A smart and talented and very politically-motivated young friend of mine has been actively collecting a volunteer contact list and sending out a weekly email with action items.
If you’re anything like me, you’re looking for more answers to the question, “What Can I Do?” so I thought I would share the email here with my Qt3 friends each week.
Within the next 10 days, Michigan and Wisconsin will begin sending out absentee ballots. North Carolina has already sent out 600,000 absentee ballots yesterday, which means… we are officially IN the 2020 election. This is really happening!
As always, if you know anybody else who might be interested in getting weekly small, easy calls to action to make a difference and help us win this election, send me their info or send them this LINK to fill out their details.
This week’s call to action is another fundraising effort where every dollar will go a long way. In 2018, Democrats flipped 12 (!!!) State House seats in Texas. This year, we only need to flip 9 more seats to flip the chamber blue, and Democrats are working hard to make that happen. Texas is one of the most gerrymandered states in the country, so gaining control of the State House will mean Democrats get a seat at the table for 2021 redistricting, which can effectively nullify Republican gerrymandering in Texas for the next decade.
This Fund will split funds between ten Democratic Texas State House candidates who are running in the closest races to flip GOP-held seats - these are all districts that Beto won in his 2018 Senate bid, so they are full of voters who are ready for change. Please consider matching my $20 donation - you can donate to the fund HERE.
If everyone on this mailing list donates $20, we can raise over $3,000 for these candidates - and in local state legislature and other down-ballot races, every dollar goes a long way!
