There are 23 Republican-held U.S. Senate seats up for election this year.
Democrats only need to flip FOUR to take back the senate.
PinkWave is endorsing the following four pro-reproductive right, democratic women to flip those seats:
Sara is running for U.S. Senate in the State of Maine. She is running to defeat Susan Collins, who cast the deciding vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Kavanaugh then voted to overturn precedent and attack reproductive freedom. Sara Gideon, currently the Maine Speaker of the House, led her state's legislature to pass laws ensuring that every Mainer has affordable access to reproductive care.
Sara believes that every woman has the right to make her own health care decisions, and as senator, will will fight to protect our reproductive rights. Please donate to her campaign here.
“Sen. Cornyn and his D.C. boss Mitch McConnell are terrified of the campaign we’ve built,” she said confidently in a letter to her supporters. MJ Hegar, a decorated former Air Force helicopter pilot, is backed by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
M.J. supports federal law codifying Roe v. Wade so that reproductive rights are not subject to the whims of an increasingly partisan court system. "Politicians should not legislate a woman’s most intimate decisions." Donate to M.J. Hegar's campaign here.
Teresa opposes the privatization of Social Security & Medicare as they are crucial to the livelihoods of countless Iowans. Her strategy in making these programs the cornerstone platform to her campaign has put her ahead in the polls in a state that narrowly voted for Trump in 2016. It's time to retire Joni Ernst, her opponent who often toes the line with Trump.

In summer 2018, Senate Republican leaders removed her from her leadership position on the Senate health committee for endorsing Democrat Sharice Davids over 3rd District Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder. Months later, Bollier left the Republican Party. Bollier is an outspoken supporter of Medicaid expansion, and for three years was the main sponsor of legislation that would allow judges to temporarily take guns away from people determined to be risks to themselves or others, known as “red flag” laws.
Barbara supports lowering the cost of healthcare, defending public education, acting on climate change, and preserving a woman’s right to making her own reproductive decisions. Donate to her campaign here.

As a part of the sweeping wave of women elected to Congress in 2018, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell fights to end gender discrimination in the areas of education, employment, health care, and all other spheres.
