Help a Progressive win in Joe Biden’s Hometown
and Help Defeat Donald Trump 

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.

The courts re-drew the previously gerrymandered Congressional districts in Pennsylvania before the 2018 mid-terms. Now, Matt is now running for re-election in a district that Donald Trump won by 10 percentage points over Hillary Clinton in 2016.

If that didn’t raise the stakes enough, Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional district also includes Scranton, PA, Joe Biden’s original hometown. 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.
