Key 2022 Races

  • Senate

    New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan won her last campaign by 1,017 votes, and keeping her seat is crucial to holding onto the Senate majority. In Pennsylvania, Democrats find a huge Senate pick-up opportunity with Pat Toomey retiring and a bunch of Republicans trying to out-fascist each other for the nomination.

    Targets

    • New Hampshire
    • Pennsylvania
  • House

    Thanks in part to New York’s redistricting efforts, this will be one of the few regions of the country where Democrats can almost certainly pick up seats to hold onto their House majority, and there’s no shortage of incumbent members that need defending.

    Targets

    • Connecticut
    • Maine
    • Maryland
    • New Hampshire
    • New Jersey
    • New York
    • Pennsylvania

  • Governors

    Holding onto Pennsylvania‘s governorship will be key to ensuring the state has fair elections and those results are not overturned in 2024. This region is also home to some of the biggest gubernatorial pick-up opportunities in the nation, with open seats in Maryland and Massachusetts.

    Targets

    • Maryland
    • Massachusetts
    • New Hampshire
    • New York
    • Pennsylvania
  • State Legislatures

    Across the country, just one state legislature flipped from one party to the other in 2020. It was New Hampshire, where Republicans won both chambers. Let’s make it two this year, but flip it in the right direction and turn Pennsylvania and New Hampshire’s state legislature’s blue again.

    Targets

    • New Hampshire
    • Pennsylvania

Other races to watch

  • Newark Municipal Elections

    On May 10th, Newark is holding elections for mayor and city council, the outcomes of which will determine the future of education, policing, and housing in New Jersey’s biggest city.

  • Baltimore State’s Attorney

    If you care about criminal justice reform in MD, you should watch the race for Baltimore’s top prosecutor. With the incumbent under indictment, and a top candidate running as an independent, anything can happen.

  • Vermont Proposal 5

    With the looming threat of Roe v. Wade being overturned in June, Vermonters have put an initiative on the ballot making the right to personal reproductive autonomy a part of the state constitution.
