Happy 5th of July!

My #FridayMotivation is to remind all #Resisters how important STATE elections will be in 2019 & 2020.

In 2019, 4 sates have state legislative elections: LA, MS, VA, & NJ;

Three states have elections for Governor: LA, MS, & KY.

THREAD
The composition of state governments is vital. In many states, state legislatures will redraw voting districts after the 2020 census. Governor’s will need to sign off on those districts.
State governments also pass legislation that will either protect or restrict our rights. They are our first line of defense against Trumpism. It is vital to GOTV and support Democratic candidates in these states in 2019.
Meet the current Democratic candidates for Governor in 2019:
LA: John Bel Edwards - @LouisianaGov (incumbent)
KY: Andy Beshear: @AndyBeshearKY (challenger)
In MS, the current Republican governor is term limited. Democratic & republican candidates will be determined in the primary election on August 6. The leading democratic contender & likely candidate is Jim Hood: @HoodForGovernor
Primary elections for LA State House & Senate races will be held October 12.
