UPDATE: The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled against Madison Cawthorn and held that the 14th Amendment can be used to disqualify insurrectionists and those who gave them "aid and comfort" from office!

This is terrible news for anyone who could be potentially implicated in the events of January 6th – like Doug Mastriano, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, Paul Gosar, and of course, Donald Trump.

That’s not all – over 600 state Republican legislators were complicit in the lead-up to the January 6th insurrection, either through spreading misinformation, encouraging overturning the presidential election results or by being at the “Stop the Steal” rally – which means they could be next.

But this ruling could be tested by the Supreme Court – so we're polling local Democrats for their opinion.

Do you think insurrectionists should be banned from running for office?



Republican lawmakers have spent more than a YEAR downplaying the violence of that day and Trump's involvement – but the federal court's ruling means that the people responsible for inciting terrible violence on January 6th, 2021 can still be held accountable.

Still, this ruling could be further challenged in court by going all the way to the conservative-leaning Supreme Court.

So before this goes any further, please let us know if you think insurrectionists should be banned from running for office >>

Waiting on your response,


Sula, despite the fact that most voters in most states support reproductive freedom, more than half of all states have either already banned abortion or are poised to severely limit abortion access:

"[A] majority of the public in about 40 states supports legal abortion rights. … [But] analysis of polling data suggests that more Americans will live under an abortion policy that is out of step with their preferences, with consequences for democratic representation.”
– The Washington Post

You might be wondering how lawmakers in so many states can get away with passing draconian laws most of their constituents don’t want. Unfortunately, the answer is simple: Gerrymandering.

At the NDRC, we’re working to return power to voters by fighting for fair maps and electing leaders who will defend democracy. Will you pitch in now to support our work to end GOP gerrymandering?

Because of gerrymandering, Republicans in swing states have been able to win a majority of state legislative seats while earning only a minority of votes. This gives the GOP power to pass far-right legislation while shielding them from consequences at the ballot box.

That’s why the NDRC is fighting back to defend our democracy. We’ve targeted races in 17 states across the country that will have an impact on the future of fair maps. If we can win these races, we can achieve a future where a majority of voters once again have the power to shape policy in their states – including policy on abortion rights.

There are dozens of races and so much other work where we need to make investments, which means we’ll need a lot of resources. Can the NDRC count on your support to help power all our critical work?

Thank you so much,


A.G. Holder: If the NDRC is successful in undoing manipulated maps, we will be able to achieve a system in which everyone's vote counts.
Since 2017, the NDRC has executed a comprehensive redistricting strategy that shifts the redistricting power, creating fair districts where Democrats can compete. Our victories have been made possible by our strong community of grassroots supporters.

The president of one of the biggest anti-choice groups in the country, Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America just issued a chilling warning in Axios:

Her group will work to ban abortion “in every state and in every legislature, including Congress.” It’s what she’s calling “the culmination of almost 50 years of work.”

Last month’s Supreme Court verdict was the result of DECADES of groundwork by anti-choice activists. So now, it’s up to grassroots activists like you to stand together and fight for our rights.

The DLCC is committed to electing Democrats to state legislatures to save abortion access – they’re now our last line of defense against anti-choice Republicans. But we need to fight back harder than ever.

So we’re asking: Will you chip in $7 or anything you can right away to support the DLCC and help elect more state Democrats who are champions for abortion rights and reproductive healthcare?

This anti-abortion group is notorious for its ties to many top Republicans, including Donald Trump and Mike Pence. The network of GOP power won’t waste any time or spare any resources fighting for state-by-state abortion bans. In fact, they are already scheming with state Republicans to do exactly that, now that the most conservative Supreme Court in modern history has given them the green light to destroy abortion rights.

With state legislatures being our last line of defense against anti-abortion rights legislation, we need your support more than ever. Please chip in whatever you can right away to power candidates who are committed to protecting and expanding abortion rights.

Thanks for being in this fight,
