GET MITCH OR DIE TRYING

For a bill to become a law, it must go through the Senate (so says the Constitution and School House Rock). But today, a man who calls himself “The Grim Reaper” has made it his life’s work to ensure that not a single piece of progressive legislation will ever land on the desk of a Democratic president. 


His name is Mitch McConnell, and he sucks. 


Since becoming Majority Leader in 2015, McConnell has stolen a seat on the Supreme Court, tried to take health care away from 20 million Americans, and stopped the Senate from doing anything that isn't confirming extreme right wing judges to lifetime appointments (128 and counting!)


But here’s the good news: Mitch could lose his current job in 2020. He’s up for re-election, and more importantly, his party is defending 22 Senate seats, and they only control the Senate by 3. 


This is our chance to Get Mitch or Die Trying. If Democrats take the majority away from him,  we might actually see the day when Congress passes laws that protect voting rights, combat climate change, guarantee health care, and protect a woman's right to choose. And maybe, just maybe, we can send Mitch back to Kentucky for good. 


What? Crazier things have happened! Help do your part by donating to the eventual Democratic nominee in all 10 seats we need to flip (and one we’re protecting, i.e. Alabama). Here’s our sort-of-scientific ranking:


Don’t Fuck It Up (Tier One) - These are the most winnable seats for Democrats in 2020.

- Arizona

- Colorado

- Maine


Come Back Kids (Tier Two) - Democrats lost these seats in 2014, but we have a shot at getting them back in 2020. 

- Iowa

- North Carolina


So...Close... (Tier Three) - Stacey Abrams and Beto O’Rourke showed us that these states are about ready to go blue. 

- Georgia

- Texas


Long Shots (Tier Four) - Crazier things have happened, and if Democrats have an amazing year, these seats could also be in play. 

- Alaska

- Kentucky

- South Carolina


Don’t forget about Doug - We also need to protect our man in Alabama, Sen. Doug Jones. 


These are all subject to change as we get closer to the election, and we’ll let you know when they do!
