LANDSLIDE Email from Daily Kos 10/18/16 5:03 PM

Eric, this is huge news: The Clinton campaign is transferring $6 million to state parties in seven purple states to help Get Out The Vote for down ballot candidates and putting new resources into red states like Arizona, Missouri and Indiana in an effort win a landslide.

This is how we build a Democratic wave to take back Congress. Republicans are already reeling from the onslaught of negative news wrought by the Trumpocalypse—an all-out Democratic offensive now could overcome the GOP's congressional gerrymandering and win back the House.

Can you chip in $1 to each of Daily Kos' 14 endorsed candidates running in must-win House races?

P.S. My colleague Michael wrote you this weekend about disastrous new polling for House Republicans. I've included his email below so you can see just how bad things are for the GOP right now.


Eric, the House was never supposed to be in play. Republicans had gerrymandered congressional maps so expertly after the 2010 midterm landslide that Democrats were supposed to be locked out of the House until 2022 at the earliest. But then came the Trumpocalypse.

New polls show Democrats opening up a big lead in the race for House—potentially big enough to overcome the GOP's unprecedented gerrymandering and return Nancy Pelosi to the speaker's chair. But wait, it gets better. Republicans—already trailing Democrats by seven points in generic ballot polls—drop to a 12-point deficit if they refuse to unendorse Trump. And Republicans who do unendorse him? They drop to a 12-point deficit too. They're Trumped if they do, Trumped if they don't.

That's why Daily Kos is going all-in to take back the House.

Can you chip in $1 to each of our 14 endorsed candidates to help turn the House blue?

Keep fighting,
