A wave of political activism delivered the win we needed, but we can't let it recede.
Ready to keep working, Dan!! So happy PA is finally called (altho it continues to annoy me the media is considered the "official" call vs the secretary of a particular state). Let's go get those GA Senate seats!!
Thank you for laying out the work that still needs to be done. ‘Preciate ya!
Looking forward to the fight in GA in the near term and taking the fight to the Republicans in the long term.
Taking a moment from planning my upcoming week of teaching to celebrate. To get ready for GA and Jan 5th, and to have my frustration now turn into amusement of the “Fuck Biden” flags off the backs of trucks here in Florida. Celebrate, sleep, and back to work 👍🏼
Dead serious question here: Would boots on the ground in Georgia be more helpful than what I can do from up here in Maine, or is that just not really a thing because of the pandemic? Because if they need me, I have the great privilege of being able to take a month and go knock doors.
Thank you Dan. The first action I took after learning that Joe Biden was declared the President Elect was to cry in relief. They second was to make a donation to Ossoff and Warnock. WE MUST FIGHT FOR THOSE SENATE SEATS!!
You truly love to see it. Let's keep going.
It's a great win. I hope Biden remembers the grass roots activists and Democratic Representatives who fought (in some cases without support from the DNC) to help get him in office.
Thank you and the Crooked team so much for helping to keep me sane. A 4 yr old weight came off of my chest yesterday. My joy was tempered by my mother's reaction. Screaming and crying that my sister and my votes were a slap in her face, and that she can't talk to us for awhile. Any advice on how to deal with scared older people who believe that their ss checks are going to stop coming? I don't know where this idea came from, but she will not listen to anything we say about Biden.
Cheers, Dan! Would have been harder to get involved without you all the past 4 years.
Looking forward to reading your longer take on the work for down ballot and House races. I saw the fight already brewing about whether Dems should abandon big bold plans. Seems to me like the moderate Dems have trouble messaging to their voters. They seem okay with playing by media rules -- and leaking to Politico -- instead of figuring out how to fight the rightwing media ecosystem. Which is easier said and done, but I hope their "post-mortem" addresses it.
It's such a joy and a relief to see that the darker forces of politics can be overcome, especially by the collective action of the masses. Like me, there are millions around the world who have no stake in US politics except to hope it holds up as the model of democracy - and we can't vote, we can't donate, so all we can do is watch. But if there's something we can do, no matter how small to help the ongoing fight, then let us know. I'm in. Keep up the amazing work, Dan.
Very well put Dan! As I heard during the coverage this week, it’s clear that “America is activated” and we need to keep that fire lit. Can’t wait to continue to do the hard work and deliver real results.
