SUPERSTATE
Super State: Maine
Fight Susan Collins in the Pine Tree State
How do I Help Maine? Let Me Count the Ways
Swing Left Greater Boston is deploying a full range of strategies to flip Maine and get Susan Collins out of the senate.

Join the battle at any of these Maine-specific events.

Make the most of your visit to friends and family, summer houses, and upcoming vacations. With a little planning, you can connect to a Democratic group anywhere in Maine and offer whatever help they need. Email Paula Joseph for details.

Help fund a dedicated organizer who can coordinate Maine volunteers and grassroots groups. Donate to Flip Susan Collins Senate Seat .
SUPERSTATE
Super State: Florida
Flip the 16th Congressional Seat in the Sunshine State
Canvassing in Florida Starts Up
On the next Swing Left Greater Boston trip, February 24-28, we’ll be knocking on doors in Manatee County. Without you, Dems in Sarasota and Manatee counties won’t be able to register the 20,000 new Democratic voters required to take back the White House and flip Florida’s 16th Congressional seat. As successful and organized as these groups are, they need more feet on the street to accomplish their goals.

Find out more on the next Florida briefing call.

Have a connection in another part of Florida? Put your efforts to work in any of the seven priority counties. Learn more at the Florida Voter Registration with Field Team 6 site.

Want to help from Boston? Join any of these Florida-specific events.


SUPERSTATE
Super State: Pennsylvania
Elect Harold Hayes on March 17 in the Keystone State
Special Election Is Just the First Step

“On March 17, 2020, Dems flipped HD 18, the first of nine seats necessary to turning the PA State House Blue.”

If you want to read this headline on March 18, get to work before it’s too late.

The state congressional seat in PA HD 18 is open and easy pickin’s for the Dems: Lower Bucks County flipped to Democratic control in 2019 for the first time since 1973, and the Democratic candidate, Harold Hayes, is running against the daughter of current State Senator/GOP boss Tommy Tomlinson, who says that she is “committed to Keeping out Dangerous Philadelphia Policies.”

The election can go either way, depending on voter turnout.

That means we have to knock on a lot of doors in a very short time.
There will be shifts every weekend from now through March 17, so be sure to sign up early and often! Learn more.

Also, Swing Left Greater Boston is teaming up with Swing Left Philadelphia for a weekend of action on March 14-15. Join the call on February 17 at 7:00 pm to learn more.

That means we have to make a lot of calls in a very short time. Phone-bank from home at your convenience. Sign up here.

Or host your own phone-bank party. Email Turn PA Blue for details.

That means we have to ensure there are enough funds to cover the cost of campaigning against deep-pocket Republicans. Chip in to support Harold’s campaign.
