- Midterm Elections
Build Back Better -COMING SOON if you fight for it!
The results in Virginia this week were a wake up call for our party. Despite our earnest efforts and hard work, we came up short! Which is why over the coming weeks, we’ll be digging into the numbers. But one thing is clear: if we want to continue building back better, we have our work cut out for us.
Despite the outcome in Virginia, there is still plenty of reason to hope. We turned out a record number of voters in the commonwealth. In fact, the last time Virginia saw voter turnout this high for a gubernatorial election was in 1997. That is impressive in its own right.
Democrats also secured historic victories nationwide. Governor Phil Murphy became the first Democrat in nearly 45 years to win a second term in New Jersey. Michelle Wu will be the first woman, person of color, and Asian American to be elected mayor of Boston. Abdullah Hammoud will be the first Arab American to be mayor of Dearborn. The list goes on…
The journey to build this nation back better continues. We’ll dust ourselves off and get back to work like we always do. Because what we’re fighting for is bigger than any one of us. What we’re fighting for matters.

The fight against COVID-19:
New FDA authorization
We have reached a turning point in our battle against COVID-19: After rigorous review, the CDC and FDA have authorized a safe, effective vaccine for children ages 5-11. It will allow parents to end months of anxious worrying about their kids — and is a major step forward in our fight to defeat the virus.
The Biden-Harris administration has already secured enough supply for every child in America. Kids will be able to get a vaccine at one of tens of thousands of locations, including pharmacies, pediatricians’ offices, schools, and more.
Taking action on climate
President Biden traveled to Scotland this week to meet with world leaders at the United Nations Climate Change Conference. He unveiled a U.S. Methane Emissions Reduction Plan that will:
Combating climate change is not just our moral obligation. It is an economic imperative. The future will belong to those who act now to harness the power of a clean energy economy.
That’s why President Biden’s Build Back Better Framework aims to tackle the climate crisis. It sets a goal of reaching a 100% carbon pollution-free power sector by 2035, includes clean energy rebates for consumers, and invests in clean U.S. manufacturing.
Honoring Native American Heritage Month
To celebrate the countless contributions and accomplishments of Native Americans and Alaska Natives in America, the DNC partnered with artist A’máy Tádits (Hail) to create a t-shirt in honor of Native American Heritage Month.
For centuries, the promise of our nation has been denied to the first peoples of this continent — Native Americans. During Native American Heritage Month, we recommit to strengthening Tribal sovereignty and advancing Tribal self-determination. All proceeds from this t-shirt will be used to support Democrats running for office up and down the ballot who are dedicated to doing just the same.
