Group urges Democrats to focus on swing state suburbs

The group, Forward Majority, pointed to former GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s performance with suburban voters in North Carolina, Minnesota, Virginia and Colorado to show the importance of voter engagement in battleground districts. The group argued Haley’s performance in those regions could help inform the party’s efforts to secure President Biden’s reelection and success in down-ballot races in its new report, first shared with The Hill.

Forward Majority argued the majority white, high income counties where Haley won and experienced close losses in the GOP primary “strongly reflect” the suburban counties in battleground states, concluding “Trump is beatable” in those areas of Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“Voters in the suburbs will be the ones deciding the 2024 presidential election, our state legislative leaders and the future of our democracy,” Forward Majority founder & co-CEO Vicky Hausman said in a statement to The Hill.
