In 2018, we worked to elect Democrats in 14 legislative chambers in 10 strategic states that are critical to building a better democracy.
Where We're Focused
We chose these states because they have a huge impact on our national elections (via Republican gerrymandering & voter suppression), they’re home to millions of people in need of progressive policies, and they’re winnable in the next 2 election cycles. Dive deeper into each state to learn more about the current landscape and what's at stake.
Why We Targeted These States
Change the Game
States write the rules of our national elections and control voting requirements. By flipping seats in states with histories of gerrymandering and/or voter suppression, we can start to build democracy from the states up.
Tip the Balance
In some states, winning just a few seats can flip a whole chamber of the state legislature. By investing where we can flip a state house, we can enact progressive policies across the country.
Turn the Tide
These are traditionally deep-red seats well-situated for Democratic inroads across multiple election cycles. By flipping seats now, we can break veto-proof Republican majorities and lay the groundwork for future progressive victories.
