3. Politics is local

Control state legislatures, you control the voting districts, you have the most influence to shape public policy to do the most good for people in their daily lives.

4. 2020 Census will be crucial

More congressional seats will shift to Southeastern states and if their legislatures are still Republican it will make getting the House back even harder

5. 2022 will be the first election with the new seats, if the redistricting

doesn't end up in federal court.

6. Population growth is a single edged sword for republicans.

The reason why they obstruct voting rights for some people is it is becoming harder and harder for them to win otherwise. Our game should be in voter registration and education. Get people registered and educate them on how to check their registration on a regular basis.
