After Knocking 8.7 Million Doors, For Our Future Congratulates Midterm Winners

For Our Future is proud to have played a critical role in the progressive gains in Congress, among state legislatures, and in Governors races throughout the country last night. After knocking its first door in February 2018, For Our Future knocked on 8,694,951 doors and held 1,313,878 conversations with voters about the critical issues.

Among the races that For Our Future and its partners was involved in, progressives won 18 Congressional districts, 13 of them pickups. For Our Future’s work in the Midwest helped pick up 3 governors races and take down Scott Walker, a Republican incumbent who slashed education funding. For Our Future was a key driver of historic voter turnout in Nevada that swept in a slate of progressive candidates, and in Florida, 1.4 million Floridians are now able to cast a ballot. And For Our Future’s work helped to end the supermajority in Pennsylvania Senate and Michigan Senate.

“After a great night, we want to congratulate the incredible candidates that For Our Future worked for day in and day out throughout the year,” said Justin Myers, CEO of For Our Future. “After knocking on 8.7 million doors and having 1.3 million conversations with voters on the issues that matter, we are proud to have played a part in turning out the vote for these progressive champions that will stand up for working families, access to health care, quality education, immigrants, and our environment. We will expand our wins by remaining in our states, engaging in important issue and policy debates within our communities and we will be ready for 2020.”
