CA 2018 Primary Results

Last night, we saw the results of our tireless GOTV work at the Westside Democratic HQ. After 40,000 phone calls, thousands of doors knocked, and several in-district rallies, Democrats advanced to the Top Two in all of our targeted House districts! Thank you to the staff and volunteers of the Westside Democratic HQ for their hard work in making this happen! We are taking two days off at the HQ, and then on Friday it’s back to work for the general election!
