The path to control of the U.S Senate runs right through Iowa and the race for U.S. Senate in Iowa is neck and neck! The choice between Democrat Theresa Greenfield and incumbent Republican Joni Ernst could not be clearer. In a state ravaged by COVID-19, natural disasters, low wages, and the loss of family farms Theresa Greenfield stands out as a midwestern champion of the working and middle class. More and more Iowans are waking-up to the fact that Joni Ernst does not know their struggles anymore than she knows the price of soybeans. But every one of us needs to step up now to help Greenfield cross the finish line! Click here to help Get Out the Vote in Iowa! act.myngp.com/Forms/1198803025322311680 ...

We're shining the Spotlight on Georgia again because, in a year of odd ball occurrences, Georgia is providing us with more than our fair share. Recent polling has put Jon Ossoff slightly ahead, or in a virtual tie with, incumbent Senator David Perdue. Once again, the trends are good here and, once again, trends don’t really mean much. It will not be enough for Ossoff to come out ahead on November 3. He needs to garner more than 50 per cent of the vote or Georgia will have two run-off elections on the ballot in January. And, with a third party candidate, muddying the water, the chances for a majority are slim unless we all come together with our full support. Please review the Spotlight on Ossoff and help as much as you can! act.myngp.com/Forms/1272549469220503552 ...

A few weeks ago, we put the ADA spotlight on Jaime Harrison the Democrat running to unseat Lindsey Graham in South Carolina. Today, we return to that race because it has gone from possible to quite doable. Both national and statewide trends have improved considerably with recent polling showing the race virtually tied! Trends are not victories so each and every one of us needs to step up now to do what we can. Defeating the two-faced Trump sycophant Lindsey Graham would be wonderful, defeating him with a class act like Harrison would be sweeter still! And Graham's ridiculous, dangerous refusal last week to take a COVID test prior to his debate with Harrison simply underscores this need.

In the middle of the COVID pandemic, Donald Trump is in the courts suing to abolish the ACA. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will protect our health care, add a public option and lower costs for everyone. ...

Three thoughts on the VP debate...1) Pence packaged Trumpism in calm tones but that doesn't change the substance or the lies 2) Harris did a great job of powering through the more subtle but clear misogyny and time robbing of Pence (and the moderator at times) to deliver key points and messages. Good job! and 3) "they are coming for you" was a strong take away. Don't forget that.

HA!Mike Pence fly - meet the Texas AFL-CIO swag.

Tonight’s buzz was that Mike Pence couldn’t beat Kamala Harris or the housefly. But in Texas, where the flies are bigger, we can flip the House and we have just the tool to do it.
