Anne Branigin highlights our research into “electability” in her article at the Root.
From the article:
‘White male over-representation is not about their superior pull with voters,’ the [Reflective Democracy Campaign] report concluded. ‘When voters have the opportunity to vote for women of all races and men of color, they choose them at the same rates as white men. Accordingly, the wider range of candidates on the ballot in 2018 resulted in more reflective elected leaders in 2019.’
