Contest Every Race:
Mark your calendar for a special call: Wednesday, Oct 13th at 7pm. The Missouri Democratic Party is excited to be partnering with Contest Every Race to make sure we find Democrats to run in every local race in 2021.
You’re in charge of deciding where recruitment help is needed so we can steer people only to these races. Contest Every Race has a system to make this easy for you, but your participation up front is essential. Their team will go over how it works on this call.
Once we’ve completed the targeting process with your help, Contest Every Race will text every Democrat in the voter file, plus the members of partner groups such as MoveOn, LCV, and others, with all the info they’ll need to file. So far in 2021, over 65,000 prospective candidates have raised their hands in other states. In 2020, more than 1,000 officially filed to run and more than 500 won, in races where no Dem would have run otherwise. 70% are women or people of color.
We’re excited to tell you more about the Contest Every Race program and how we are asking for your leadership, on Wednesday, October 13th at 7pm Don’t miss this call!
