79 Days: Adopt A State

Today is a Sunday, the day I post a quick step you can take to help defeat Trump in the fall. I live in D.C. Many of the stories I’m telling on this blog concern friends here, or in Minnesota, New York and other states that already tend to vote for Democrats in presidential elections. If you are in such a state, you can still do a lot more than just vote. The folks over at Vote Save America, an offshoot of the popular Pod Save America podcast* are collecting news and resources to help win six states most likely to swing the election: Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida. You can “adopt” any (or all!) of these states to follow developments and learn how to help win each as the election nears. Click the state links above or the button below for all six newsletters.

*Full disclosure: I’m not a listener, but I hear it’s great. There’s only so many podcast hours in the day!

Thanks for reading!
