OUR TARGETS

HOW WE MAKE OUR IMPACT
Brush up on the who, where, and when of crucial state races.

The people we elect to state House and state Senate wield tremendous political power. From drawing district maps to deciding who gets access to Medicaid, state representatives have the power to make—or break—our democracy. See the progress we made in each of our 2018 focus states, the outcomes of our candidates’ races, and the dates to watch.

Meet Our 2018 Candidates

The Candidates

Why Focus on These States?

Rules@2x.png
States write the rules of national elections

States control voting methods and draw congressional maps. When the GOP suppresses votes, Dems lose.

Lives@2x.png
States pass policies that affect our lives

From healthcare to gun control, the laws that impact our lives the most are often passed by the states.

Bench@2x.png
States build a progressive bench

Serving at the state level gets future Democratic leaders (like Barack Obama) ready to run for national office.

Value@2x.png
States are the best value for your time and money

Compared to national races, state races are cheap. Grassroots donations can make the difference in state elections.
