Commitment. Dedication. Hard work. Virginia 2017 and Alabama 2017 prove it; when Democrats talk to voters, when Democrats put in the work, Democrats win! #organize always. Well done, Alabama — now lets keep this wave rolling across the entire nation!

Please take note: One of the main reasons we did so well in VA is we had volunteers inside the commonwealth & across the country working hard for our candidates for months.
The same happened in Alabama.
Your volunteer efforts matter so much. Please keep it going in ’18 & ’19!

Last night, Alabama voted for self respect and against bigotry.

And how was that winning combination put together? With help from groups all over the country-phone calls, donations, personal outreach to Alabamians from family & friends-supporting & amplifying the work of @GDouglasJones' campaign on the ground. First VA, now AL. #KeepItGoing https://t.co/udGtz4NNdQ
