SUPER STATE STRATEGY
Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes would go a long way to helping Democrats win the White House in 2020.
Taking back control of the Pennsylvania General Assembly and ending Republican gerrymandering is another huge priority in 2020.
Democrats lost the state in 2016 for the first time since 1988. That’s why we need your help to make Pennsylvania blue again!
What's at stake
GerrymanderingThe Pennsylvania GOP has spent 10 years rigging district maps to protect their political power.
The State Supreme Court recently threw out these gerrymandered congressional maps drawn by Republicans in 2011, widely considered the most partisan in the country.
The new map in use today is temporary. Democrats must win a majority to keep the GOP from putting Republicans' own interests ahead of Pennsylvanians' in 2021.
Criminal Justice Reform
Pennsylvania’s incarceration rate is higher than the national average, with 96,000 people incarcerated as of 2018. In the same year, the state ranked last in corrections when measured by incarceration rates, racial equity in jailing, and other related factors.
There are still 685,400 Pennsylvanians who don’t have health insurance, even after expanding Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act.
Flipping the Pennsylvania General Assembly and the White House to Democratic control are essential to improving health care access for Pennsylvanians.
