Running in a Red District
Tuesday, January 10 at 1pm ET

In 2022, 60% of NDTC-trained candidates who were on the ballot were in red districts. That fact might surprise you, but what it should tell you is that running as a Democrat in red communities is more possible than you think.

While it’s of course an uphill battle, NDTC will be at your side every step of the way. Get started by learning about the unique considerations you should make before running in a red district at Tuesday’s training.


How to Build and Use Your Campaign Plan
Thursday, January 12 at 1pm ET

You grocery shop with a plan so you don’t get too much or too little. In a campaign, your plan ensures you don’t have too few or too many resources to run your best campaign possible. 🛒

As the new year picks up, this is the best time to form an expert campaign plan. Outline your team’s priorities and learn to adjust the plan along the way.
