The FDF team is heading to Georgia. We must Save the Senate. Are you with us?
Despite what the Democrats were promising and pollsters were predicting, last week was not a "Blue Wave." Not by a long shot.
In fact, all across America Conservatives won and the Conservative movement was broadened.
As of this morning, 9 seats in the U.S. House flipped from Democrat to Republican, giving Democrats even a narrower majority. Just yesterday, the House Minority Leader predicted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi may not even have enough votes to be re-elected Speaker.
Republicans gained control of 3 state houses, keeping Republicans in firm control of more than half of state houses across America.
In addition, Black Americans voted for President Trump in historic numbers.
And now we have nearly 30 pro-life women elected to serve in the House of Representatives. Plus, 2 brand-new shining stars in the Black Conservative movement in the North Carolina Lt. Governor-elect Mark Robinson and U.S. Representative-elect Bryon Donalds from Florida.
Robert, I truly believe this is because of all that we have done.
In fact, I've never been prouder of our team and our Fredrick Douglass Foundation (FDF) volunteers across the country.
All told, we knocked on more than 75,000 doors in Ohio, 50,000 in Wisconsin, 50,000 in Texas, and nearly 50,000 in Michigan.
For weeks leading up to the election, our team was motivated to keep pressing forward despite weather setbacks and even threats, like in Pastor Joel's case.
But now, we're going to have to launch a massive effort that I didn't plan for in the 2 U.S. Senate races in the Georgia Run-Off Election scheduled for Tuesday, January 5th.
Truly, we must Save the Senate and ensure Republicans maintain control.
If we don't step up, Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer will do all that they can to...
Pack the Supreme Court -- ensuring that our pro-life majority disappears and Roe will never be threatened.
Reverse the Hyde Amendment -- forcing all Americans to pay for abortions in all 9 months of pregnancy
Roll Back Key Religious Freedom Protections -- forcing Americans of faith and conscience to violate deeply held beliefs in order to practice medicine or provide healthcare for their employees
Robert, I lived in Georgia for almost a decade and am proud to say I was part of the movement to flip the Georgia state legislature from Democrat to Republican. We helped elect a record number of Black Conservatives to the state house.
I know we can win because we know the state.
Thank you so much for your support during this crucial time, and I have great hope that we will be victorious….because we know He has already won the victory for us!
In His Service,
Rev. Dean Nelson Chairman, Frederick Douglass Foundation
P.S. – I've budgeted out all of our costs and expenses for the next month for our 100,000 Doors to Save the Senate campaign, and the great news is I believe it will only cost $1.50 per door, per family we reach with our volunteers. Can you pitch in right now?
