Help Flippable Support Democrats in State Elections in 2019

Help Flippable support Democratic candidates in state elections in 2019.


Recently we at OTYCD asked you to see if you have state or local elections in 2019.


If you don’t (or, hey, if you do and you have the bandwidth to take on more), and you’re up for helping win elections elsewhere in America, throw your weight behind the work of Flippable.


We at OTYCD have written about Flippable and its work before. It aims to help elect Democrats at the state level, which helps flip legislatures blue.


One of Flippable’s first great successes was the 2017 legislative elections in Virginia. Flippable and the Virginia Democrats wildly overperformed, coming within a coin flip of controlling the state’s House of Delegates–no one predicted that.


The winners included Elizabeth Guzman, Kathy Tran, Hala Ayala, David Reid, Cheryl Turpin, Jennifer Carroll Foy, and Danica Roem, to whom we also devoted a Believe It: You Matter post, because she’s just that awesome.


You can help any one of those defending incumbents in Virginia by looking up their campaign websites and giving them some money.


You can also donate to Flippable and its work helping get Democrats elected and re-elected in key states. Virginia is one of five focus states in 2019. Having done so ridiculously well in 2017, Flippable hopes to defend its wins and build on them to turn Virginia’s legislature properly blue in November.

GOOD UPDATE! Democrat David Reid WON A Seat In The Virginia State Legislature

This OTYCD entry originally posted in September 2017.


YES YES YES! Per Flippable, Democrat David Reid won his race for a seat in the Virginia state senate. Hooray!


Original text of this post follows.


Support Democrat David Reid, who is running for a seat in the Virginia state House of Delegates.


Flippable, the organization created after the 2016 elections to focus on state and local elections, has identified the state of Virginia as, well, flippable. All 100 seats in its House of Delegates are up for grabs on November 7, 2017.


We at OTYCD hope to prep and post items on the five Virginia candidates in the districts that Flippable has deemed most worthy of your time and money.


Reid spent some of his formative years in a children’s home and became the first in his family to graduate from college. He served in the U.S. Navy Reserve from 1988 to 2011, retiring as a commander.


He wants to expand Medicaid and implement full-day kindergarten for all children living in Loudon County. Having financed his college education with Pell grants, scholarships, and work-study earnings, he wants to fight tuition rises and find ways to make college more affordable. He fully supports reproductive rights, very much including the right to choose. He wants to end partisan gerrymandering. He supports gun safety measures, including mental health checks, universal background checks, and restricting access for people convicted of domestic violence. He would fight animal abuse and cruelty.
