Swing Left formed after the 2016 Election and is dedicated to winning back Congress in 2018. The strategy is to build “campaigns in waiting,” with lead time and advance resources for 70 competitive districts. Unlike most campaigns that fundraise and recruit volunteers late in the cycle, Swing Left does year-round election organizing, relying on voter contact, candidate fundraising, and cultural mobilization. Swing Left captures liberal resources and energy elsewhere to apply inside competitive Congressional races.
