORROW, Tuesday, August 18, starting at 7:00 p.m. Our GOTV team (Andria Thomas and Matt LaFortune) has selected the two Senate races we'll be supporting: Theresa Greenfield, who is challenging Senator Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Jaime Harrison, who is challenging Senator Lindsey Graham in South Carolina. Per the Cook Political Report, the Greenfield race is now officially a toss up and winning it will be critical to the Democrats taking the Senate this fall. The Harrison race is a bit more of a long-shot, but we're hopeful we can help move that seat into the Dem column, too. As with all of our chosen candidates, Ms. Greenfield and Mr. Harrison publicly support DC Statehood. No Donation Without Representation!
Tomorrow night, we'll be focusing on the Greenfield Senate race, and we'll focus on the Harrison Senate race in September. Details and RSVP for the Greenfield virtual event are at https://www.mobilize.us/dcdemsward6/event/293212/.
We're also still working to support the re-election campaigns of Rep. Elaine Luria (VA-02) and Rep. Abigail Spanberger (VA-07), both of whom were elected with our help in 2018. Both first-term representatives, who also publicly support DC Statehood, are in tough re-election fights, so we have the opportunity to have a major impact on them retaining their seats so the Democrats can protect - or even possibly expand - their House majority this fall. These are some of the postcards we've already completed for them.
Need addresses? Email Matt LaFortune at [email protected] We still have addresses for Spanberger to be claimed, and we have a new batch for Greenfield ready to distribute.
