Fuse Washington focuses on getting the issues our members care about - not our name - into newspaper articles, televisions coverage and blog updates. In this section you will find press releases, links to articles about the issues Fuse and its members are working hard on and a little shameless self-promotion (coverage of Fuse as an organization rather than its campaigns).
One year ago today, MAGA militants stormed the Capitol in a deadly and shocking attempt to overturn the will of the people. Incited by then-President Trump and his fellow Republicans, they stormed the capitol in an attempt to overturn our election then tried to cover up their role in this violence. They failed, but Republican legislatures across the country are working overtime to make sure they won’t fail the next time around.
Although some of last week’s election headlines are pretty rough, here at Fuse we’re encouraged by the dozens of progressive candidates who won local races in every corner of the state. Many of them defeated far-right opponents. This diverse slate of candidates represents the future of our movement and many of them will be on our ballots again seeking higher office in the years to come.
