Philadelphia -- Online and in the media, Pennsylvania's Republican state legislators are signaling their intention to interfere with the process of counting and certifying the result of the 2020 election.

Up to Us

In 2016, Trump won Pennsylvania by just 44,292 votes. In the wake of the election, Pennsylvanians of all races came together, not just in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, but in towns and small cities across the state. Since then, we've made tremendous gains, building one of the most powerful independent political organizations in the country. In the June primary, our organization recruited and supported powerful champions for working people to take on the political establishment—and we won.

Now, as we head into the general election, we're unveiling a slate of 26 endorsed candidates for the state legislature and big plans to defeat Donald Trump in Pennsylvania and put Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House.
