About the Campaign
Decades of neglect have taken a toll on Missouri Democrats. Once a purple bellwether state, Missouri is now a GOP trifecta. So it’s tempting to focus all of our attention on a handful of districts that might be “winnable” — but that strategy leaves some of the candidates that need the most support in the dust.
60% of Missouri has seen nothing but GOP candidates for cycle upon cycle. Democrats running in those districts have little infrastructure to rely on and significant fundraising challenges to overcome. With no support, they become just a name on a ballot, abandoned and unable to spread a message about common-sense policies to the people who need to hear about them most. Activists in those districts are left without a cause to rally around, and voters are left without a real choice.
We can change that.
And we are. Since we began in late 2017, our grassroots community has raised and distributed over $230,000 to Missouri’s Democratic nominees for state legislature, through small-dollar monthly donations from people just like you. Nominees have told us they’ve used their funds for clipboards, door knocking materials, mailers, and even gas money to reach voters in districts that span hundreds of miles. Our community gives those Democratic state legislative nominees resources to reach voters in every corner of the state.
We’re proving that Democratic value – that we all do better, when we all do better.
Why don’t you join us? You can start … today.
