What to do with one day to go.
So. The election’s tomorrow. You’re going to vote, if you haven’t already; and you’ve helped out in your local state/district/county. But you’ve maybe got a spare $20 or a couple of hours… and, honestly, nobody in your regular slate of candidates needs it. Yes, of course, every little bit helps – but, honestly, they’re all fine. Really. You’d think that you can maybe splurge a little and give somebody a political treat.
OK, here’s what you do then. A while back, the NRCC put up a map of every Republican running for Congress, broken down by first state, and then Congressional district. It has been an amazingly useful resource for me, by the way: to give just one example, having it handy allowed me to quickly track down challengers in suddenly-competitive districts (and there have been a lot of those this cycle). The NRCC absolutely needs to keep this feature in future election cycles, by the way… but I digress. Anyway, click on the map more or less at random, look for a blue-colored district in whatever state that you end up in, and click through to the challenger’s website*. If you like what you see, dispense largess as you see fit. Trust me, they’ll be glad to get the money and/or time.
And you never know. We’re going to have a lot of close elections. Maybe it’ll be your help that makes the difference.
