Flip the 14's Plan to Take Back Congress Starts in California


If 24 seats are turned, we can take back the House. 14 are in California.

The time to take back Congress is NOW.

Democrats need to retake 24 seats to flip the U.S. House of Representatives, and the path to victory starts in California.

Republicans hold 14 California congressional seats and they continue to support Donald Trump against the interests of our state and their constituents. Although, nationwide, Hillary Clinton won in 23 Congressional Districts currently held by a Republican, winning those districts will not be enough. We CAN and MUST do better. It’s time to expand the map of winnable seats in California and it's time to Flip the 14.

As long as the Republicans control Congress, we can expect more of the same  – party above people, cowardice before country. With them in control, we can expect a Congress that:

  • Continues to put the needs of the super rich ahead of the middle class;
  • Tries to take health care away from millions of Americans while making devastating cuts to Medicare, Social Security, Medi-Cal/Medicaid, and other services that help us live healthy and dignified lives;
  • Hinders Congressional oversight over Trump’s shady business dealings and campaign ties to Russia; and
  • Slashes and burns clean air and water protection, support for struggling families, and rules that protect workers.

Flip the 14 is focused on keeping the heat on these 14 Members, and supporting and amplifying the work of Resistance activists who will turn out the Democratic vote in those districts this November.

Working Together with the Resistance

Flip the 14 is supporting the work of the Resistance to defeat California's 14 Republicans in Congress. We have a President who is undermining our values, embarrassing our great country, and creating a less stable and more dangerous world. And he's getting away with it because the Republicans that control Congress are silent. Indeed, many of the most harmful aspects of the Trump agenda, like taking away health care from millions of Americans and raising taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts for the richest 1%, are driven by the Republicans in Congress.

It's time for a change. We just need to flip 24 seats in the House of Representatives, and 14 of them are in California. Flip the 14 is run by a team with a proven track record of running successful campaigns. We've seen what works, and we're flexible enough to try out new ideas. In this climate of uncertainty, we think it's a mistake to only focus on a narrow spectrum of seats, especially in California. A lot can happen between now and Election Day, and we'll be present in all 14 districts, planting the seeds for a wave election in 2018.

We need your help. Please consider a donation to help Flip the 14.
