Scary fact:

FiveThirtyEight's poll numbers on the recall (in an article ominously titled "Gavin Newsom Has Reason to Worry") are a blinking red light. It's not that Newsom doesn't have support, it's that REPUBLICANS ARE MORE ENERGIZED
We need to get Dems fired up NOW. The most important part of that is YOUR VOTE
Second most important is your getting friends, family, and others to vote
Keep Republicans from stealing California

Election Day is over at last!

Thank you so much to everyone who voted, volunteered, and donated

 

We know everyone just wants to collapse as we wait for the inauguration, but we have to tell you —

your help is very much still needed!



We've found that sending postcards is one of the most effective methods of contacting voters, and we are determined to help contact every Democratic and left-leaning Independent voter in Georgia to get them to the polls on January 5, 2021

$10 will fund 22 postcards

Donate here, or sign up to join the effort


Uphill battle for Senate continues

 

Yes, it's a long shot, if enough of us pitch in. Otherwise the chance is nil

So please consider donating to or working for Jon Ossoff and/or Raphael Warnock

Ossoff: https://electjon.com/

Warnock: https://warnockforgeorgia.com/

to boost their chances in an upcoming January 5, 2021 runoff

 

This is our best hope for the possibility of being able to make major legislative progress these next four years!

 

PPDC donated an additional emergency $1000 to each campaign on Nov. 5
