Goal one for 2019 and 2020: defeat Donald Trump

I've long said the arc of history doesn't bend by itself — it's up to us to do the work.

That's why I'm so proud of our efforts in 2018. This year's election was a massive repudiation of Donald Trump and what he stands for. We didn't win every race we wanted to, but in the biggest midterm voter turnout in decades, over four million more people voted for Democrats than Republicans. That's extraordinary.

The American people rejected the calls for hate and fear, and voted for hope and opportunity. Taking back the House is the first step in a grassroots movement to reclaim and restore our nation.

And our grassroots activism made a difference. Blue Wave Project candidates were part of this historic effort. Up and down the ballot, we helped flip seats across America.

There's plenty more work to do.

Goal one: defeat Donald Trump and take back the presidency.

Add your name and commit to defeating Trump in 2020.

Onward.

Jeff
