Did you miss it? We hope not. But if so, we've got your covered! Our last "to Victory" happy hour event was last night and if you missed it or just want to experience the energy and excitement again, here's the video!
You are the foundation of our great country!
It’s time for us ALL to be Notorious!
Every month since June we've hosted our "to Victory" events to inform and hopefully inspire you to keep pushing with us toward the finish line. This was the last big push to help us Get Out The Vote and our last happy hour event leading up to Blue Victory in November when we regain the White House, flip the Senate and gain seats in the House of Representatives.
