Long before we have the 2020 election, we have work to do to flip seats this year. We’ve already looked at the 2019 governor elections and the 2019 state legislative elections, so today we’re going to look at the three states that have elections for their Attorneys General later this year. Whoever works harder to turn out their voters can win these seats.
Kentucky’s current AG is Democrat Andy Beshear. Beshear is running for governor, so we will need to work hard to make sure that this important seat stays in the hands of a Democrat.
Democrat Greg Stumbo
Mississippi’s current AG is Democrat Jim Hood. Like Beshear, Hood is running for governor, so we will need to work hard to make sure that this important seat stays in the hands of a Democrat.
Democrat Jennifer Collins
Currently, Louisiana’s AG is a Republican and he’s running again. Flipping an incumbent is possible, but not easy. Ike Jackson is the Democrat in this race–the primary will be held on October 12. Learn more about how to help win this election by getting involved with the Louisiana Democrats HERE.

If you are farther away, you can follow candidates on social media and share information about their campaigns on your accounts, and you can donate to their campaigns. You might consider signing up as a volunteer at their campaign websites as they often have tasks that supporters can do from afar. And finally, keep an eye out for postcarding campaigns to help these elections at sites like Postcards for Voters and Sister District.
