We expect the women-led momentum that propelled Democrats into the House majority in 2018 to continue next year, and we want women in the most competitive races to be able to finish what they started—and lead us to even bigger gains.
That’s why even though it’s still early, we’re rolling out a slate of five previous Democratic women candidates who have announced or will likely announce soon to go up against the exact same opponents in 2020.
Set them up early for grassroots fundraising success: Give $5 or more to all of them now by chipping in to our 2020 Rematch slate.
Carolyn Bourdeaux (GA-7), who missed flipping this seat by .2 points in 2018. Now, she’ll challenge Republican Rep. Rob Woodall again, and with a margin that thin, a bump in presidential-year turnout could be all that’s needed to send her to Congress.
Betsy Dirksen Londrigan (IL-13), who lost against incumbent Republican Rep. Rodney Davis by less than 1 point in 2018, well within range for even a small change in voter turnout to put her over the finish line.
Kara Eastman (NE-2), who will again challenge incumbent Republican Rep. Don Bacon in this swing district that went red by only 2 points in 2018.
Gina Ortiz Jones (TX-23), who also lost by less than 1 point, to incumbent Republican Rep. Will Hurd. She’s not indicated whether she’s interested in a rematch, but we’re hoping sending some grassroots fundraising power her way could help her make up her mind.
Marie Newman (IL-3), who is mounting another primary challenge to Democrat Dan Lipinski, one of the few House Democrats to vote against the ACA. In a safe district like this, Democrats shouldn’t be afraid of ensuring our House majority has a strong left flank.
Make sure these candidates know we’ve got their backs in next year’s rematch: Give $5 or more to each of them.
