Democrats’ wins in the Michigan, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania state legislatures are fragile.
Democrats had good results in the November midterm elections, but particularly so in state capitols. Whether they can repeat their performance remains an open question.
They defended slim majorities, and flipped a few chambers in the key battleground states including Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Minnesota.
Forward Majority’s co-founder Vicky Hausman said that the organization searched for “every single unexploited opportunity at the district and race level that allows us to fight for the votes that no one else is targeting at this stage.” For example, it collected 20,000 voter registration applications in neglected districts where Republicans made up half the electorate in an attempt to boost Democrats’ edge.
