Moments ago, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that the House of Representatives will begin impeachment proceedings against President Trump. As new allegations surface about Trump’s illegal dealings with the former Soviet Union, many of us continue to ask how low is too low (still no end in sight).
Trust me, I want him gone as much as you do. But with the Senate still in the hands of Republicans, and impeachment historically unpopular, there’s no guarantee these proceedings will lead to him being removed from office. With chaos and instability at the federal level, we must re-commit to building lasting Democratic power the only surefire way: by electing Democrats up and down the ballot.
But the reality is that Donald Trump’s presidency has brought out the best in so many of us. I personally see it every day in our Sister District community, and I want to take this moment to remind you, and myself, of the power we have when we come together.
Let’s re-commit to the most immediate way we can help fix our democracy: getting Democrats elected in Virginia, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Please contribute $20.19 to our efforts right now.
Our volunteers have been working tirelessly all year. Here are just a few of the ways that our teams have inspired me in 2019:
Each of our 90+ volunteer teams and affiliates are matched with 2-3 sister races. This year alone, they have given our campaigns the following boost.
We target strategic “last chance” races that are the final opportunity for Democrats to win power before redistricting in 2021. We could flip Virginia completely blue and we must end voter suppression and gerrymandering in Mississippi and Louisiana.
We’re not waiting, and we’re not holding anything back this election cycle.
Thank you for being part of this movement. Let’s keep at it!
Rita and the entire SDP Team
