Defending Main Street (DMS) is a highly effective SuperPAC that defends key incumbent Republican seats and identifies new candidates who are ready to work across the aisle to get things done. Our candidates (and Members) are committed to enacting common-sense, bipartisan legislation on kitchen-table issues such as health care, equal pay, childcare, education, clean water, and infrastructure.
85%+ WINNING PERCENTAGE
for candidates we’ve supported over the last three cycles (including 88% in 2020)
goes directly to helping our candidates.
94%+ OF EVERY DOLLAR RAISED
A WINNING STRATEGY
Defending Main Street is run as a business. More than 94 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to helping our candidates. We go into targeted districts, identify key voters, survey them, talk with them, and follow up by micro-targeting them online and through the mail. Our messaging reflects a deep understanding of the issues and values that each district’s voters are looking for.
Defending Main Street (DMS) is one of the nation’s most effective independent-expenditure organizations. The races we enter are in key, contested districts across the country that are crucial to securing a Republican majority in Congress. Once in office, our Members have been prolific, passing hundreds of fiscally responsible, socially inclusive bills through the House, the Senate, or both.
We defend key incumbent Republican seats and identify new candidates whom we can push to victory. In 2020, eight of the nine candidates we supported won, giving us an even better opportunity to be majority makers in the 2021-22 session. And we supported Randy Feenstra in the Iowa-04 primary against incumbent Steve King.
