Sometimes, the best defense is a good offense.
Democrats are heading into a difficult midterm defending a very narrow majority in the U.S. House. Republicans need to flip just five seats to take control, and we're defending a lot of vulnerable members.
But that's only part of the story. Thanks to Republican retirements, the continued defection of suburban voters from the GOP, and unexpected Democratic successes in redistricting, there's a whole host of districts where Democrats can go on offense and flip seats from red to blue.
These are the sorts of opportunities Daily Kos has always prioritized, and which you've always responded to with such enthusiasm. These races not only give us the chance to stick it to the GOP, they offer us greater bang for the buck, since challengers invariably don't have access to the kinds of resources that incumbents do.
We've identified 10 different races where our people-powered donations can make the most difference. These are all seats where Republicans are on defense, and they’re also districts that, under the new lines, Joe Biden would have carried in 2020.
Can you give $1 now to turn each of these GOP House seats blue?
Here’s our complete target list:
|Eastern Phoenix and suburbs
|Southern Central Valley
|Northern Los Angeles suburbs
|Western Orange County
|Northern Denver suburbs
|Southern Raleigh suburbs
|Eastern Long Island
|Grand Rapids area
|Southern New Mexico
If we can win across this battleground, then we can vastly improve our odds of holding our House majority and ensuring that President Biden gets at least two more years to enact his agenda.
Primaries are still underway in these districts, but fortunately, our partners at ActBlue have made it possible for us to get involved right now via their nominee funds. These funds hold all donations in escrow until each state holds its primary. The money collected is then given in one fell swoop to the Democratic nominee in each race—giving them, if we do our part, a huge injection of resources just as they start their general election campaigns to beat their Republican opponents.
Please donate $1 now to each of these 10 races where Democrats can flip Republican seats from red to blue!
