Flip the 14 Leads the Way to Flipping 6 Congressional Seats in California


If Democrats flip 23 seats in 2018, we take back the House. We can flip at least 11 of California's 14 seats.


We started Flip the 14 with one goal in mind: to take back Congress and restore checks and balances in Washington. While many races are still undecided, it is already clear that voters elected a Democratic majority to the House of Representatives. The importance of this success cannot be overstated. Have no doubt: the collective power of volunteers in California and throughout the country made a big difference. Thank you for everything you did to bring us to this point.

In the week after Election Day, we hosted a post-election webinar. We laid out our analysis of the election, along with the path forward as we see it and some next steps for our organization. You can watch it here or download the slide deck here.

There are still a lot of votes to be counted, but we know this: we've flipped at least six seats in California. Republicans Jeff Denham, Steve Knight, Ed Royce (and his handpicked successor Young Kim), Mimi Walters, Dana Rohrabacher, and Darrell Issa (and his handpicked successor Diane Harkey) have been replaced by Democrats Josh Harder, Katie Hill, Gil Cisneros, Mimi Walters, Harley Rouda, and Mike Levin. That's a huge and unprecedented accomplishment.

We must continue. This work of ours, it’s more important than any work most of us have ever done before. The eternal mission of good and decent Americans to form a more perfect union endures. May it always endure.

In solidarity,
Doug Linney

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.
