The 2020 Starting Lineup

Each of these nine candidates represents a critical piece of realizing our mission to achieve a Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate in 2021 while furthering our progressive vision for this country. If we’re going to secure the big, structural change that Americans so desperately need, we must not only hold onto the House of Representatives, but embolden it with new and powerful voices willing to lead in righteous fights.

For the Senate: Rev. Raphael Warnock (GA), Cal Cunningham (NC), Jaime Harrison (SC), MJ Hegar (TX)

For the House:  Sharice Davids (KS-03), Kara Eastman (NE-02), Jackie Gordon (NY-02), Nate McMurray (NY-27), and Candace Valenzuela (TX-24)

Your contribution can be split evenly across our nine candidates.

Warnock_no_description.jpg

He is the senior pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church, running to make sure every voice is heard and to fight hard for working families. He would be Georgia's first Black senator.

After being elected NC's youngest state senator, he served in Iraq and Afghanistan as part of the Army Reserve. He'll put NC first by supporting communities of color, building a clean energy economy, and fighting political corruption.

Jaime Harrison is a history-making leader and associate chairman of the DNC who is looking to revitalize SC politics and fight for opportunity for all South Carolinians by unseating Trump-enabler Lindsey Graham.

MJ Hegar is a former Air Force Fighter Pilot who tirelessly fought for women's rights in the military. As a senator she'd do the same to expand medicare, fight climate change, reform immigration, and put families first.

The first openly gay woman of color in Congress, Sharice Davids spent her first term strengthening public schools, lowering the cost of healthcare, and making sure the government is working for the people—not special interests.

A progressive leader with a background in the non-profit sector, Kara Eastman is fighting for healthcare and livable wages as well as tackling student debt and corporate power. She would be the first woman to represent this district.

Valenzuela_no_description.jpg

This lifelong Texan has devoted her life to fighting for opportunities for others. With a background in education, Candace Valenzuela unseated an 18-year incumbent on her local school board in her first run for office in 2017. She would be the first Afro-Latina in Congress.

mcmurray_no_description.jpg

This Upstate NY native got his start in local politics, and is an outspoken progessive candidate looking to flip a deep red district. When Nate McMurray ran in this district in 2018, he lost by less than 1% of the vote.
