Meet the four candidates we’re supporting with digital ads right now:

As I recently mentioned, we've endorsed 28 candidates in 12 states ahead of Tuesday's election. They run the gamut from social workers to nurses, teachers to law enforcement professionals, and more.

Today, I want to tell you about four of them. We are supporting these four with digital ads—doing our part to push them over the line to victory.

PHOTO: Elizabeth GuzmanElizabeth Guzman is a professional social worker running for re-election to the Virginia legislature.

She has been a powerful advocate for schools, named 2020's legislator of the year by the Virginia Education Association, and a champion for working people across Virginia.

PHOTO: Phil ArmstrongPhil Armstrong spent 40 years as a public school teacher, and he's now running for re-election as the county executive in Lehigh County, Pennsylvania.

Known as an accessible community leader whose door is always open, he has led the county's COVID response, brought social workers into the public defender's office, and improved services to homeless veterans.

PHOTO: Scotty JohnsonScotty Johnson is a retired police officer running for city council in Cincinnati, Ohio.

If elected, he'll join a new mayor and a mostly-new city council—and he'll focus on improving housing affordability, creating jobs in the wake of the pandemic, and ensuring public safety in neighborhoods across Cincinnati.

PHOTO: Henry YanezHenry Yanez is a retired firefighter, running for city council in Sterling Heights, Michigan. He's working every day to make his community a great place to live, work, and start a small business.

So, why these four candidates? Well, for starters, they're frontline public service professionals making a critical difference in their communities.

But beyond that, they're all in important swing states—Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan. If we're going to build strong Democratic majorities, these are among the places we need to do it.

I really appreciate all you've done for Democrats Serve. Your support means a lot to me. Chip in now to help supercharge our program.

We're going to make a big difference in the weeks and months ahead—we're just getting started!
