2018 and 2020 are pivotal elections for our country.  It has become abundantly clear since Trump came into office that he is unfit to be President, and we have a Congress controlled by Republicans who are unable or unwilling to rein in his erratic and dangerous behavior.

El Dorado County is in California’s House District 4, currently held by Republican Tom McClintock, a darling of the Tea Party and a man who parrots Trump at every instance, votes to cut affordable health care, and champions clear-cutting our forests in a congressional district that includes Lake Tahoe and Yosemite.

El Dorado County is a rural and suburban county that went for Trump by a comfortable margin in 2016.  Yet since the election — just like in many areas of the country — hundreds of people who’ve never before been involved in politics are working to build a strong Democratic base in a red county.

And it’s working.  In the June primary, Democratic voter turn-out increased 9% over 2014 (the last midterm primary).  Through data tracking, we can trace our success directly to our all-volunteer voter registration and GOTV (Get Out the Vote) efforts.

We invested in a voter survey to find better understand voter opinions about McClintock.  Jessica Morse, McClintock’s Democratic opponent, has been out-fundraising McClintock every quarter.  The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee thinks he’s beatable too, and they are supporting Jessica with their highly competitive and battle-tested Red to Blue program.

There is tremendous momentum in El Dorado County, and we are asking for your help to get us through the 2018 election and beyond to 2020.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 by October 15 for the final stretch of the 2018 campaign (printing and postage for voter mailings, text message outreach to voters, support for volunteer GOTV efforts) and to build our infrastructure for 2020 (prepare to , a pop-up voter registration booth, continue voter registration efforts, building neighborhood coordinators network, etc.).

Hundreds of people have come out of the woodwork to work on this election.  We have the volunteers, we just need your help to keep the lights on and pay for postage.

Thank you for any help you can provide!
