"All Politics Is Local" By Meaghan Winter
Meaghan Winter is a freelance magazine writer and author of the new book "All Politics Is Local: Why Progressives Must Fight for the States."
After the 2016 election, Republicans had their largest majority in the states since 1928, controlling legislative chambers in thirty-two states and governor offices in thirty-three. They also held both chambers of Congress and the presidency despite losing the popular vote. What happened?
Winter shows how the Democratic Party and left-leaning political establishment have spent the past several decades betting it all on the very risky and increasingly foolhardy strategy of abandoning the states to focus on federal races.
