America Votes President Greg Speed published his latest Medium blog post discussing the 2016 election cycle. His piece, “Beating Trump is not nearly enough,” discusses the importance of focusing down-ballot during a presidential election cycle and the implications of not only mobilizing against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, but the conservative base that nominated him.
While I am confident Trump will lose the presidential election and lose badly, neither the country nor progressives can afford even a moment of complacency. We must mobilize as never before because winning the White House is not nearly enough.
The Republican Party that will nominate Trump holds a majority in every elected office below the presidency. Time and again, they have won power by stoking similar resentment, hate and divisive politics with a similar base of voters who backed Trump.
If you haven't read this yet, see why an enhanced Voting Rights Act is imperative in this political climate. https://t.co/Y8kApPLckG
