A Democrat won in a Red State

A Democrat beat a Republican for Congress in a red state

 A Democratic Win in Alaska

Yes, its true,  Republicans have controlled the lone congressional seat in Alaska for 49 years and last night it was won by Democrat Mary Peltola beating Republican Sarah Palin.

So why am I talking about Alaska when I live in Georgia?  If Alaska, a red state, can elect a Democrat, so can Georgia!  We can do it up and down the ticket. 

Early voting starts October 17, 2022 and we need to be prepared.  Check your registration and encourage your family and friends to get registered to vote.  Help get them to vote.

Here are some other ways you can help make our elections successful.
