Our 2018 Strategy: Campaigns + Candidates

 

2018 will be a pivotal year for Democrats. We've done the research, connected with our national organizational partners, and on-the-ground campaigns and have focused on those that will create the most impact and we know can be influenced by YOU - Vermonters taking action to support Democrats!

These are the States, Campaigns, and Candidates that Lean Left Vermont will be supporting in 2018: 

Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is  the very definition of a swing state and the new redrawing of lines to correct partisan gerrymandering makes PA one of the most interesting places to lend a hand. Read more about Pennsylvania.

Thanks to The Sister District Project we have been matched with two races:

 

 

New Hampshire 

Lean Left will is supporting New Hampshire Democrat Chris Pappas who was chosen by Democratic voters in June from a crowded field vying to replace Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter. This district has a history of swinging back and forth between Democratic and Republican Candidates.

Chris is a small business owner and community-minded leader who has taken a principal role in addressing some of New Hampshire’s most pressing challenges. From creating new jobs to confronting the opioid crisis and ensuring the delivery of quality, affordable health care, Chris has earned a reputation as a results-driven leader.

New York 

Our focus will be on New York's District 19 to flip Faso out of his seat and elect a Democrat - we are supporting the winner of the June 26th primary Antonio Delgado. Delgado is a native New Yorker who lives in Rhinebeck with his wife and children.

Maine

Our focus will be on Maine's Second Congressional District (ME-02) to defeat incumbent Bruce Poliquin (R). Join us in supporting Democratic Candidate Jared Golden. Jared is a current state legislator, Marine Corps veteran and a native Mainer. Learn more about Jared and why Poliquin has to go! 

 
 

Each of these States, Candidates and Campaigns is supported by actions tailored to get you engaged and help get out the vote, inform Democrats and swing voters in these districts about why they should vote, and, of course, help to win the election in November!
