Goal thermometer

While Republicans in D.C. tend to dominate the news, their counterparts in state capitols have quietly spent years pushing the same malign agenda that coddles the rich and screws everyone else. Often with far too little attention, they’ve eviscerated worker protections, attacked women’s reproductive rights, made voting harder for communities of color, cut funding for education, allowed roads and bridges to fall into disrepair, and slashed taxes on the wealthy.


And then there's the original sin of politics: gerrymandering. By drawing distorted districts that entrench their grip on power, state Republicans ensure they have a free hand to advance their extremist policies and, at the same time, keep their counterparts safely ensconced in Washington. It’s a double win for the GOP, and lose-lose for voters.


But this year, we have a singular opportunity to thwart the Republican plot against the states. Powered by intense progressive enthusiasm and disgust with Donald Trump, Democrats are on offense—and it’s not just Congress we have in our sights. Republicans are defending almost three quarters of the 36 governorships up for election in November, and many of those are vulnerable. Win these, and we can not only bring Republican legislation to a halt, we can start to roll back their worst excesses.


And in some states, we can do one better: We can stop the GOP from gerrymandering again.


Please give $1 to each of these Democrats running for governor to end GOP gerrymandering and roll back Republican extremism.
