In a district that had never voted a Democrat to Congress, Katie Porter was elected in 2018 with the help of TextOut.
Katie Porter Wins in Historic Race as a First Time Candidate
After conducting peer-to-peer listening, persuasion, and mobilization text message campaigns with TextOut, Katie Porter, a law professor, attorney, single mother of three, and first-time candidate, was elected to Congress on November 6, 2018 by 3.4 points. Her 2018 win helped Democrats regain control of the House.
