Feel-good update: Our ad against the NRA
Over the last week, we’ve been asking supporters to chip in to help fund a recruitment campaign in Florida, specifically to find candidates to run for state legislature against 24 Republicans with A/A+ ratings from the NRA who, as of right now, do not have Democratic opponents.
The team stepped up in a big way. Yesterday, we ran the below ad in the Sun Sentinel — one of the biggest newspapers in Broward County.
The ad wasn’t cheap. But this work is too important not to find a way — thanks to our supporters, we were able to afford it.
We want to keep doing more recruitment campaigns to find folks to run against NRA-endorsed candidates — if you want to help, chip in today: runforsomething.net/donate
My only other note today: You must read this story from Mother Jones about the surge in Democrats running in deep-red districts. We’re proud to have helped Texas Democrats recruit for their state legislative races — and we’re working closely with states like Nebraska, Missouri, and Oklahoma to recruit there, too, before it’s too late. We can’t leave any race — even the longshots!! — up for grabs.
Thanks for doing what you’re doing to make this all possible. We’re so grateful.
Miss last week’s update? Catch up on the good vibes…
