All Eyes on the States

Democrats achieved momentous victories at the state level in the midterms, but our work is far from finished. We’re gearing up to take back the Virginia House of Delegates and build power in Louisiana and Mississippi next year — and keep MAGA Republicans out of state legislatures and the White House in 2024. This work takes all of us, and it starts now.

Your Donation Helps Democrats Win!

From the right to vote to same-sex marriage to abortion access, the fight for a progressive future has always been led by grassroots organizers at the state level. State policy becomes national policy, state leaders become national leaders, and states are the bulwark against an activist Supreme Court and chaos at the federal level.

Gifts from community members like you made up more than 90% of our operating budget in 2020.

Volunteer to Help Get Democrats Elected in Swing States

With over 50,000 volunteers across the nation, we are one of the largest and most effective progressive grassroots organizations in the country. 

Help us build progressive power and get Democrats elected in swing states like Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Texas.

You’ll also help support our civic engagement work, like voter registration and working with community-based organizations in our target states. And you’ll do it all while having fun with a community of like-minded activists!

You’ll help Democrats get elected to critical state legislative seats across the country by 

  • making phone calls to voters
  • writing postcards
  • sending text messages
  • raising small dollar donations

And you’ll do it all while having fun with a community of like-minded activists!

Our Map

2022

Target States: AZ, GA, MI, NC, NV, PA, WI, TX, CO, & WA

Nested Opportunities: Prioritize states with nested competitive Senate, House, and Gubernatorial elections.

Redistricting Commissions: Prioritize states with redistricting commissions, where we expect new maps to be fairer for Democrats.

Incumbent Protection: Invest in fragile incumbents. Incumbent protection has always been a key component of our electoral strategy. We can expect many state legislative Democratic incumbents to face reelection challenges under new maps in Republican-controlled states. We must not lose our hard-won gains.

Partisan control over time: Antecedents to flipping state legislatures

This analysis was a correlational study using archival data that sought to determine if the state-wide election results for President, Governor, and/or U.S. Senate flipping from one party to another could serve as a reliable antecedent to, 1) state legislative chambers subsequently flipping to that same party, and/or 2) the state becoming a trifecta for that party.
