If you make a donation to one Senate candidate today, this should be it:

Jack, North Carolina Democrats are fretting that the national party is sleeping on the state's Senate race, where Democrat Cheri Beasley is running neck-and-neck with right-wing extremist Ted Budd for an open seat. National Democrats might be sleeping on it, but Daily Kos ain't.…

Re: Sign Here: These corporations are donating to the next insurrection

Jack, in the wake of Jan. 6, corporations were quick to denounce the actions of the Sedition Caucus--the 147 GOP members of Congress who objected to the certification of the 2020 presidential election--and pledged to stop donations. But as soon as the dust settled, they went right…

Sometimes, the best defense is simply a good offense. And Daily Kos plays OFFENSE!

Jack, everyone knows how badly we need to hold the Senate. But we cannot, absolutely cannot, forget about the House. Imagine how awful it would be to keep our Senate majority—or even elect enough Democrats willing to curtail the filibuster—yet simultaneously lose control of the …

Re: They’re trying to stop people from voting. We’re working to protect everyone’s freedom to vote.

Jack, voting can be challenging. Between long lines at the polls, confusing voting rules that vary by state, outdated infrastructure, changing voting locations, and rampant misinformation, voting can be a grueling experience for some. But every vote matters and everyone deserv…
