Flip the West and Commit to Flip Blue jointly hosted a seven-day a week virtual phone banks focused on flipping U.S. Senate seats.
The Senate is key to promoting racial justice, protecting the courts, healthcare, the environment, and so many other critical issues. We are building voter excitement and participation through voter registration campaigns, targeted information about the Republican Senators and the Democratic candidates, and Get Out The Vote drives, throughout the 2020 election cycle. Voter to voter contact has proven to be extremely effective, so our phone banks are critical in our quest to flip Senate seats, keep our House majority and win back the White House.

district includes all of Kings County, and portions of Fresno County, Tulare County,
and Kern County. It is one of the largest congressional districts in the state.
Approximately 700,000 people live and work in the district.
By the Numbers: through 1/24/2018
Shifts: 1063 (298 of which were volunteer shifts)

Our most recent staff canvass in CD 21 (Mendota) netted amazing results: 195 convos and 186 joined last Friday 1/19. CD 21 is receptive to our canvass!
On February 24, we’re organizing a canvass in Coalinga (it’s the closest spot to the Bay Area and quite reachable for folks in the South Bay). Will you join us?
Here’s the skinny on travel time and there’s even places to stay à https://www.kayak.com/hotels/Coalinga,CA-c19130/2018-02-23/2018-02-24/2adults?sort=rank_a – but you can share driving and make it back and forth in a day.
- 2 ¾ hours from Oakland
- 2 ¾ hours from San Jose
- 2 hours 50 minutes from downtown San Francisco
The travel time is shorter for our volunteers in Salinas or Monterey area because they can head south on Hwy 101:
- 1 hour 50 minutes from the Labor Council office in Salinas (Monterey-Santa Cruz LC)
- 2 hours 13 minutes from Watsonville
Sign up online for any of our canvases (CD 10 or CD 21) à https://www.workingamerica.org/centralvalley/volunteer .
And you can sign up directly for the Coalinga canvass here à https://actionnetwork.org/events/volunteer-with-working-america-cd-21
Commit To Flip Blue
Amazing Democratic momentum! Even with Republican Estes’s win #KS04 in the special election over Democrat #JamesThompson, Estes's lead was less than 6 points (with 94% of the vote in). Trump had won the district by 27 points and Pompeo won his seat by more than 31 points.
Thanks to James Thompson and to all our volunteers who hosted and made calls into this race, even though all the odds were against us. It took Trump, Mike Pence and Ted Cruz personally intervening in this race to beat us, and Democrats across the country should learn from and be inspired by the fight everyone put up.

On Tuesday, April 18th, there will be a special election in Georgia CD6 to fill the seat vacated by Tom Price, who became the Secretary of Health and Human Services. This election is open to candidates from all parties. If no one secures 50% of the vote, a runoff between the top two vote-getters will occur on June 20th.
Jon Ossoff has emerged as the leading Democratic candidate. Once represented by Newt Gingrich and solidly Republican, the district was one where Hillary lost by only 1.5% in November. It's one of the best near-term opportunities for a Democratic pickup anywhere in the country. And, as the special election nears, Jon's momentum is steadily rising.
Join us at the following phone banks from now through April 18th and make a difference in this important race! Please bring a cell phone and laptop/tablet.
