Contest Every Race is a coalition with a clear goal — we work with anyone who will support local Democratic candidates.
Our major partners are Democratic State Party leadership. We’ve worked closely with state parties in Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. In 2022 we’re working in many of these states again, plus California, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Tennessee.
We’ve also collaborated deeply with many candidate recruitment and support organizations such as Run for Something and the National Democratic Training Committee.
Finally, we work with county party chairs across the country. We’ve spoken with over 1,000 county party chairs and have helped more than 500 of them meet new potential candidates in person.
