With Republicans passing laws across the country to limit our voting rights, with extremism becoming mainstream in the GOP, and with state elections and unfounded recalls, the time is NOW to stop the Republicans. We simply cannot wait until the 2022 midterms to support Democratic candidates and save our democracy. It is all on the line.
VIRGINIA 2021 STATE ELECTIONS:
THE BELLWETHER STATE
In November 2021, Virginia has its state election. Democrats must hold their governing trifecta. Win 2021, and the 2022 narrative strongly favors Democrats. Lose and hand Republicans a decisive advantage, crippling Democratic recruitment and fundraising for the midterms. As Stacey Abrams used Georgia to prove her theories on voter turnout, STRIKE PAC is using the 2021 Virginia state elections to prove that we can maximize Democratic coalition turnout and win swing voters by framing the election as a referendum on the Republican Party.
Our on-the-ground partners, SBDigital and Our States Matter, have an unparalleled knowledge of Virginia’s districts and candidates, and have been instrumental in flipping Virginia from red to blue. They are highly effective in finding, engaging, and motivating voters.
Via beta-launching in Virginia 2021, STRIKE PAC will be ready to deploy a fully operational, battle-tested “war machine” on Day One of the 2022 midterm cycle.
CALIFORNIA 2021 RECALL:
A PARTISAN ATTACK ON CALIFORNIA VALUES
The California Recall Election isn’t about Governor Gavin Newsom.
It’s a blatant Republican assault on California values.
California’s Democratic governor was elected in 2018 by historic margins. Yet, with funding from Trump mega-donors and out-of-state partisans like Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich, the Republican radicals are forcing an unpopular recall on Californians.
In a state with 22 million registered voters, the recall movement — made up of extremists, Trump loyalists, and fringe Covid-deniers — got just 1.7 million signatures, representing less than 8% of the state’s electorate. The recall election doesn’t represent the sentiment of California voters, it is a rightwing Republican attack on California values and our democracy.
