Help PDA Return Katie Porter and Matt Cartwright to Congress
Alan Minsky for the PDA National Team
Katie Porter hails from the traditional Republican stronghold of Orange County, California. The GOP was furious about losing all of the Congressional seats in Orange County in 2018; but top of their hit list for 2020 is the most outspoken and progressive member from OC, Katie Porter. A staunch supporter for Medicare for All, Katie is also a powerful advocate on a range of progressive economic issues, and never pulls any punches when exposing the corruption of the Trump Administration.
Orange County may be trending blue, but it’s still a far cry from San Francisco, Berkeley, or LA. The GOP remains strong in OC and they want revenge. Consequently, Katie has the toughest re-election of any true progressive in Congress. So, PDA will do everything we can to make sure this brilliant young lawmaker returns to Washington.
Matt Cartwright, the progressive Congressman from Northeast Pennsylvania and a co-sponsor of the Medicare-for-All Bill H.R. 1384, faces a tough re-election in one of the most consequential swing districts in the country.
Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional district includes Scranton, PA, Joe Biden’s original hometown. In 2016, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the district. As you can imagine, the campaigning is fierce there in 2020.
Trump would love nothing more than to win Biden’s home district, and knock out a Progressive Congressman at the same time. As such, every extra vote we can win for Rep. Cartwright is a vote against Donald Trump. This one is a two-fer.
Thanks so much for anything you can do.
