MAGA Rejected + Early Debrief Call

  1. Voters roundly rejected MAGAs
  2. Delivering for voters works
  3. The grassroots drives wins

This was a rejection of MAGA extremism.

For the last two years, the Indivisible movement has fought to call out and marginalize MAGA extremism, to put the threat to our right to abortion and to our democracy in the spotlight. The results last night demonstrate the power of this movement and this strategy.

Democrats went big and voters rewarded them.

The Indivisible movement has pushed for two years for Democrats to use their trifecta and their administrative powers to deliver for people in real, tangible ways. From prescription drugs to climate action, from gun violence prevention to infrastructure, the Democratic majority passed as much as it could get by Kyrsten Sinema in the Senate. And President Biden used the power of his pen to forgive student debt, to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, and more.

The grassroots is driving our wins for democracy

In June, I wrote to you about the Indivisible movement’s one-two punch strategy for the midterms.

  1. Focus public attention on MAGA extremism locally.
  2. Do massive voter contact to get out the vote (GOTV)
  • In Pennsylvania, Indivisible Mayday mercilessly birdogged Oz in giant broccoli costumes and and forced questions on abortion.
  • In Arizona, Indivisible’s in Arizona 6th confronted the MAGA candidate on abortion and he literally ran away.
  • In New Mexico, I had the pleasure of joining a statewide convening of a couple hundred Indivisible leaders and focusing on the extremism of their seditionist MAGA representative who is now going down in defeat.

Please join us tomorrow

This was somewhat hastily written, so I hope you’ll join me for some deeper discussion of what just happened and what comes next on our debrief and strategy call tomorrow night Thursday, November 10 at 8pm ET/5pm PT. I’ll close with just a final bit of reflection:
