Election Day may be over, but the wins for CWAers and all working families keep rolling in as election results are finalized!
On Wednesday, the election was called for Democratic congressional candidate Andy Kim, who beat incumbent Tom MacArthur in New Jersey's 3rd District. CWA members in New Jersey worked hard to get out the vote to defeat MacArthur, who made it his mission to try to eliminate coverage for preexisting conditions and allow higher premiums for older Americans. He was the only member of Congress from New Jersey – Democrat or Republican – to vote for Trump's corporate tax cut bill, which provided huge tax breaks to the rich while resulting in increased overall taxes to many residents in New Jersey.

In Arizona, Democrat Kyrsten Sinema defeated Republican Martha McSally in the U.S. Senate election. CWA members and retirees regularly phone banked and text banked for Sinema – calling union members and talking to them about how she would be a strong voice for working families in the Senate.
