Democratic National Committee targets Wisconsin, 5 other states for ramped-up 2020 ground game – By Bill Glauber (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) / Jan 22 2020
After failing to keep their eyes on the prize of Wisconsin in 2016, Democrats are doubling down on organizing efforts to win the state during the 2020 presidential election.
On Wednesday, the Democratic National Committee unveiled what it called its 2020 Battleground buildup, adding more resources in six states, including Wisconsin.
The other states are Arizona, Florida, Michigan, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. The states are likely to determine the outcome of the race in November between the eventual Democratic nominee and President Donald Trump.
Democrats will nominate their presidential candidate during their convention in Milwaukee, July 13-16.
Democrats said they would be launching a multimillion-dollar effort to hire staff and open additional offices in the targeted states but did not provide a precise financial figure.
