Our movement only keeps growing and getting stronger.
Over the last 5 months, Indivisibles have nominated and voted for 23 candidates -- 15 of whom won their primaries and move on to November, and five candidates who still have their primaries in the weeks ahead.
Those candidates like Paulette Jordan in Idaho, Liuba Grechen Shirley in New York, and Jeramey Anderson in Mississippi, represent our movement’s values and have committed to fighting for:
✔️Universal health care coverage
✔️Immigrant justice and protections for Dreamers
✔️Campaign finance reform
Today, 24 candidates, nominated and supported by Indivisible groups in the districts and states they wish to represent, join their ranks.
Meet our latest IndivisiCandidates
We're THRILLED about this group of candidates, and how they truly represent the power of our nationwide, on-the-ground political program. This round:
- 14 candidates come from the South, running on progressive platforms in ruby red districts and states.
- 12 of our candidates are women (50%!), and four are women of color, who are running to change the old boys’ club in DC.
- Indivisibles in Tennessee have endorsed 7 (yes, SEVEN!) candidates as they work to flip six house seats and the governor's mansion in the Volunteer State.
Here are a few candidates we think you should keep an eye on as we head to November (check out the full slate here!):
We’re proud to endorse Ayanna Pressley (MA-07), nominated by Indivisible Somerville. The 7th District is one of the most diverse, yet most unequal, districts in the country. 30% of households make over $100,000 annually, while 16% of families in this district live below the poverty line. Ayanna is challenging 20-year Democratic incumbent Mike Capuano in the primary on September 4. She commits to being more than just a reliable vote -- she wants to bring the voices of her district to DC and go to bat for bold, progressive policies. Massachusetts has also never elected a black woman to Congress… and Ayanna hopes to change that.
Kara Eastman won Nebraska’s 2nd District Democratic primary in May. In November, she’ll face Republican incumbent Don Bacon who voted “yes” on TrumpCare and to strip health care from 55,000 of his constituents. Kara isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes in, or call out the Trump administration for failing Nebraskans. That’s why she’s running on a platform of Medicare for All and common sense gun safety laws. Kara was endorsed by Nebraska Grassroots Progressives.
If elected, Andrew Gillum would become the first black governor of Florida. The first step to victory? Winning the Democratic primary on August 28. Andrew is the only non-millionaire seeking the Democratic nomination. He has a strong progressive platform that would increase teacher pay, raise the minimum wage, and fight NRA-backed laws like Stand Your Ground. Andrew was endorsed by Indivisible Action Tampa Bay.
Last month, Deb Haaland secured the Democratic nomination to represent New Mexico’s 1st District in November. Should she win this open seat, she’d become the first Native American woman elected to Congress. Deb plans to fight for underrepresented communities and lend her voice to issues plaguing her community, like the GOP tax scam, accessible and affordable health care, and protections for Dreamers. Deb was endorsed by Indivisible Nob Hill.
We’re excited by these candidates, and allllllll of the candidates, Indivisibles are identifying in their communities and supporting between now and November. Find the complete list of IndivisiCandidates -- including today’s 24 newly-endorsed candidates -- here!
Keep the blue wave momentum going
This weekend marks #100DaysOut from the midterm elections and they’re celebrating in true Indivisible-style -- planning a coast-to-coast weekend of action with 108 events planned (and counting!).
This weekend, Indivisible groups will be:
🚪 Canvassing their communities to support locally and nationally endorsed candidates.
📋 Registering voters to make sure every. single. person. is ready to vote in November.
☎️ Holding phone banks to begin identifying progressives voters in five key states where we could flip Senate seats this fall.
That’s right. Indivisibles are doing the nitty-gritty, roll-up-your-sleeves electoral work. And we’re supporting them every step of the way with tools, trainings, and organizing capacity to support their work… and we’ll continue to do so from now until the polls close on November 6.
But in order to get these resources into the hands of Indivisible groups, we need your support. Can you chip in $24 or $2.40 -- whatever you can -- to help get tools into the hands of Indivisibles working to win big in November?
Thank you for everything you do to support and grow this movement. We’re so grateful for you, for the thousands of Indivisible groups across the country, and for the dozens of progressive candidates endorsed by our movement. Together, we’re reshaping our democracy and what’s politically possible.
Now, let’s make this a weekend of action that will have Republicans shaking in their boots m-o-n-t-h-s before November 6.
