Joss Whedon made a significant donation to the One Vote at a Time campaign that lead to 79 Democrat Wins, flipping 76 seats.
The campaign was the brainchild of freelance director and former Maker Studios employee, Sarah Ullman, who created almost 600 campaign adds (including one filmed at Joss’ L.A. house) for down-ballot Democratic candidates in 10 states in the lead up to the midterm elections.
Together with her all-female crew, she worked with 191 Democratic contenders.
Sarah first worked with Joss when she directed a video for his 2016 PAC for the get-out-the-vote campaign. In 2017, One Vote was created when Ullman made 30 ads for 19 candidates in Virginia, flipping 10 state House seats. This inspired Joss to support her 2018 midterm campaign. Speaking of his decision, Joss said:
Her campaign spots never went negative. She listened to what mattered to her candidates, saw who they were and presented that. For someone, especially in this divisive time, to do that much without rancor or snark is as impressive as anything else.
Ullman is now focusing on the 2019 elections.
