Take Back the Senate


We have great candidates running all across the country and we have to defend Senators in 10 states that Donald Trump won – so our work is cut out for us.

Since Doug Jones won the Alabama Seat, Democrats only need to pick up 2 seats to regain control.

We can’t do this without the support from you and thousands of others!

Jon Tester

Senator Jon Tester from Montana is in a tight race for re-election. In a state that Trump won by 20% — Jon needs our help.

President Trump went to Montana to campaign for his opponent.

Trump is doing everything he can to defeat Senator Tester and we need to pull out all the stops to help Jon win.

Montana is a red state for sure, but if we defend it, we can keep Senator Tester in the Senate.
That’s what 21st Century Democrats is committed to do.

Amy Klobuchar

Amy Klobuchar told Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” that the confirmation process for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is “anything but normal.”

It’s not normal because there are 100,000 documents that the Trump Administration – won’t release.

What are they hiding? And why are they hiding?
These are papers when he served in the George W. Bush White House.
Once again the GOP are standing in the way of transparent hearing.

Senator Klobuchar has always been a fighter.

That’s why she needs our support.

Sherrod Brown

Ohio has become a very tough state for Democrats to win and the GOP are targeting this Senate seat – which they think they can win.

That’s why we are putting all our efforts to help re-elect Senator Sherrod Brown next November.

Right now this race is too close to call and the Koch brothers are pouring money into the state.

Sherrod has been a leader on health care arguing that Americans should not live just one illness or pink slip away from bankruptcy because of out of control health care costs.

We’ve seen Democrats win in states that normally go Red and Democrats need to pay more attention to – and not take anything for granted.
