  • Flippable

    Their mission is to turn America blue by building a movement to flip seats. They focus on state races, which play a huge role in national elections but are often overlooked. Information about these races is hard to find, and busy people don’t have the time to sift through it. Flippable tells you which races are more important, who’s running, and how you can support them.
