Crunch Time

This is it: the last weekend before the most important midterm election of our lifetimes. I deeply appreciate all of you who have supported our tremendous California Democratic House candidates and PAC for a Change’s work to help them take back Congress. If you have any time or money left to contribute to the cause, please visit our candidate pages here and sign up to help them get out the vote. You won’t regret it. We can do this.

Can You Believe?

Can you believe Lindsey Graham saying, “If you’re a Republican and you’re not excited about voting, you’re legally dead”? We saw Graham’s idea of being excited during the Kavanaugh hearing, and it wasn’t pretty.

Can you believe the Interior Department had to warn its staff not to dress up as Trump for Halloween? Soon Interior Secretary Zinke may be dressed as a jailbird, but that’s another story.

Can you believe Trump made the Pittsburgh massacre all about himself by claiming the “far-left media” used it against him? What else did you expect?

They Said It – Republicans Outside Congress Stand Up to Trump

“If you’re as sick and tired as I am of being sick and tired about what’s going on, vote against all Republicans. Every single one. That’s the only message they will understand.” 

– Max Boot, conservative columnist

Hits and Misses – the week’s best and worst moves

Hit of the Week: Native Americans’ valiant efforts to get out the vote despite the North Dakota secretary of state’s efforts to suppress it by changing residency requirements just before the election. 

Miss of the Week: Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s last-minute cancellation of his final debate with Stacey Abrams. Coupled with his own voter suppression efforts, this move makes it clear that Kemp can’t face Georgia’s voters and doesn’t want to hear from them.

Hot House Race of the Week

The race is red hot in CA-25. Katie Hill had been running ahead of Rep. Steve Knight in recent polling, but this week’s New York Times live poll has Knight up by 4 points. This is going to be a fight to the finish. If you have a little time or money to spare, you can make a big difference. Click here to find out more about Katie Hill and help her campaign.
