The GOP thinks they've found a foolproof way to win elections, Anne: make it harder for people who typically vote for Democrats to cast their ballots.
You don't have to take my word for it -- you can ask the courts.
Last year, a federal court struck down North Carolina's draconian voting restrictions because they targeted African Americans "with almost surgical precision." The Supreme Court just announced that it will take up a case of gerrymandered congressional districts in Wisconsin, which one federal court already found were designed specifically to hurt minority voters.
But even though the GOP is starting to take some losses in court, we know they're going to keep passing restrictive voting laws and drawing gerrymandered maps. It's a lot easier to win when you've got your finger on the scale -- even if it comes at the cost of eroding the very fabric of our democracy.
These voting restrictions and district maps come by and large from GOP-controlled statehouses. So if we're going to stop this junk, we need to elect Democratic governors and state legislators.
There are governor's mansions and legislative seats at stake in just a few months in Virginia and New Jersey. Friday's end-of-quarter fundraising deadline is a huge opportunity for Democrats to set the tone for victories in November.
So if you believe in protecting our right to vote and making sure our elections are fair, I need you to commit to electing Democrats. Chip in $3 or whatever you can before this deadline.
