Won't Wait for 08
Been sick with a cold (my two year old son is patient zero) so blogging is light...
I've been thinking about the 2006 races for House, Senate and Governorships, that are looking better for dems all the time.
Please comment with good sites that you think are nationalizing the next election well. I do believe that Dems need to push this as an overall referendum on the direction of our leadership...as one election, not only as hundreds of individual elections.
One I like is the DGA's "Won't Wait for 08" Pledge...aimed at uniting our attention on the 36 govenor races this November. And Governorships will be a key battleground, one that the math is in our favor. From the Washington Post:
Democrats are positioned for gains in governors' races in November and could capture governorships in many big battleground states, giving the party an early edge in the 2008 fight for the White House.But sign up here to support the DGA's "Won't Wait for 08" Pledge...
Republicans must defend 22 of the 36 governors' offices on the ballot in November, including eight states where the incumbent retired or is barred from running again. Democrats defend 14 governorships but only one in which the incumbent is not running.
The lopsided political map, along with a tough national election climate for Republicans, put Democrats in a strong position to pick up at least the four governorships needed for a national majority. Republicans hold 28 governorships to 22 for Democrats.
