Crooked Los Angeles

Crooked Media and Swing Left are introducing Friends of the Pod to their closest Swing District as part of the new Pod Save America tour.

Swing Left is building a movement to take back the House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections. More than 300,000 people have already signed up to support the Democratic nominees in those races in 65 Swing Districts across the country. You can help, too:

Donate to defeat Steve Knight in CA-25 (Santa Clarita, Simi Valley, Palmdale, Lancaster)

Donate to defeat Ed Royce in CA-39 (Fullerton, Yorba Linda, etc)

Donate to defeat Mimi Walters in CA-45 (Irvine and surroundings)

Donate to defeat Dana Rohrabacher in CA-48 (Huntington Beach, Seal Beach)

Donate to defeat Darrell Issa in CA-49 (Oceanside, Southern Orange County)


Why These Districts?

People think of California as a solidly blue state, but in fact there are a lot of CA districts held by Republicans who are voting in lockstep with Donald Trump and Paul Ryan--whether it’s to take away our health care or cut taxes for the wealthiest households and biggest corporations.

There are nine Swing Districts in California in total on Swing Left’s map— which means that Californians can play an outsize role in helping flip the House. Six of those districts are located within driving distance of Los Angeles. One of those districts is held by a Democrat, five are held by Republicans—and all voted for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump. These are some of the most flippable races in the 2018 midterms. Learn more with our District Primers for CA-25, CA-39, CA-45, CA-48, and CA-49. Sign up with our District Teams in CA-25, CA-39, CA-45, CA-48, or CA-49 to get emails with more actionable ways to help.
