Until it’s dead, keep calling to kill TrumpCare! We live in a state with 2 Democratic Senators. But Indivisible has a way for you to make calls to influence persuadable Republicans in red states who may be on the fence.
The November 7th Election is critical to our goal to defeat the Trump agenda. The entire country will be watching the results as a bellwether for 2018 – only NJ and VA have state elections this year. See the Priority Actions above and the Volunteer and Donation Opportunities below to learn what you can do this week to make this a big W.
An indicator of the import of this election is the outside money that is pouring into our state in an effort to smear the Northam-Fairfax-Herring ticket. The far-right knows that only one thing has stood in the way of implementing their extremist legislative agenda in VA – a Democratic governor. Governor McAuliffe vetoed a record setting 118 bills including cutting support for Planned Parenthood, imposing more requirements on voter registration, restricting absentee voting, expanding access to handguns, giving businesses the right to refuse services to same-sex couples, and so on.
The Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and all 100 seats in the House of Delegates are up for election this year. We need to flip as many districts as possible to blue, improving on the 66-34 Delegate majority currently held by Republicans. We also need to keep a Democrat in the Governor’s chair in order to have veto over any harmful pieces of legation if the legislature remains in Republican control. For these reasons, Indivisible Arlington would like you to focus on state activities for the remainder of 2017.
As a special initiative, Indivisible Arlington has adopted three candidates for the House of Delegates: Veronica Coleman from the 84th District in Virginia Beach, Debra Rodman from the 73rd District in Henrico, and Alfonso Lopez from the 49th District in Arlington. Watch our State Elections: How You Can Help page and join our closed Facebook Group to find out more about our adopted candidates.
