One thing we have not talked about much is the importance of state houses and governorships

in the context of the 2024 elections. So far Wisconsin has reelected Tony Evers (D), we won the control of the Michigan legislature for the first time in decades and of course Gretchen Whitmer won, Pennsylvania got us Fetterman for the senate and Shapiro for governor. It looks like Katy Hobes might win the Arizona Governorship if the remaining votes keep to favor her.

All of these states are critical to avoid a repeat of the 2020 attempt in rigging the presidential election. Hopefully that will put a damper on the GOP attempts to subvert democracy in 2024.

3. Dems cut into the R majority

in the PA state house. The R majority will be slim and Dems may even have won enough seats to flip the house.

5. This was an advantage of having contentious house and Senate races.

In previous years when voters didn't seem to care about the races when President and VP weren't on ballot turnout was horrible when Dems couldn't get excited about voting for MOC, the governorships and State Sec of State, etc. suffered and Republicans have taken over state governorships over the past 25 years.

This may be a great sign if the younger generation makes this a habit of voting every time there is an election. Part of citizenship is voting. If they really want to eventually take over the power of the party, they have to get into the habit of voting. I really hope this is a good sign. Dems made a great showing in Michigan this year.
