The presidential election this year will be one of the most consequential of our lifetimes. There’s no question Democrats must win.
But if we learned anything from the rampant map manipulation that took place in 2011 after massive losses for Democrats in 2010, it’s that we can’t get distracted from the incredibly important races taking place down the ballot. Will you help the NDRC elect Democrats at the state and local levels?
See, no matter who wins the White House this year, if we can’t get Democrats into office and at the table for redistricting, Republicans will manipulate the maps for another decade. That will mean another ten years of extreme Republican decision-making on all the issues we care about, including racial justice, health care, climate change, and many more.
I’m not saying the presidential race isn’t important -- of course it is! But the NDRC is focusing on the strategic state-level races that will make all the difference for a fair redistricting. And while it takes billions of dollars to win the presidency, the outcome of these small races will be determined by grassroots donations of $100, $50, even $5.
We’ve already proven the NDRC can tip the scales for down-ballot Democrats in 2017, 2018, and 2019. But we must dig deep to finish the job in 2020.
We’ve already endorsed 169 candidates nationwide and invested in nine 2020 target states thanks to this community. But with Republicans still in control of redistricting in key states like Ohio, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, we have to do more.
So Sula: Will you help ensure that Democrats are able to fight for a fair redistricting next year by making a donation now?
