In the 2014 midterm elections, Democrats were soundly defeated by Republican candidates. However, in states all over this country, progressive referendums and ballot initiatives were being passed in record numbers – everything from increasing the minimum wage to legalizing marijuana.

Voters want progressive policies, and that’s where we need to focus.
