Trump’s call to suspend Constitution not a 2024 deal-breaker, leading House Republican says

Just a reminder that NOTHING Trump has done over the past seven years or will do today, tomorrow, or next week will ever be seen as a deal-breaker for the Republican Party. The disgraced ex-president has shattered every norm, broken every rule of decorum, and debased and defiled the presidency and American politics with impunity — often to widespread party applause. There is no bottom, folks.

Supreme Court hears clash between LGBTQ community and business owners’ right to discriminate
In an impressive display of right-wing victimhood, a would-be wedding web designer filed suit against the state of Colorado over its public accommodations law, which prohibits businesses from discriminating against same-sex couples. Lawyers for web designer Lorie Smith are set to contend with straight faces that their client is the actual victim because she’s being denied the right to reject same-sex clients based on religious grounds.

GOP strategist: Trump can’t treat the Constitution like his wives

Republican hopes fade as Warnock momentum picks up in Georgia
Following Sen. Warnock’s first-place finish in the first round of voting last month to scattered polling and temperature checks of party operatives, the incumbent Democrat heads into Election Day as at least a slight favorite to defeat Herschel Walker and win a full six-year term. Keep it up, people!

Today’s Action: Phone bank for Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock!

The incumbent Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock and the observably awful, scandal-plagued GOP nominee, Herschel Walker, will face off once again TOMORROW in Georgia’s long-awaited runoff election. Even though Democrats have already secured control of the Senate, one more seat in the upper chamber could mean the difference between advancing and safeguarding our progressive agenda or watching Republicans — set to take control of the House in a few weeks — roll back our hard-fought wins over the next two years.

It’s the home stretch, and we still need all hands on deck to keep Georgia blue tomorrow. We need as many progressives in office as possible to preserve the rights we’ve been fighting so hard for —  reproductive rights, LGBTQ+ rights, gun-safety initiatives, justice reform, etc. There are several more phone-banking opportunities before tomorrow’s election, where you can help identify supporters of Sen. Warnock and talk to on-the-fence voters. People all across the country are able to join in from the comfort of their own homes, and there’s still more than enough work to go around.

Georgia Votes is STILL hosting ongoing phone-banking parties for Raphael Warnock all day today, as well as a final round tomorrow until the polls close! You don’t have to be a seasoned professional or a registered voter in Georgia to join this fight, so commit to a shift today!


Required Reading for the Resistance. Actions that make a difference.
