Since losing my election for State Representative in Indiana in 2020, Arielle and I have had quite a ride. Here's the bulleted version:
After my daughter's birth, I realized that the every election we have from here determines not just what my life will look like, but also what her life will look like. I also realized that I worry about the state of the world that we will leave for her when she is my age 30-some years from now. That's why two years after losing the election, Arielle and I realized we needed to take action.
On the ballot this year are some of the most important topics in our lives:
I ran in 2020 because I was committed to a Big Future for Everyone and because many of these issues I thought I could impact as a Democrat, even in a Republican state. That hasn't changed. One of the biggest lessons in our campaign, though, was that even the best ran campaign in an unwinnable district, cannot be won. So Arielle and I got to thinking - what if we could focus our efforts on elections in districts and races that were winnable for Democrats, even if they weren't in our backyard? What if we could have an enormous impact on the campaigns that most need it and where we could actually have an impact. We searched and had a number of conversations with organizations, and we found an organization that does just that and wanted to share them with our supporters.
SwingLeft is a nonprofit organization that takes a data driven approach to impacting the most competitive races in the country to help Democrats win. We met with SwingLeft, and they gave us three ways that you can help:
