One week to elect some terrific democrats:

Across America, terrific Democratic candidates are running to take back Congress from the extremist wing of the Republican party. To be a check on Donald Trump's lawlessness.

It's no surprise that this revolution comes with a record number of women leading the charge; their strength and commitment are fueling the blue wave. These incredible leaders show nothing but courage to serve in Washington, the compassion to win the heart of the people, and the fire to take back the House from the special interests.

As the Chair of the New Democrats, I'm proud to be working hard to elect some great candidates across America.

Here are a few locked in tight races that need your support right now:

A retired Naval Commander and a small business owner, Elaine Luria was putting up a remarkable fight to flip this seat even before news broke of a special prosecutor's investigation into potential voter fraud at the hands of Rep. Taylor's campaign staff. Now, internal polling from the campaign shows Elaine up as voters lose trust in their current Congressman. This race will still require a significant push to unseat the incumbent, and remains a tossup.

Attorney Lizzie Fletcher is running a strong campaign against Republican Rep. John Culberson in this suburban Houston district. Lizzie has dramatically outraised Rep. Culberson by more than 2-to-1 ratio in the last six months. Now, polls show a tight contest in a race The Atlantic called "the future of Texas politics." High turnout was already expected in the Houston suburbs, which will only be strengthened by the presence of Rep. Beto O'Rourke's bid for the U.S. Senate at the top of the ticket.

As a local water attorney and former staffer for Sen. Tom Udall, Xochitl Torres Small has a great understanding of the needs of this rural New Mexico district. Republican state Rep. Yvette Herrell won a primary election to replace outgoing Representative Steve Pearce and, since then, has been dogged by charges that she used her state office for personal gain. Polling shows a consistently tight race in this Republican district.

Please donate today and let's elect these fantastic Democrats.
