NBC News: For Our Future budgeting $80 mil to help progressives in 2020
“Justin Myers, the group’s CEO, told NBC News on Tuesday that the budget will go toward funding a program that includes field organizers, strategists, communications, digital ads, text messaging and more tools across target states.The group is locked in on continuing its operations in the seven states where it invested last cycle—Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin—with “conversations ongoing” as to whether to expand its reach this cycle.
Myers added that much of the group’s work is informed by its door-knock program—it knocked on 9 million doors during the 2018 cycle, leading to 1.5 million in-person conversations that helped the organization create a feedback loop to inform how it targets voters to turn out. ‘Progressives do have a real message that folks will gravitate toward if it is actually told.'”
