What should the Dems do to win in the midterms?

1. Should we have nationwide and unified campaigns that run with the "anti-moron" platform along with Healthcare (it worked in NJ and VI)?
2. Should we have the individual states set their own agendas (like taxes, guns, minority rights, climate change, abortion, etc.)?
3. Should the Dems embrace the "Women's rights" issue since women put the nails in the GOP coffins last night.
*of course getting people to vote at all is key.

1. Yes, a qualified yes, and yes.

On #2, if a candidates' agenda conflicts with #1 or 3, we should look for another candidate as soon as possible. Or attempt to reach out to the candidate.

2. Agree....

However the "get out and vote" should be our biggest push.

3. A combination of all of those

An overarching theme that defines the party, followed by individuals setting their agendas (like Dean’s 50 States agenda), and then absolutely hammer at how the GOP wants control over women’s bodies. Use some sort of “tell the GOP to keep their hands off my body” slogan.

4. What VA just did.

1. Make sure you have a candidate for EVERY race. No more unopposed Republicans.
2. Print up lots of signs for them to plant.
3. Get lots of people to GOTV.
