A lot went right in the 2018 midterms, especially when it came to coordination between official campaigns and grassroots groups like Indivisible. We’re joined this week by Dylan Cate, formerly the Director of Organizing and Strategic Campaigns with the Washington State Democratic Party, to talk about how we can best apply those lessons to the upcoming 2020 elections.
And then, because 2019 is a year progressives are looking to do some real bench-building, we officially begin our coverage of local and municipal elections. Rituja Indipure is running for city council in Sammamish, and we have our discussion with her.
