The MI Elections Team says,"It's Lauren Underwood Week!"
The Cook Political Report just changed their rating in IL-14 from "Lean R" to "Toss Up." Let's flip the district and give Lauren a victory in Nov. 6th!

We encourage you to send the Underwood campaign some dollars by donating here, and join us on Thursday, October 18, from 6:30-8:30 pm at First Parish in Lexington for our weekly "Flip the House with Minuteman Indivisible," an MI Activism Event. We'll be phonebanking, texting, and postcarding for Lauren. Be sure to bring your laptop/tablet, charging cord, phone, and earbuds. Donations of postcard stamps are also appreciated.
