Over 135,000 voters

    JOHN, You may have seen by now that the results of yesterday’s election did not go our way. I am processing the outcome and feeling a range of emotions and reactions…but more than anything, I want you to know that I am filled with gratitude and pride.  How can I no…

I am so grateful—for you, for this journey

    JOHN, From the moment I announced my decision to run for the United States House of Representatives, I took a huge leap of faith. Running for office can be isolating. The minute you announce you’re running for public office, you hit the ground running and never sto…

Wagner caught in a lie about birth control

    JOHN, Politics can be complicated, but there’s one maxim that is simple and easy to follow: don’t lie. Children are taught that lying is wrong from a young age. If you lie to your employer, or to the government, for example, there are serious consequences—you can b…

The Pence/Wagner agenda for America:

    JOHN, Mike Pence and other anti-choice GOP leaders have been rallying to turn out as many voters as they can to gain control of Congress. If they win, you can expect to see them pursue a national abortion ban, as Pence has openly broadcasted (saying the quiet part …

Unmasking the real Ann Wagner

    JOHN, It's nearly Election Day, which means that it is high time for Congresswoman Ann Wagner to collect choice photo ops with other politicians, take pictures of herself walking in the middle of a suburban street laughing with her team, and posing with people at t…

11 days left to win this fight

    JOHN, In 2019, Trish flipped an "unwinnable" state house seat. The way we made that happen then was the way we will do the same thing this year: building a grassroots army of people who are desperate to see Missouri change for the better who go out and knock doors …

"It’s putting my life in danger."

    JOHN, This election is about so much: protecting basic civil rights like voting, reproductive freedom and bodily autonomy, the cost of living for American families, and safeguarding free and fair elections. There is so much at stake, it can seem overwhelming at tim…

My message to Ann Wagner

    JOHN, Congresswoman Ann Wagner has represented Missouri’s Second Congressional District for 10 years. Ten. Years. A decade is long enough to learn how the D.C. political machine works, right? It’s why it’s sometimes shocking to see tweets like this from her. Someo…

Join the team and help flip this district

    JOHN, When voters are represented by a politician who never shows up, doesn't listen to their concerns, and pretends to care for a few months every election year, they lose faith in government. They begin to think that all politicians are like this, that they only …

Where is Wagner when we need help?

    JOHN, Here’s a secret you may not know about me: I love meeting voters and showing up for people. I discovered my love of community service and organizing through the church a long time ago, but learned how much I love political campaigning when I flipped my Missou…

One voter at a time

    JOHN, There’s an old saying in politics: You win campaigns one voter at a time. I had the chance to meet a voter in Eureka, who pulled me aside to ask me why I deserved their vote.  Honestly, there isn’t a fairer question that a voter could ask of me. And I do so…

The final FEC deadline before Election Day

    JOHN, We’re so close to defeating Ann Wagner in November. We’re so close to helping keep Kevin McCarthy out of the Speaker’s office, keeping Jim Jordan from chairing the House Judiciary committee, and ensuring that the January 6th Committee isn’t disbanded to appea…

No desperate pleas or pressure tactics, we promise!

The GOP National Abortion Ban

Trish's birthday bash—You're invited!

    JOHN, Missouri is nationally known for electing some of the worst people in politics. Eric Greitens and Josh Hawley quickly come to mind. But make no mistake: our very own Ann Wagner is completely out of touch with voters in MO-02—voting to keep insulin prices high…

Law enforcement vs. Wagner & NRA...who wins?

Actually fighting for workers

Wagner chooses MAGA over country...again
