Resisting the radical Republican agenda
In key states, Progressive Turnout Project’s accountability arm, Stop Republicans, buttresses our voter turnout programs with micro-targeted digital ad campaigns. Our ads help stop disinformation in its tracks, educate voters on relevant political events in the news, and mobilize them to take action.
Our voter contact programs target the worst of the worst elected Republicans, especially the most craven — and most vulnerable — Senators listed below.
Every dollar we raise supports the voter turnout programs at Progressive Turnout Project. In 2020, we employ a field staff of over 1,000 who are reaching infrequent voters on the phone and with handwritten letters — because voter turnout is how we get rid of Republicans and create lasting change.
Our digital ads go up early to establish narratives, frame races, and build grassroots momentum for our candidates — even in cases where the Democratic primary isn’t over. We also fundraise for Democratic challengers in tough Senate and House races so they have the means to go the distance on the campaign trail.
Where we’re involved
Our Stop Republicans messaging focuses on the worst actors in the Republican Party, especially Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and other enabling senators who are up for re-election in 2020:
- Lindsey Graham (South Carolina)
- Susan Collins (Maine)
- Cory Gardner (Colorado)
- Martha McSally (Arizona)
- Thom Tillis (North Carolina)
- Joni Ernst (Iowa)
- Kelly Loeffler (Georgia)
Of course, this list isn’t exhaustive — we’re always on the lookout for Republicans who need pushback on their lies, duplicity, and cowardice.
