Received this e-mail from the Progressive Change Campaign Committee:
The election experts at The Cook Political Report just UPGRADED ratings for Democrats chances to win control over 8 state legislative chambers in states such as Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Michigan. This was their second major upgrade since this summer.
If progressives win back just a handful of state legislative seats, Democrats can take back power in multiple absolutely critical state legislative chambers. That can put a stop to Republican gerrymandering and voter suppression in those states.
And, it can lead to states adopting a $15 minimum wage, expanding healthcare, setting ambitious clean-energy goals, expanded childcare, and much more.
We’re coming down to the wire, and the Cook Report says many of these races will be neck-and-neck.
By helping these state legislative candidates Get Out The Vote in their districts, we’re also helping getting out the vote for the Biden-Harris ticket and U.S. Senate candidates in key states.
And, we’re electing future Democratic leaders (remember Illinois State Senator Barack Obama?) and making sure they’re progressives.
It’s a win-win-win!
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
