Southern Swing States

Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and Georgia are basically swing states in the south. Southern Democrats in these states need to get better organized at the precinct and county levels if we really want to turn these states blue in future elections. I'm a big believer in local grass roots, but the only way we can do that is through volunteering and donating to local affiliates. If we can get good grassroots on the ground in these states, we can turn these states blue in election after election.

North Carolina is important. The courts struck down the districts, and it is being redistricted before the next state legislative election. I know I'm going to do what I can to help Democrats win in these friendlier districts.

3. I think Florida might be lost to the repubs because of two things

1) a lot of folks have moved from Puerto Rico and none of them are at all happy with how trump handled the hurricane relief in there home town s

2) felons who have fulfilled their sentences can now vote and a majority of them are predicted to vote Democratic

3) demographics favor the Democrats

in National elections this state has 29 electoral votes that's over 10% of the needed electoral votes to win

I think Georgia would be the hardest of these

another state you forgot to mention is Arizona, I think that state might be ripe for a blue break through
