2020 Super State Strategy
To transform our government in 2020 by flipping the White House, the Senate, and the state houses key to rolling back Republican gerrymandering.
Our opportunity: the "Super States"
Last cycle, Swing Left pointed you towards your closest Swing District as the most effective place to focus your volunteer time and donations. And everybody is familiar with Swing States. But the 2020 cycle is giving us something new and exciting: what we’re calling the "Super States."
If you overlay the target maps, the most important battles to win the White House, the Senate, and the once-in-a-decade fight to control redistricting are concentrated in the same few states.
By focusing on them, we can maximize the impact of our efforts, working on many or all of these important contests at the same time.

How we'll win
We’ll win in these Super States by focusing our efforts on two tactics we know win elections: raising early money for candidates and engaging voters. And both can be done virtually, from wherever you live.
Contacting registered voters and encouraging them to turn out to vote on or before Election Day is one of the most important things we can do to win the Super States. With COVID-19, millions of Americans are projected to vote absentee for the first time, or vote early to avoid crowded polling places—which means we need to reach voters earlier than usual.
For the safety of our volunteers and communities, all Swing Left voter contact is being done remotely this year. That means, even if you live far away from a Super State, you can make calls to voters, or send handwritten letters to voters with Vote Forward.
This year, voting isn't enough
It's more important than ever to help as many folks as possible turn out to vote—early, by mail, or on November 3. We're making it easy to virtually connect with voters in key states in order to swing the Senate, beat Trump, and turn state legislatures blue.

Raising money for candidates
Early money can make a huge difference in winning elections. After candidates win the primary, they need immediate funds to hire staff and buy ads as they pivot to confront their Republican opponent. It’s how we made sure our nominees in 2018 started the general election strong.
Swing Left grassroots donors have already raised more than $3.5 million for key Senate races and $3 million for target state legislative races. Now, in the final weeks of the election cycle, it's critical to give to the closest races that need our dollars most.
Donate to make an immediate impact.
Donations to the Immediate Impact Fund go to the candidates in the closest races where your donation can make the biggest difference, on the path to flipping the Senate and winning key state legislative races.
