Show your support, make a pledge, and help convince your favorite Democrat to run for President in 2020!


DemStarter is a project of Left Action, with two goals: 1) Show potential Democratic candidates how much support they would have if they decided to run (and help convince them to take the plunge); 2) Give the eventual Democratic nominee a head start by taking pledges that can quickly be turned into donations once the campaign begins.

Here's how it works:

  1. Visit the DemStarter home page
  2. Click on the potential candidate or candidates you'd like to see run, and fill in the amount you'd pledge to donate if they decide to run. You are not making a payment now, just a pledge. 
  3. If the potential candidate announces they are running, we will let you know where you can go to fulfill your pledge, and make a donation. 

So if you have a candidate you'd like to see run, show them your support, and make it easier for them to do it!
