Midterm Elections 2018

The DNC is doing unprecedented work to support candidates at the state level this year:

Providing cybersecurity guidance for states — you know the Russians are going to be back to attack our democracy again this year. We’re helping campaigns protect themselves.

Raising grassroots funds for candidates — helping candidates across the country fund their campaigns the right way: From grassroots supporters like you.

Targeting new universes of unregistered voters — our tech team is creating new datasets that identify over 25 million likely Democrats who are currently unregistered, so campaigns can target our voter registration outreach as smartly as possible.

Supporting state parties — now’s a time to make large, long-term investments in state parties, and that’s exactly what we’re doing through the State Party Innovation Fund.

Rebuilding and maintaining the voter files — without it, we can’t do the organizing work it will take on the ground to win in November 2018.

Jimmy Kimmel speaks as a Dad

“Senator John Cassidy started telling people that any plan he supports would have to pass what he called ‘the Jimmy Kimmel test.’ And then he teamed up with Senator Lindsey Graham to write a bill that most definitely does not pass that test.

It doesn’t protect people from having their rates jacked up for pre-existing conditions, doesn’t prevent insurance companies from putting lifetime caps on how much they’ll spend on a person with medical issues, and it cuts a huge amount of money, maybe hundreds of billions of dollars in health care funding.

And Americans understandably, especially, do not like the idea of being priced out of insurance for a pre-existing condition.”

Planned Parenthood: One in five women in America has relied on Planned Parenthood, and their health care shouldn’t get caught up in congressional Republicans’ extreme agenda. This proposal would deny millions of women access to cancer screenings, birth control, and STD testing and treatment.
