You can also find these events on our Facebook page. Here are a few quick links to help you get signed up:

Wisconsin: The Tipping Point State

The 2020 presidential election may well hinge on how Wisconsin votes, and right now the Democratic candidates are polling neck-and-neck with Trump. Everything you do with Team Gold do to organize Democratic voters in the next 11 months, no matter how small, could be the difference! From Greg Sargent of the Washington Post:

“It’s widely assumed that the 2020 voting in Wisconsin will go a long way toward determining whether President Trump serves a second term. And a new poll finds that every single leading Democratic candidate is roughly tied with him in the state. There’s a decent chance — though it’s hardly certain — that any of the leading Democrats would be able to take back Pennsylvania and Michigan, two “blue wall” states Trump cracked. But if Trump holds Wisconsin, he can still prevail in the electoral college, if pretty much all else goes as it did in 2016. By contrast, if Trump loses in Wisconsin, it’s all but certain he’ll lose Pennsylvania and Michigan as well, and with them the election.”

2019 Legislative Report Cards

“Public education should not be a partisan issue. Support for schools should not fall along party lines. We strongly encourage all who care about great public schools to take time to provide targeted support and encourage improvement from those legislators who fail to meet Wisconsin’s high expectations for supporting student success. Every child attending public school in Wisconsin deserves an equal opportunity to succeed, and our lawmakers, just as our schools, must be held accountable for making that opportunity equally accessible to all.”

Way to go, volunteers!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to canvass for Team Gold to help the Democratic Party of Wisconsin reach its statewide goal of 50,000 doors knocked across Wisconsin this past weekend! And of course, special thanks to Rep. Mark Pocan for stopping by the Team Gold canvass launch to rally the troops Saturday morning. Watch this space for more opportunities to get involved in our 1 Year 2 Win!
