Sifting Through the Electoral Landscape
In 2020, when America experienced massive turnout and Democrats had the wind at their backs, the party underperformed. Outside of some big wins in the US Senate and White House, Team Blue lost a lot of ground.
Now – in 2022 – with strong political headwinds and a defiant Republican base that is highly motivated to vote, pro-democracy activists need to set realistic expectations and focus intently on the races that need the most attention.
Here at DemCast, we’ve reviewed the data and identified the races and candidates that are critical for the preservation of democracy and our freedoms. We’ve sorted these races into three categories:
Our democracy is in danger. GOP state legislatures are passing laws across the country aimed at overturning the will of the voters.
Governors, Secretaries of State and Attorneys General may be the last line of defense in these states to prevent a 2024 GOP coup.

Keep the House
Republicans have been floating the idea that they would select Donald Trump as Speaker if they manage to win in November.
This is actually possible. But even if it’s McCarthy or Stefanik, we know what’s coming: a conspiratorial Biden impeachment, Benghazi-style propaganda-infused investigations, and – most dangerously – a likely refusal to certify the 2024 election results if a Democrat wins.
