Run for something! That was the call of the resistance after the unthinkable happened a year ago this week. In fact, a non-profit organization called Run for Something launched with the primary goal to “recruit and support talented, passionate young people who will advocate for progressive values now and for the next 30 years.” And recruit they did!
So, what kind of impact did that have in Virginia, which saw a historic blue wave on Tuesday night? To put it in the simplest terms, Rachel Maddow did a fantastic job with just two simple graphics. This is the changing face of the Virginia House of Delegates. And it looks beautiful.
If you ever wonder if you are good enough or smart enough for any elected office, remember, it is most likely currently being occupied by a mediocre, conservative, white male and you bet your ass you can do a better job! Run for something!
