You’ve probably heard that a record number of women are running for office—many in the upcoming 2018 House race. Fantastic as that is, there is a bit of a downside. Some places will have numerous candidates in Democratic primaries, which can make it harder for any to get traction among voters. Candidates in crowded races may be pressed to spend more to get their message out.
Swing Left is getting out ahead of the problem with a fundraising strategy that will boost the winners of Democratic primaries—whoever they are—as soon as they win.
With the Senate map favoring Republicans, Swing Left is focusing on the House, a fight Democrats have a better shot of winning. Democrats need to flip 24 seats to take back the House. The group zeroes in on the 70 swing districts nationwide—those places where the last election was won by 15% of the vote or less, where Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump, or where other circumstances make it a competitive district.
