Democrats won the day in Alabama, Virginia, and elsewhere in Nov. and Dec. 2017,
thanks to grassroots action from people like you.
Many of you made calls or texted in support of campaigns across the country, including the big one,
electing Doug Jones and keeping Roy Moore from swaggering around on the Senate floor!
We can restore sanity and decency to America,
