VOTE DEMOCRAT FOR INCOME EQUALITY, STUDENT DEBT RELIEF, AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE, GOOD PAYING JOBS, REPEAL REPUBLICAN TAX SCAM, AND FOR MIDDLE CLASS...VOTE DEMOCRAT IN 2018, 2020, AND BEYOND...VOTE EVERY 2 EVEN NUMBER YEAR.
This week, thousands of teachers and supporters marched on state capitols in Oklahoma and Kentucky. They're demanding that students get a better education after decades of budget cuts and austerity forced by Republican state legislators.
Last month in West Virginia, teachers demanded increases and won, proving that Republicans can be forced to back down.
We need more teachers with classroom experience in state legislatures and other elected offices. We are bringing many to our 450-person National Candidate Training in DC next week!
They can defeat Republicans who offer teachers guns instead of a quality education for students.
In 2018, we can change the makeup of legislatures from Maine to Oregon, from North Carolina to Texas, and everywhere in between. We can replace destructive Republicans with progressives who will fight for what everyday people need most such as educating our children, healthcare for our loved ones, expanding Social Security for our parents and grandparents, and good jobs that pay living wages.
In these races, a little bit of money goes a long way. Our help can make an enormous difference. Please donate today.
Thanks for being a bold progressive.
