Contest Every Race is a coalition with a clear goal — we work with anyone who will support local Democratic candidates and invest with us in the long-term capacity of Democratic and progressive organizing infrastructure outside of major cities.
Our major partners are Democratic State Party leadership. We’ve worked closely with state and local parties in 34+ states and with over 1,500 county party chairs. We also work closely with groups doing candidate recruitment and training, and with large organizations like MoveOn who recruit their members to run.
We’ve also collaborated deeply with many national and state focused candidate recruitment, candidate support, and party support organizations like Run for Something, Pipeline Fund, the National Democratic Training Committee, Democratic Rural Caucuses and rural oriented groups, and many more.
