Cards Against Humanity offering midterm expansion pack in effort to back Dems in key races

The creators of the popular party game, Cards Against Humanity, are offering an expansion pack focused on the midterm elections in an effort to boost Democrats in key races. 

“We’ve decided to get into the election-hacking game,” according to a post on the company’s website. “It seems easy enough.”

The game’s makers announced that they have identified six U.S. congressional districts that they believe Democrats can flip in November’s midterms. 

On its site, the company asks for individuals to send in the addresses of voters who live in the districts identified by Cards Against Humanity’s creators so that the company can send a “Midterm pack” to those voters for free. 

“We’ll also throw in a pamphlet that uses logic and facts to manipulate your friend into voting for the Democrat,” the memo reads, before adding that one can donate $5 to the campaign if they don’t know anyone in the specific districts its targeting. 

The campaign had raised more than $60,000 as of Wednesday afternoon. All of the profits will be donated to Run For Something, a group that supports progressive candidates.

“We tried to pick competitive Congressional races that featured exciting progressive candidates who would benefit from this push,” the company said in a statement to The Hill. “We selected candidates that believe healthcare is a human right, support common sense gun control laws, and would serve as a check on Trump’s power.”

The campaign targets races in states such as California, Illinois, Iowa, Texas and Kansas.

The Democratic candidates include Katie Hill, who is running against Steve Knight (R) in California’s 25th Congressional District; Abby Finkenauer, who is running against Rod Blum (R) in Iowa’s 1st Congressional District; Sean Casten, who is running against Peter Roskam Peter James RoskamLobbying world House votes to temporarily repeal Trump SALT deduction cap Feehery: How Republicans can win back the suburbs MORE (R) in Illinois’s 6th Congressional District; Lauren Underwood, who is running against Randy HultgrenRandall (Randy) Mark HultgrenRepublican challenging freshman Dem rep says he raised 0,000 in 6 days Illinois Dems offer bill to raise SALT deduction cap The 31 Trump districts that will determine the next House majority MORE (R) in Illinois’s 14th Congressional District; James Thompson, who is running against Ron EstesRonald (Ron) Gene EstesHouse GOP lawmakers urge Senate to confirm Vought Electric Avenue: The Democrats’ crusade to rob from the poor to build electric cars for the rich Pompeo expected to visit Kansas on Thursday MORE (R) in Kansas’s 4th Congressional District; and Linsey Fagan, who is running against Michael BurgessMichael Clifton BurgessThe Hill’s Coronavirus Report: Moniz says U.S. needs energy jobs coalition and Manchin says Congress is pushing Wall Street solutions that don’t work for Main Street; Burr to step aside The Hill’s 12:30 Report: House returns to DC for coronavirus relief House leaders enact new safety precautions for votes MORE (R) in Texas’s 26th Congressional District.
