Local Democracy

June 1, 2015

Recently the Right, often funded by the Koch Bros. NLC, have worked successfully to gain control of city and state governments for the Republican party. A major example of their success was the Republican majorities in state legislatures in 2010 that put them in a position to gerrymander Congressional districts, making it very hard for Democrats to regain a majority in the House.

Meanwhile, the Dems were rejecting Howard Dean’s “50-State Strategy.”

But Progressives have figured that out, and begun to show successes themselves.

See especially this nonpartisan Web site (related to the link above).
