|In case you missed it…|
Last week Rachel Maddow called out Missouri Republicans. Three of them, specifically.
One has been indicted for defrauding her patients with a snake oil COVID treatment.
One has been accused of having sex with a drunk 19-year-old girl while he was on duty as a police officer.
And the other has been credibly accused by his children of molesting them. He’s the only one of the three who has been ousted. The others are currently serving in our state house, making laws that impact your family.
All of that’s awful. But do you know what REALLY chafes our hide?
Two of the three had no Democratic challenger in 2020.
That’s right. They were uncontested – those Republicans just walked into those seats.
A Democrat did run against the ousted alleged child molester – and he lost by just 300 votes. He ran a great race, but with just $20k in his campaign, he didn’t have many resources… to run against an alleged child molester.
Missouri, we have to do better.
Finding candidates to run in ruby-red districts is tough, especially if they have no support. That’s why It Starts Today is so important. We’re in the trenches year in and year out, helping fund Democratic nominees so they have the resources to run real campaigns.
We’ve contributed over $230k to Democratic nominees – making our community one of the largest political contributors in Missouri.
But honestly, we can’t go it alone. We need your help to keep working for the nominees.
Will you contribute $25 today to help us meet our outreach goal?
Your donation will help us reach grassroots Missourians like you who care about this state and who are tired of seeing people write us off.
Missouri CAN do better.
But if we – the people of Missouri – don’t care enough to invest in our Democratic nominees and the organizations that support them, what can we expect?
Invest in the future of Missouri today.
