Before we focus on the articles we published in DemCastUSA last week, we want to call your attention to this fantastic series from EveryDistrict. The 2040 Project focuses on how to build Democratic power in each of the 50 states. The series discusses their 50-state strategy, highlighting a different state each day. Below is an introduction to the series, and here is a link to the latest article we published, on Maine. You can find your state on DemCastUSA by entering EveryDistrict and the name of your state in the search box.
Last week included great news about vaccinations, and some some scary news about the spread of the pandemic. Most Republicans proved their hypocrisy once again by ignoring the horrifying allegations against Matt Gaetz, trying to convince Americans of false narratives about the Jan. 6 insurrectionists and working to make it harder for people to vote. Once again there was violence and death at the Capitol. We join the nation in mourning Capitol Officer William “Billy” Evans.
While the MSM was obsessed with the Chauvin trial, DemCast writers were more interested in talking about important issues like The Democracy Pledge, the Biden Immigration Bill, D.C. statehood, police reform and the need to save our postal service by firing Louis DeJoy.
We hope you will join us next week when DemCast will be working to educate the public about the vitally important For the People Act, and why the Senate must pass it to save the integrity of our elections. Until then, here’s your opportunity to catch up on what you missed Last Week in DemCast.
