Summer of Canvas
This winter, we resisted. Now it’s time for Democrats to go on offense.  When Democrats only focus on elections in big presidential years, we miss opportunities to win important local races that build our bench and impact our communities.  We need to talk – and listen — to voters all year…

Election Day was August 1st!
