We already had a narrow path to keeping the senate in 2024, even before Manchin decided not to run for Senate in 2024. Now the path is quite daunting, and we pretty much have to run the table in order to have a majority in the Senate. And 50-50 won’t help, unless we keep the White House.
So… how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.
Today’s bite is Montana, where we can keep Jon Tester in the senate, and turn one of the two House seats from red to blue.
The Native vote in Montana is 6.5% of the population, and that’s more than enough to get the results we want, if enough of them turn out to vote, and if they vote blue.
When Four Directions is active in the state, the Native vote in Montana tends to go 97% for the Democrats. In 2016, 2020, and 2022 – when Four Directions was not active with the Montana tribes – the democratic vote fell off a cliff, and the tribal vote went for Republicans.
We can’t afford to lose Montana.
Maxim sent me this great quote from Howard Zinn, which still seems relevant today.
