Welcome Everyone ! The webinar will be starting shortly.
Yes, I can see the Post-Election Recap slide.
I See the slideS
looks and sounds good.
Are we on mute?
Any jokes anybody?
Trump's presidency. That's a joke.
Katie Porter Yeah!
Praying for Gil Cisneros to pull out a win!
I'm rooting and hopeful even for TJ Cox! (If not, maybe 2020?)
Certainly a Blue Tide

Please ask questions by utilizing the Q&A function which you can find on the bottom of your screen.
yes - I will
Heidi Heitkamp - ND (D) and Claire McCaskill - MO (D) -- lost seats in Senate
Secret Dem plot to sway elections: count all the votes.
These are heartbreakers!
I agree with Wasserman.
Are there statistics on the effectiveness / relative effectiveness of these efforts?
That includes all Latino voters in the targeted districts
I found it shocking that a lot of people did not know about conditional voter registration. We trained our Last Weekend people on this, and even they didn't know.
DEFENSE. We must protect the fresh(wo)men.
what are down ballot races?
Lower races lower down on the ballot--city councils, mayors, board of education, assembly, etc.
I’d like to see Flip the 14 work to reduce barriers to voting for our likely voters and support their civic engagement

RE: survey, I would secure volunteers and funding and secure California Congressional seats and be open to expanding once these races are secured and building on the war room and cooperation with other organizations like Indivisible etc.
We only needed 2 senate seats. There had to have been some races that our efforts could have made a difference in, right?
We need to keep seeping blue from the Pacific to Nevada. Then we can turn outwards from California.
The name is so specific to 2018 mid terms … a whole big picture needs to be looked at. The network however needs to carry on!
There are many many nationally focused organisations looking at strategic elections. Instead of reaching out beyond California, what about supporting them with access to volunteers from Calirfonia? None of those organisations are going to choose the remaining CA races as strategic and yet we know, it’s going to take two years to get back the Central Valley and others.
Since you guys are mostly political consultants, any chance you can train folks on analyzing precincts, using PDI or other data software so they can run local races. (yes, it may be a long term conflict of interest…..)
Selected down ballot inside of California. District by district analysis. Build the bench. Some districts have week benches
Selected external congressional races as well, very targetted
Questions more likely to be answered if they are in the Q&A queue that way <—
For 2020, recruiting great candidates. Many outstanding candidates in 2018, need another round in 2020
Which women groups did you work with?
Totally agree, with building communities. Coming from outside the community you can only do so much. Can we help the local dems build their base? Getting the locals to become invested would seem to help, in particular the marginalized population. I canvassed some lower income areas, how to get them to feel invested in their candidates.
We'll be done when there are no republicans left in CA.

I connected with the volunteers I met while raising money and recruiting volunteers, it would be good to have projects to work on to get these folks together — even if just quarterly…to strengthen these relationships. It would be helpful to have flip the 14 design suggested plans/events to keep volunteers active and engaged. Will we be working on voter registration for 2020?
We will, but it will take a month to get the data unless you have a better source.
That's why our voter universe is published to our website.
Re: helping local Dems build their base
In canvassing around Tracy since summer of 2017 we always asked Democratic voters if they would be interested in volunteering. That helped build up the Tracy Dems.
Also want to chime in and thank you for your great work! Hopefully you can share some of your wonderful strategies with your neighbors here in Nevada! Jane G.

i actually didn’t see my question answered, but it said you did. maybe i will catch it on the video
Who is coordinating the Rock the Congress in January in NoCal?
I’m here! Just buried in fire relief efforts so paying attention with half an ear
We have started a strong Latino/Spanish Language volunteer center with some great leaders who want to help us build further. I’d like to find out now that we are post election can we work on something together. The Spanish language center we made for volunteers was great!
can you guys consider editing your video — some of these secrets are best kept amongst ourselves...
