This isn't impossible: We could flip the House

Patricia, How does taking back the House sound? I'm here to tell you: It's doable. Americans are sick and tired of Republican policies that hurt women and families. We're angry at representatives who won't stand up to Donald Trump and his harmful policies, like his budget that would strip Planned Parenthood of any and all federal funding, his health care bill that would kick millions off their insurance, or his plans to gut Medicaid. I know it seems early, and it won't be easy with districts heavily gerrymandered in favor of Republicans. But when this community works together, we can do incredible things. We can only flip the House next year if everyone pitches in. Donate $3 to unseat Republicans, elect pro-choice Democratic women, and flip the House from red to blue: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170523_email_FlipTheHouse We need to flip 24 seats to take back the House. That's a number within our reach. For starters, Trump's approval rating has fallen to a new low of just 41%. The first midterm election of a presidency is, historically, not a great election for the party that holds the White House, and Trump's low approval ratings could sink other Republicans. On top of that, 217 House Republicans voted for Trumpcare, a bill that would take health care away from millions while giving tax breaks to the rich. But it's not just about Republicans' shortcomings: All across the country, grassroots Democrats are getting fired up, marching in the streets, connecting with their communities, and considering running for office. At EMILY's List, more than 13,000 women have told us they're interested in running. And nearly 7,000 people have told us they want to help a woman run. We're using these unprecedented numbers to encourage more women to jump into House races. And if we can grow our recruitment roster and sustain this grassroots energy, we could build a wave big enough to flip those 24 seats and turn the House blue. Now is a crucial time to build our power. Donate $3 to make sure we have the resources to elect pro-choice Democratic women and take back the House next year: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20170523_email_FlipTheHouse Thank you, Stephanie Schriock President, EMILY's List

Patricia,

How does taking back the House sound?

I'm here to tell you: It's doable.

Americans are sick and tired of Republican policies that hurt women and families. We're angry at representatives who won't stand up to Donald Trump and his harmful policies, like his budget that would strip Planned Parenthood of any and all federal funding, his health care bill that would kick millions off their insurance, or his plans to gut Medicaid.

I know it seems early, and it won't be easy with districts heavily gerrymandered in favor of Republicans. But when this community works together, we can do incredible things.

We can only flip the House next year if everyone pitches in. Donate $3 to unseat Republicans, elect pro-choice Democratic women, and flip the House from red to blue.

We need to flip 24 seats to take back the House. That's a number within our reach.

For starters, Trump's approval rating has fallen to a new low of just 41%. The first midterm election of a presidency is, historically, not a great election for the party that holds the White House, and Trump's low approval ratings could sink other Republicans.
