We endorse the best.

Candidates who are endorsed by Way to Lead can receive direct funding from our federal Hybrid PAC and state PACs, and support from our community.

Through our affiliated state PACs, we endorse and give directly to candidates up and down the ballot in Way to Win’s targeted state strategy who are the new wave of leadership in governance, and who Way to Win-funded organizations are supporting. Way to Lead also supports Democrats across the country in federal elections, in primaries when they are challenging Democrats who are blocking our progressive governance vision, and in general elections when they can add to our collective power. See our full list of endorsed candidates below.

Give to Individual Candidate by State

We've set up tandem ActBlue giving pages for 10 core Plan to Win states that will evenly distribute funds among all Way to Lead endorsed candidates at the state, local, and federal level in that state. Use the Sort by State filter to jump between states to view who is endorsed and click the link to the right to support those candidates.

Give to Close Federal Candidates

While the bulk of our funding goes to core states, we are also tracking important and close federal races across the country in states like Arkansas, California, and Illinois. Those races with progressive candidates on the margins of winning need an extra boost. Supporting this tandem ActBlue will move money directly to the Way to Lead PAC as well as directly to candidates like Joyce Elliot, Wendy Davis, and Georgette Gomez.

Give to All Battleground States through Way to Lead

Donating to Way to Lead State Power Committee supports our ability to endorse and support down-ballot progressive champions from County Commissioner to Congressmembers, independent organizations' PAC programs instate to win elections and build power, and scaled narrative campaigns pushing out effective messages and advertising needed to move millions of "high potential" voters in key states. Donate here to support all of those efforts.
