Now, I wanted to write an account of 2016, blog-style, and it was so hectic, as you can imagine, I am way behind. Just to say, though the outcome was dramatically what we hadn't expected, I worked with some great candidates and had some down-ballot winners.
For this new year, our goal MUST be to find and develop and recruit new candidates for all offices, from way down-ballot all the way to Congress. Virginia and New Jersey have elections in 2017, and then we go to all the other state elections in 2018. It is crucial that we have strong state legislatures, strong city councils, and mayors to fight back against any laws the Republican Congress throw at us.
