Over the course of the year, we’ve gotten to know 134 candidates running to flip 14 chambers in 10 states. On tight budgets, they are doing the hard work: knocking on doors until their feet are sore and talking to voters until their voices are hoarse. They’re building their names and reputations in communities that have often seen the same GOP incumbent sit in office for over a decade.

And they could not be more grateful for the support you have given them — through reading and sharing their stories, talking to voters in their district, or donating to the Flippable Fund to help them do what may seem impossible: flip longstanding red districts blue.
