Study Group with Raul Alvillar: From Governor to Dogcatcher - Why Down Ballot Races Matter
From the governor to the mayor to the dogcatcher, all elected offices are important. This study group will examine the importance of down ballot races and what affects these races from a national perspective. We will analyze gubernatorial races, statehouse races, mayoral races, and even school board races. We will focus on some of the issues that affect these elections and discuss how down ballot candidates can run in local races when the national narrative dominates conversations. In turn, we will look at the importance of down ballot races and how they can shape the national perspective as well.
Raul will be joined by Amy Dacey, former CEO of the Democratic National Committee and Executive Director of the Sine Institute of Policy & Politics at American University.
