We just had municipal elections in my area yesterday, but I was almost as excited as I was in 2008. Dems and progressive candidates absolutely swept, taking extra council and board of ed seats in democratic strongholds and flipping many towns and cities to democratic control, even in many places that have been solidly republican for decades. The grassroots activists really turned out and energized the state to big victories.

It feels so scrappy and so great and so earned. I’m so excited for 2018.
