Come canvass door-to-door in CA-07!
Saturday, August 4, 2018

Congressman Bera has won last few elections by only few thousand votes. This is a critical seat and the nearest geographic battleground District to Sonoma County! To Flip 23 net seats, we must win every race that is in jeopardy, too.

Canvasses start early in Elk Grove, CA on Saturday mornings -- in order to beat the heat. We suggest you arrive at Bera HQ 9332 Elk Grove Blvd Suite 110, Elk Grove, CA 95624 by 10 am. Each canvassing shift is about 3 hours, and we encourage you to complete a full canvass shift! You will be guided along the way by the pros; bring your own water and lunch to help you stay energized.

Make Calls About the Supreme Court Pick
Senate Republicans plan to hold a vote on the proposed appointment of Judge Kavanaugh to a lifetime position on the Supreme Court. We urge you to call your friends and family members in West Virginia, Indiana, North Dakota, Alaska, Maine, and Alabama to encourage them to call their senators.

In particular, Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski say that they aren’t hearing from many callers — so they are looking toward voting for Mr. Kavanaugh. We need you to reach out again and again to encourage your friends, family members (even relative strangers!) to make those phone calls.

Judge Kavanaugh has a difficult record on Roe v. Wade, Presidential culpability, impeachment, torture of prisoners, and  Civil Rights issues. His full record is being hidden from evaluation.

Continued calls help reinforce both Democratic and Republican Senators who prefer a moderate and thoughtful Supreme Court. Mr. Kavanaugh’s own advertising indicates that he is a ‘strict constructionist’ and therefore too rigid to find ways to apply our constitution to new situations.

Encourage your friends and family to make calls respectful and firm calls to their senators. Quiet voices have impact - let’s all call.
