16. Clearly it isn't enough.

But as I mentioned, the GOP has extremely strong support in the rural parts of the county. That's not just a Wisconsin problem, it's a national problem.

In the city elections, we knocked on 12,000 doors in a city of 65,000. Progressive candidates won 4 of 5 city council seats, including the first openly trans woman elected to office in WI history. So I am proud of these efforts, but it isn't enough. What if in every race, we knocked on 1 of 5 doors in the entire city, focusing on potential Democratic voters? It would make a difference.

What are you doing or plan to do to maximize your turnout and expand the local base, given the realities of GOP current support in rural areas?
