And if Democrats can get more Medicaid expansion measures on the ballot, they could turn some red states a little bluer. It’s just one more thing for Republicans to worry about.

And if Democrats win or win parity in the House of Delegates in Virginia, Governor-elect Northam may finally pass the long-stymied Medicaid expansion.

A Democratic Wave Washing Over the Grassroots?

But, wait, there’s more! Democrats are finally taking a blade from the Right’s grassroots turf. As Tyler Titus shows, Dems are now targeting local offices, growing the party from the ground up.

In a separate article, WaPo recounts:

A local elected official, Atlantic County Freeholder John L. Carman, had posted a meme on Facebook the day of the Women’s March, showing a woman stirring a pot over a kitchen stove.

“Just asking?” Carman wrote above the meme, which said: “Will the woman’s protest be over in time for them to cook dinner?”

In another post, he shared an image with the words, “There must be a large sandwich making class going on in DC today,” according to Shore News Today.

Constituent Ashley Bennett was outraged. The next day, she confronted Carman at a meeting with county officials. He dismissed his comments as a joke.

Not satisfied, Bennett decided to challenge Carman for his seat. She had never run for a political office before. Bennett wound up beating Carman in a GOP bastion, the youngest candidate on the county ticket.

Remember, Sarah Palin started out on the Wasilla City Council.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. In terms of politics, grassroots starts with a single blade.

The Democratic wave brings up a difficult conundrum. Should we thank Donald Trump for inspiring a Democratic Party renaissance?
