Flip the House Blue for Abby Finkenauer

Goal thermometer

Flip the House Blue is a political contribution circle raising money for specific Democratic candidates in House races where we believe the candidate has a strong chance of winning. Our goal is to take back majority control of the House in 2018 because we think it is the most likely way we can stop the far right agenda. History suggests the House presents the best opportunity for the party out of power to regain control. In 18 of the last 20 midterm elections, the President’s party has lost an average of 33 seats. In 2018, Democrats need 24 seats to re-take the House majority. In addition, over the last 60 years, the President’s party has lost an average of 14 House seats in midterm elections when their approval rating was above 50%,and an average loss of 36 seats when their approval rating was below that mark. President Trump's job approval rating is hovering in the 30-40% range.

Flip the House members will contribute directly to candidates rather than to a PAC or fund. For 2018, we ask that each member commit to giving $1,000 to each of 5 candidates, for a total of $5,000. Members will be invited to meet these candidates when they attend individual Boston area fundraisers hosted by Flip the House members from February - October 2018.

Our next is Abby Finkenauer (IA 2nd) and we will be hosting her on May 17 from 5:30 - 7:30 in the evening. Location TBD.
