Endorsed candidates who lost: Shelley Berkley (NV-Sen), Rob Zerban (WI-1), Manan Trivedi (PA-06), David Gill (IL-13), Nate Shinagawa (NY-23), Joe Miklosi (CO-06), Jefferson Smith (Portland, Oregon - Mayor), Jessica King (WI-Senate-18)

With our help, Rob Zerban held Paul Ryan to his narrowest margin ever! This makes Ryan more vulnerable going forward.

1. We gained more than that.

We sent Tammy Duckworth, Cheri Bustos and Foster to Congress in Illinois. All are replacing repubbies. I think there are more, too.
