An Early, Inclusive and Targeted Ground Operation: How the Democratic Party is Building for 2019, 2020 and Beyond
Posted by Netroots Nation on Saturday, July 13, 2019
In 2016, primary campaigns spent 10 times more time in the first four “early states” than the 10 biggest general election battlegrounds, and that’s likely to happen again this cycle. With limited time to pivot from the primary and ramp up for the general election, our eventual Democratic nominee will need the tools and resources to grow quickly and effectively. Join us to discuss what we learned from 2016 and how the DNC, state parties, and coordinated side groups are applying that to our general election readiness efforts in 2019-2020. This panel is sponsored by the DNC.
