Turn turmoil into action. Meet key candidates fighting to safeguard our rights and plunge right into the action at the same time.
Together We Elect is launching a Meet the Candidates Series. Each event will feature a candidate whose race is key to keeping and expanding Democratic representation in the U.S. House and Senate. Each event also will include an action so you can stop our country from careening back to the 1920s.
Some candidates are well-known. Others are not. But all are waging tough campaigns that are nonetheless winnable, as long as we all pitch in.
The Numbers, They Are a Changin’
The latest polls tell us that this midterm may not follow the historical trend. Overturning Roe v. Wade has changed the equation. Now more Democrats are saying they are planning to vote in November.
“With the midterm elections less than five months away, the decision by SCOTUS has sent shockwaves through the electorate,” says Lee M. Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. “Men are +12 points and women are +18 points more likely to support congressional candidates who pledge to codify the protections of Roe v. Wade. Digging deeper, 63% of women, including 74% of suburban women, are also concerned that the Court’s decision is a harbinger of things to come.”
We need to build on that momentum and help those candidates who will enable a foolproof majority to codify reproductive and other civil rights.
First Meet the Candidates Tuesday
You can sign up for the first event on Tuesday, July 12. U.S. Congressman and Senate candidate Tim Ryan will be there to speak about the working people he has served for nearly a decade in Ohio as well his plans as a senator. After we meet Congressman Ryan, we all will have a chance to make phone calls to Ohio.
