Taking back the House in 2018 might very well depend on us. Rep. John Faso is among the most vulnerable of the GOP incumbents. Voting in a Democrat is our chance to put a check on the GOP’s and Trump’s power.

Faso now has a voting record that can be used against him. Here are some of the actions that Faso voted for in 2017 and that Trump supported.
