How To Help Win the 2 Georgia Senate Runoff Elections
Joe Biden has won the presidency, and the Democrats held the House. But if the Republicans keep the majority in the Senate, we all know what Mitch McConnell will do — he’ll obstruct everything.
We know he won’t allow any progressive legislation to pass. We know there is an excellent chance he will block every judge we want to put on the bench and every reason to believe he’ll make confirming Joe Biden’s cabinet a complete nightmare. The only way to prevent this nightmare is to make sure that Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff win the runoff elections and become Georgia’s new Senators.
Neither David Perdue nor Kelly Loeffler were able to get more than 50% of the vote on November 3rd, so that’s a good start. But runoff elections are marked by low turnout — it’s anyone’s opportunity to win these seats. Whichever side is more motivated to get out and vote will win these seats.
The amazing grassroots organizers in the state have proved that Democrats can indeed win in Georgia. We all must get involved to help win these two Senate seats. Everything we could want out of a Biden administration will be dead on arrival without them.
One important caveat
Everyone across the country can help, but it is incredibly important to remember that we MUST listen to the people in Georgia. There is no room for error, and we owe it to the incredible organizers in the state who were able to flip the state blue for Joe Biden. They know, better than any of us, what messages will resonate with the voters.
If you plan to amplify these runoff elections and the two candidates on social media, take your cue from their campaigns and the organizations listed in this guide. Take a little while to see what issues THEY are focusing on, and make sure you follow suit. Nationalizing this race could prove disastrous for us.
There will be lots of organizations that want to help Georgia, but again, I think we need to help those who are in Georgia or in close contact with Georgia organizers. This belief informs what you see in this post.

Join Us In Peace and Harmony
A few days ago an African American family member pulled out of the driveway and discovered a hangman’s noose tied to their tree. The family has lived over 25 years in this community and found the discovery shocking and unsettling. The community feels the same way.
The discovery received news courage on several TV channels and appeared on social media. In the wake of so much racial unrest and the present state of our union, we feel compelled to support the family and use this event to heal our community.
Please download the attached flyer and join us on Saturday, September 12, at 11:00 am for a unity caravan. Make your own poster and bring the family. More instructions will be given there. Let’s make a great showing. Diamond Bar is a great place to live and we want to send a message that we are united and intend to keep it that way. Questions? Send an email. Also, let us know it you can make it,
Sponsored by Tri Counties Democratic Club in conjunction with candidates running for 2020 elections and other organizations.

Your Support is Needed More than Ever!
My fellow Democrats,
The more we listen to our Brothers and Sisters of the Republican Party, the more we must be diligent in ensuring that our candidates for Congress, Gil Cisneros; State Senator, Josh Newman; and State Assembly, Andrew Rodriguez, are successful in riding the “Blue Wave”, straight into office. It will take work to accomplish this, and also money!
Our club, for various reasons, was unable to profit from our fundraising efforts last year and COVID 19 will prevent our usual fundraising effort this year. Therefore, I am asking you to contribute towards our contribution fund in order to give these candidates a sizable donation.
Will you consider giving $20 or more towards this effort? All donations will help these candidates to meet their financial needs. Please give more if you can afford to. to donate online via ActBlue. Or you can mail a donation to 1142 S. Diamond Bar Blvd, Ste 845, Diamond Bar, CA 91765.
Stay in touch with our website to see how you can participate in other activities. All funds raised through this event will be evenly distributed to the three candidates named in this email. Thank you. And Stay Safe!
