I am so excited to serve as Chairwoman of the DCCC and help Democrats succeed across the nation! But, we have a LOT of work to do.
I spent some time mapping out my vision for the Democratic Party and the plan to make it happen.
It is important for me to share this information with my top supporters. Because I won't be able enact this plan without your help.
The first step is to kick off our momentum by raising $1O,OOO to elect Democrats today. Will you chip in $5 to help me make sure that Democrats keep winning?
OFFICIAL CHERI BUSTOS STRATEGY MEMO
Below is Cheri Bustos' strategy memo. She outlines her goals and plans to lead the party into the future.
DEMOCRATS FLIPPED  HOUSE SEATS IN 2018
DEMOCRATS NEED TO PROTECT  HOUSE SEATS IN 2020

1. Fortify our new Democratic Majority
We scored a huge win in November 2018, flipping an incredible 4O SEATS for Democrats. Unfortunately, Donald Trump's approval rating actually CLIMBED after the Midterms -- there's no telling what the future holds.
Here's what we do know: We won in 2018 because grassroots supporters were committed to replacing Trump yes-men with great Democratic leaders, and we started building momentum EARLY! So now is the time to get to work >>

2. Deliver real results for the American people
If we strengthen our Democratic momentum, we have the opportunity to accomplish so much good for the American People:
-- Lower health care costs,
-- raise wages for hard working Americans,
-- and crack down on Republican corruption.
We must have high-impact grassroots programs to reach and activate more voters and volunteers than ever before. Because Republicans still control the Senate and Supreme Court, and we can't expect Donald Trump to play by the rules. So we still need all the help we can get >>

3. Protecting vulnerable Democrats
In order to accomplish these goals, we must renew our commitment to defending vulnerable Democrats, while going all-out in historically Republican Districts. I won a Trump district in 2018 by 24 points, so I truly believe Democrats can win everywhere.
This is not going to be easy. The GOP is gearing up for a brutal 2020 rematch. Donald Trump's campaign has already raised over $1OO MILLION! So, we have to bring the fight to every. single. district.
The time to start fighting is now. If you're with me, chip in $5 now >>
