Priorities for 2023
Infrastructure Building for the Longer Term:

Grassroots groups working on the ground
Democratic state Parties
Virginia Legislature - Both Senate & House
Pennsylvania Supreme Court and Key Local Elections
for our primary and secondary priority states.
31st Street Strategy, in a Nutshell
Election "infrastructure" is crucial.
There are major issues with the standard approach used by many other organizations:
"Boom and Bust" cycle around the time of elections
Siloed campaigns; disjointed & uncoordinated efforts
Too much, and too late, dependence on TV
Failing to organize locally year-round & on-the-ground
We build infrastructure in states with key elections, especially US Senate races, via organizations that do year-round, on-the-ground organizing.
Support State Party year-round organizing following successful Wisconsin model e.g. PA, NC and MI
Grassroots groups in PA, NC and GA
We especially look for opportunities to reach working class and rural voters.
Working America's outreach to working class voters appears attractive, including for members to engage with voters in Pennsylvania.
We provide very selective candidate support where our dollars will be most effective.
Our 2022 Scorecard for Financially Supported Races
We select very competitive races and only aim to win around 60%.
In this case, the crude result is 16/25 for 64% So, right on the money!
Now, adding in win for Reverend Warnock, takes us to 17/26 for 65+%
