Presidential Race

This is a Purple “battleground” state, one of six critical states that voted for Obama in 2012, but then voted for Trump in 2016. It is absolutely critical to our survival that we win back this state for Biden in 2020.

Trump won this state in 2016 with just 0.7% more votes than Hillary Clinton, or roughly 44,000 votes out of more than 6 million votes cast in Pennsylvania. 3.5 million people, including more than 500,000 young people, aged 18-24, did not vote in that election, ten times the number that could have changed the outcome of that election in Pennsylvania. Even more young people have newly turned 18 since 2016 and are thus eligible to vote in this election.

Senate Race

There are no Senate seats up for election in Pennsylvania this year.

House Races

The best we can hope for in 2020 at the Presidential and Senate levels is to get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell so that we will at least survive the next four years. But in the medium term, we need to elect politicians who support the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, the Nuclear Ban Treaty and other real, sustainable solutions to the global threats facing us all.

Luckily, we already have over 100 such politicians in the House of Representatives. We need to make sure they get re-elected, and we need to elect more of them!

If you live in one of these US Congressional Districts, you have a progressive member of Congress to support

District 2 – Boyle

District 3 – Evans

District 4 – Dean

District 5 – Scanlon

District 8 – Cartwright
