Adopt ONE
I have launched an election game on TW. Adopt-A-Candidate. Obviously support Joe! And we need the Senate, so support those campaigns! And your local candidates.

But beyond that? Let's pick a new face of DEMs of the future, and support her or him, FROM BEFORE they went to DC !!!
I have collected for you my Excellent Eleven, the T Dawg Caucus. These DEMs each attempt to take over a seat in Congress currently held by a Repulsican. Each of these 11 is a race currently rated 'toss-up' - which means we WILL win some of these, hopefully most of these!
Very simple rules of Adoption. You may only adopt one. I hope you support several and of course follow all 11. But adopt only one.

And it may not be from your home state. The object here, is to discover someone new you would not normally be exposed to. We use TW to expand DEMs
When you adopt, you let me know which of these 11 you have adopted, and give me some reason - one sentence is enough - why you like that candidate.

I will share to my Tweeps your adoption news, & we will cheer YOUR gal or guy, through November election eve & beyond

Here my 11:
