Democrats had some great wins this week in Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania to name a few! Virginia now has the trifecta which will finally help us ratify the Equal Rights Amendment! The cyclist who flipped off Trump and lost her job because of it, won her bid for supervisor of Loudoun County (home of Trump's golf course).
Beshear won the Kentucky governorship in a state that Trump carried by 30 points in 2016. Plymouth, North Carolina just elected their first black mayor.
People are talking about Kentucky and Virginia a ton, but some of the best and really big news comes out of Pennsylvania! Democrats flipped suburban Delaware County in Pennsylvania which has been controlled by Republicans since the Civil War!!Pennsylvania is a key swing state that went for Trump in 2016 and will be a central battleground state in 2020.
So, this gives us hope! Will Texas be next? Not to be a Debbie Downer, but Texas won't be next if we don't get the progressive vote out. Only 12% of registered voters turned out to vote in last week's election. This is pitiful. We must do better. If Texas is truly going to be a swing state, then we have got to get our Democratic communities built and voting! This is the mission of the FEDDs! Come be a part of our community, join your neighborhood team and help us make sure Texas turns Blue in 2020!
