CA-BAM! will use innovative research and campaign tactics to engage the electorate and mobilize voters in the fight against congressional Republicans and the Trump agenda. Right now, CA-BAM! is polling in key congressional districts to identify winnable seats and candidates, develop comprehensive independent expenditure campaigns to elect Democrats and take back the House.
CA-BAM! will roll out polling data in red-to-blue House districts in Southern California before moving on to other red districts across the country. In addition to identifying and exploiting the Republicans’ vulnerabilities through issue contrast, CA-BAM! seeks to identify the strongest Democratic candidates to win red seats and help catapult those candidates through the Democratic primary.
Newly released polling from CA-BAM! shows Rep. Steve Knight is highly vulnerable, with voters in CA-25 highly receptive to the innovative playbook that helped elect U.S. Senator Doug Jones in Alabama.
