Flip & Sip: NYC Wine Tasting Fundraiser to help turn PA back to Blue

Fri 25 August à 00:00

Timezone : Paris (GMT+02:00)

New York

You’re invited to ‘Flip & Sip,’ a wine tasting fundraiser in support of Kevin Madden, candidate for Delaware County (Delco) Council PA. 

Join us and do your part to help FLIP Pennsylvania back to BLUE leading up to the 2018 mid-terms and 2020!

Why should you care about Delco? Change begins at the local level:

Despite being a “purple” county, for the past 41 years, the 5-seat Delaware County Council that controls this 570,000-person county has been 100% Republican. It is the only county in PA in which at least one seat isn't guaranteed to each party.

This entrenched local Republican machinery was a strong supporter of Donald Trump in 2016 and has created significant headwind for Democratic candidates for state and federal elections in PA.

Delco is one of the key "collar counties" of the Philly suburbs, and the 5th largest in the state. For reference, Trump won PA by roughly 44,000 votes in 2016 – one county has the power to change an election.

And change is happening: for the first time ever, there are more registered Democrats than Republicans in Delco, and Donald Trump is not popular here!

Funds will be used by the campaign to fight back against the local GOP stronghold, who are projected to raise over $1,000,000 to maintain their monopoly. Yes, the stakes are this high for a local PA council election.

Wine tasting will include six wines and be led by wine expert and certified sommelier Shannon Westfall of Vinfluence. Lite bites will also be served.
