We have a problem with Republicans and state government.
Right now Republicans have total control of government in 25 states.
It's not just the Deep South (though we need to win there, too). They control the governorships and state legislatures in swing states like New Hampshire, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin as well.
When Republicans have total control of state government, we see waves of anti-choice attacks like Ohio's abortion ban, Indiana's law requiring funerals for miscarriages, and Florida defunding Planned Parenthood.
The good news? There are 38 governors' races this cycle and most state legislatures are having elections, too. We have over 10,000 women throughout the U.S. who've told us they want to run for office, and we've endorsed four women in governors' races already.
Turning governorships and state legislatures blue won't be easy. That's why we need to hit our $180,000 End-of-Quarter goal this week. Donate $3 now to help build the infrastructure we need to win in the states.
It doesn't even take flipping a state legislature AND a governor's office blue to make an impact in a state.
In the same week last year that Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a bill defunding Planned Parenthood, Democratic Governor Terry McAuliffe in Virginia vetoed the Planned Parenthood defunding bill that Republicans sent him. And Republicans don't stop — McAuliffe vetoed an identical bill just last month!
Flipping a governor's seat can have a massive impact on protecting women and families in a state. That's why we're already endorsing and recruiting for governors' races next year.
If we're going to protect choice, women, and families, we have to break Republicans' grip on our states. Donate $3 now so we can get to work flipping local seats and governorships:
