All Politics Is LocalEaghan Winter argues that over the last couple decades the Democratic Party has made a very risky strategic choice to abandon state and local races in order to win federal races while the GOP poured money into winning state governor seats and state congresses For Republicans it paid offFor Democrats and the American public the fallout has been catastrophic Abortion access is restricted than it has been in decades; gun control legislation has become even harder to pass. I thought this book might be a one note argument for investing in state and local politics however it offers so much Winter lays out the chronology and evolution of Democratic investments key players and organizing over the last 20 years which I found incredibly illuminating She also dives into a few key states which for various reasons serve as a bellwether and reflection of what has worked what hasn't worked and what is needed in order to sustain longterm positive change in everyday lives of Americans
