Abortion rights win in four states, including Kentucky

John Fetterman wins Pennsylvania Senate seat, defeating Dr. OZ in nailbiter

PA AG Josh Shapiro handily defeats rabid election denier Doug Mastriano
We can all breathe a sigh of relief.

Greg Abbott defeats Beto O’Rourke in Texas governor’s race
It’s a marathon, not a sprint and eventually the Lone Star State will go blue — but for now Texans have somehow decided to reelect their astoundingly inept and corrupt MAGA governor to another disastrous term. As much as we love Beto, after three consecutive election losses, perhaps it’s time to go back to skateboarding.

Today’s Action: Take a well-deserved break, then let’s get back to work. 

We still don’t know who will control Congress for the next two years, but we do know this: Republicans’ red wave, it ain’t happenin’. Not on your watch.

In fact, with the fate of American democracy hanging in the balance, Democrats have likely secured the most successful midterm for a president’s party in decades — and it’s not an accident. It’s because of your work. You should be proud, and you deserve take a well-earned exhale.

Six years ago, when we started OD Action, in the wake of the most devastating election in our lifetimes, the popular sentiment was that it was time to lick our wounds and scream into a sheet cake. We decided it was time to fight back.

You joined us, and we won. We won in 2018, won in 2020, and however things shake out in the 2022 midterms, we know that we have defied expectations and made history.

So give yourself a break today! You’ve earned it. Take a moment to recharge, because this is far from over. MAGA fascism isn’t going anywhere, so neither are we.

We are so grateful to stand with you. Give yourself some time to breathe today. And get ready to fight again tomorrow.
