SWEEP CONGRESS: ELECT A WAVE OF PRO-REFORM PROGRESSIVES TO FEDERAL AND STATE LEGISLATURES
Republicans currently dominate our federal and state governments. As a party that has shown itself committed to systematic race-based voter suppression, gerrymandering, and big-money corruption for their own political benefit, we should expect nothing less from the GOP than stalwart resistance to our reform agenda. That means that in the general elections to come in 2017, 2018, and 2020, we need to unseat as many anti-democratic Republicans as possible, by defeating them with bold pro-reform progressives. But it’s not just the Republicans who are on notice. We will doggedly pressure Democrats in the primaries to break with Big Money, resist Trump, and embrace an unapologetically progressive agenda, including an explicit commitment to our reform package. If they’re not up to the task, we will challenge them in the primaries.
Electing a wave of pro-reform progressives in the Senate, the House, and state legislatures across the country will create the immediate political conditions needed for Congress to pass fundamental democracy reform.
