Dalton Special Election Campaign need 2 to 3 dedicated phone bankers. The goal is 100 calls. This election in GA is IMPORTANT because if she WINS, then the Georgia state senate will NOT have a REPUBLICAN SUPER MAJORITY.

CODE BLUE CORE MISSION: Rebuild a progressive voting majority in federal, state and local government.


PRIORITIES FOR THIS GROUP:
2018 SENATE RACE
2018 HOUSE RACE
GOVERNORS' RACES
STATE RACES


OFF THE TABLE FOR THIS GROUP:
CA Secession (we're national)
Abolishing the Electoral College (strategically improbable)
Petitioning for: Electoral College to change it's vote (strategically improbable)
Petitioning for Merrick Garland to be confirmed (strategically improbable)

We are looking for State Captains so please let us know by replying to this post if you're interested. Co-captains are A-OK! You can find the directory in the Files tab above this post.

IMPORTANT NOTE: this is a STRATEGY group for sharing useful information on upcoming and future elections. It is not a place for posting thought-pieces and opinions on past elections. We are looking to build as wide and inclusive a progressive umbrella group as possible. If you want to have a flame war go do it on your own timeline.

FIRM GROUP POLICY: Keep specific policy discussions to an absolute minimum. WHY: These tend to devolve into heated discussions that don't contribute to the stated goal of the group. We need legislators in seats where they can enact progressive legislation. Sometimes policies are regional, or they aren't your priority. So, this policy is just to maintain focus on that end goal.

ALSO: Code Blue is set to as a Secret Group. If you share posts from here non-members won't be able to see them. Additionally, many members don't want to be publicly known, for many reasons such as privacy, security and trolling. So, we ask that you do not share the name freely elsewhere.

Zero tolerance for trolling. Zero tolerance for sharing members' posts outside the group. Zero tolerance for being uncivil. These will get you blocked.

Please comment here if you have suggested action items or ideas. 
Thanks!
