Welcome to 2023! Some in politics refer to odd years, like this one, as off years. We like to think of them as the years when you can actually get something done. Election years are pretty worthless for accomplishing anything towards anything like a long term goal because the campaigns and election work suck all the oxygen out of the room.
Right now, we are brainstorming and looking at various opportunities to invest in for rural Democrats in 2023. These include training for county chairs who want to run their own separate primary, triaging our strongest Democratic counties and making plans to use them as staging grounds for efforts in adjoining counties, continuing organizing work in counties with no Democratic Party, organizing a rural Democrats convention and many others.
