Outside groups looking to flip state legislative chambers make their closing arguments

With less than two weeks left to Election Day, most eyes are tuned to the battle for control of Congress, but some groups are laser focused on securing majorities in state legislatures across the country

At the same time, one Democratic group called Forward Majority is supporting candidates in 25 seats across three state legislatures — Pennsylvania, Michigan and Arizona. They’re spending over $20 million this cycle, joining another Democratic group called the States Project, which plans to spend $60 million by the end of this cycle in legislative races in five states.
