Invite: Fri, Dec 4th 2pm ET - NDN Talks Arizona Going Blue w/Rep. Ruben Gallego

Here's whats on tap this month: 

Friday, Dec 4th 2pm ET - NDN Talks Arizona Going Blue w/Rep. Ruben Gallego - One of the biggest changes in the national politics and the Electoral College map over the past two decades has been the gradual turning of the Southwest from a lean GOP area to a solidly blue one.  In 2004 George W. Bush won AZ, CO, NM, NV in his re-election bid, and 6 of the region’s 8 Senators were Republicans.  In 2020, Democrats claimed all 31 Electoral College votes from the region, and all 8 Senators are now Democrats.  It is has been a significant evolution indeed.

This year Democrats finally flipped the toughest of the four states, Arizona, home to Barry Goldwater and John McCain, winning both its Electoral College votes and a second Senate seat.   Joining us this Friday at 2pm ET for a discussion about the changing politics of the Southwest, and Arizona in particular, is Phoenix based Rep. Ruben Gallego, one of the key architects of the Democratic Party’s recent success in Arizona.   You can register for this terrific event here, and catch both Rep. Gallego and Simon Rosenberg talking about the changing politics of Arizona in a new Washington Post analysis by Greg Sargent.

With Democrats Things Get Better – NDN's signature 2020 presentation, "With Dems" is a deep dive into the performance of the two political parties over the past generation of American politics.  We believe the insights in With Dems are essential to understanding our current moment, and the possibiities the new Biden Presidency may bring.  

We have two presenations of With Dems scheduled for December -  Wed, Dec 9th at 2pm ET (register) and Wed, Dec 23rd at 2pm ET (register). 

Learn more about the big arguments behind With Dems, do read Mike Tomasky’s glowing review in the Daily Beast and feel to watch a recording of our most recent With Dems presentation on Wed, Nov 18th.

We hope to see you at one of these upcoming events, and feel free to invite others.  The more the merrier for Wednesdays at NDN!
