Some Bright Spots in Virginia - 2021
Wins for Wendy Gooditis, Kelly Fowler and Rodney Willett, whom we supported with substantial digital support, and in the case of Wendy, over 4,000 canvassing doors.
Another bright spot is in Stafford County where we canvassed extensively and weighed in heavily at key polls on election day, encouraging voters with Democratic Sample Ballots, emphasizing down-ballot races. Now a coalition of Dems and Dem-Leaning Independents won Board of Supervisors control and a key School Board race
However, disappointing narrow losses for Josh Cole, Nancy Guy, and Alex Askew, who received substantial digital support and in the case of Josh and Nancy, substantial canvassing support as well.Our 5 challengers lost as well.
2017 Virginia. We actively supported key House of Delegate races across the state and helped to almost flip the the House. We won 15 seats, going from 66-R, 34-D, to 51-R, 49-D. Even though that did not reach a Democratic majority, there were enough supportive Republicans to pass Medicaid expansion.
2018 U.S. House Races. Aiming for a decisive win, we supported 12 "sweet spot" House races early on. That contributed significantly to the decisive 40 seat win that served as a huge major progressive force and restraint on Trump and Trumpism.
2019 Virginia. Again focusing on key VA House and Senate faces, with early money and strong voter outreach, we contributed significantly to turning the entire VA legislature Blue!
Candidate Selection. We support "Sweet Spot" races -
Not those most likely or little likely to win, but with a decent shot to win. We connect with them and monitor them over time and shift support when it makes sense.
Our Efforts in the GA Runoffs were Rewarded!
Our support for the Georgia Alliance for Progress (GAP) paid off handsomely, especially with our Priority of Canvassing
GAP partners knocked over 10 Million Doors!
With almost 3 Million doorstep conversations!
Our financial support was over $211,000.
Our support to NAACP in South GA also Paid Off
Our aim was to cut Perdue and Loeffler margin in 15 red counties, where virtually no one else was working.
It worked! Perdue's margin was reduced by 2.3% and over 13,500 votes vs the general election.
Ossoff's margin averaged 0.7% better than Biden's.
Our financial support was $78,000.
