We have said it before, the best way to advance our progressive values is to elect progressive candidates in 2018. The problem is that Democrats are not showing up in one-third of Congressional races. In fact, in 166 Congressional districts in 2016 the Democratic nominee raised less than $155K. By comparison, the Democratic nominee averaged $1.5 million in the other 269 districts. You cannot win if you don’t play. That’s why we are partnering with It Starts Today, with a mission of funding every Democratic nominee in every district and every state in 2018.
There are 468 House and Senate seats up for election in 2018, it Starts Today is collecting recurring donations in increments of $4.68 per month. It starts today will evenly divide your contribution amongst each one of the 468 Democratic nominees for Congress in 2018. All-of-us must refuse to cede a single district in 2018.
