REMEMBER WHEN “MONEY IN POLITICS” WAS BAD? Wealthy donors on left launch new plan to wrest back control in the states. “The plan embraced by the Democracy Alliance, an organization that advises some of the Democrats’ top contributors, puts an urgent new focus on financing groups that can help the party regain influence in time for the next congressional redistricting process, after the 2020 elections. The blueprint approved by the alliance board calls on donors to help expand state-level organizing and lobbying for measures addressing climate change, voting rights and economic inequality.”

Remember: People get the most excited about Presidential elections, but as these people realize, there’s a lot of important stuff going on all the way down the ticket.
