WASHINGTON, D.C. — Indivisible Action announced the addition of nine new candidates to the organization’s “Give No Ground” majority protection program (see: CNN, Forbes) that is providing support and directing grassroots volunteer power towards some of the most competitive midterm races in the country. These races are crucial to Democrats maintaining the trifecta power and achieving their agenda in 2023.
In addition to the ten existing candidates, Indivisible’s Give No Ground program will now be supporting: :
- Josh Riley, NY-19
- Jevin Hodge, AZ-01
- Will Rollins, CA-41
- Kim Schrier, WA-08
- Tom Malinowski, NJ-07
- Marie Gluesenkamp Perez, WA-03
- Mary Peltola, AK-AL
- Kristen Engel, AZ-06
- Cheri Beasley, NC-Sen
"In the homestretch of this midterm, it’s essential we support high-value races to prevent extremist Republicans from seizing Congress and waging a war on reproductive freedom and democracy. Across the country, MAGA candidates are running on an anti-choice, anti-voter platform. If we lose these key races, they will pass a national abortion ban and set the stage for a Trump return in 2024.,” said Dani Negrete, Political Director for Indivisible. “We’re thrilled to add these nine candidates to our Give No Ground program – not only because they are qualified and believe in our democracy, but because we believe they can defeat MAGA extremism in their communities by inspiring hope and turning voters out to the polls."
Give No Ground is an Indivisible program aimed at maintaining Democratic majority in the House and Senate by mobilizing the national activist network behind competitive races across the country through providing resources to counter right-wing radicals locally and direct voter contact tools and support to knock doors, make calls, and send texts to get out the vote to millions of low-propensity voters Democrats need to win the midterms.
Unlike Indivisible’s endorsement program, which supports candidates who are champions for progressive causes, Give No Ground supports candidates that are in varying places on the Democratic ideological spectrum. Give No Ground candidates are chosen based on factors related to the competitiveness of their races. They have not necessarily sought Indivisible’s support, and their inclusion in the program does not indicate their alignment on every issue.
