It's Paying Off
112 DAYS UNTIL THE NOVEMBER 8 ELECTION Just sayin' . . . Happy Tuesday, Activists! We hope your week is off to a good start. We want to take a minute to point out that after all of our calls and emails, President Biden has withdrawn his plan to nominate the anti-abortion Chad Meredith to a federal judgeship in Kentucky. This is a big win and shows our outrage over this nomination made a big difference. Congratulations! We have plenty for you to do to great voters out on November 8. Let's get to it.

Even as Democrats work to expand our rights, the threat that they could be overturned by the Supreme Court looms large. We must expand the court after Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell conspired to pack it for generations to come. The only way to re-legitimize the court is to expand it. 1. Contact our Senators and tell them to vote YES on the Markey Court Expansion Bill. 2. Call your Representative and tell them to pass Representative Mondaire Jones's House version of the Senate bill.
