I'm an enemy of POTUS, VPOTUS, and the privately funded political system that inflicted them upon us.

Thanks Malaysia41, I donated to Thompson through your link, and phonebanked a little too!  He's the dark horse from Kansas... special elections in 3 days!  I hear he's turning out to be a surprise hit, despite being in a ruby-red state, having little or no support from the national or state Democratic party, and no press from nationwide campaigns like flippable and Sister District who focused on Ossoff, whose race was seen as winnable.   The House Republicans have been pouring money into the race at the last minute, and even Pence and Cruz are mobilizing against him.

I've been doing so many things... Fundraising, tabling, phone banking, organizing meetings, going down to Georgia this week to GOTV for Ossoff, who we're going to have a pool party with!

Right now I'm getting awareness around the Kansas race by sharing this on Facebook. You can post this too and tag friends you know are active.

There's a really tight race going on in Kansas TOMORROW. We have a chance to flip a red district blue! If you have half an hour today, please call some voters for James Thompson. They give you a script, and the system you call into automatically connects you to voters. Easy peasy. http://www.votejamesthompson.com/phonebank?



If I can do this with terrible cramps, you have no excuse.



Also, can we please all be nice? Even if we disagree? This thread is intended for resistance against the Republicans and making sure Dems support that goal, but Iris lily has given some valuable suggestions on how to make a difference.

My local Indivisible is getting more sporadic about sending out the daily action email, but even though I didn't get one today I did make a point of calling my rep to verify that he changed his mind on Trump disclosing his tax returns and also to thank him for doing two town halls in my area in two months, and being respectful about fully answering constituents' questions when he was there. Both town halls were organized by the local Indivisible group and I wasn't able to attend either one, but I still appreciate that he took the time to come to them. Even though I disagree strongly with a bunch of his political views, I do feel that he's conducting himself very well in his actions and given how divided things feel right now in our country it's nice to be able to reach out with a friendly message. Too bad there's a video clip of him accidentally admitting that he thinks he works for the president first and his constituents second-ish.

Don't forget May 25th - Rob Quist for Congress (Montana).  I think the SC election for Mick Mulvaney's seat will be in June, but they have to hold the primaries first.
