31st Street Swing Left
Winning State Legislatures, the U.S. House, Senate
and the White House
We are motivated, ordinary people in the DC, MD, VA area who came together in early 2017 to win elections. We believe our efforts were highly effective in the Blue Wave in 2017 Virginia, winning the U.S. House in 2018 and in 2019 in winning control of both the Virginia House and Senate.
We are over 500 members. Join us!

2020 "Bottom-Up" 2-Pillar Strategy
in Selected Battleground States
Voter registration through support to effective on-the-ground organizations and selective direct boots-on-the-ground efforts by our members.
Selective state legislature races with potential to flip a legislature, where such local efforts can contribute significantly to help statewide US Senate and Presidency efforts in those states through a “reverse coattails” effect.
State priorities are North Carolina and Pennsylvania and others TBD very selectively, as opportunity arises.
Later in the election cycle we will also engage in more traditional voter outreach, especially canvassing, with an emphasis on low-turnout voters.
We will remain alert to opportunities that may arise for races where our support may provide significant leverage.
