Statehoods for DC & Puerto Rico Democrats will add an additional 4 Senatorial seats to the Senate

Come Jan 3rd when Dems take control of the Senate we need to push for statehoods for these 2 protectorates!! Hmm while i'm at it, maybe even Guam, Marianna Island, & American Somoa, and make it an even 10?

GOP have made our lives hell last 4 years. Let's protect our chances going forward & make it much harder for them to gain a majority in the years ahead!

Faster than the GOP's collective heads can spin. Payback time.

3. Guam would go republican due to the very large military population. The Mariana

islands are populated by slave-masters running factories, and they would make sure they went republican.

5. I don't know that Puerto Rico would swing Democratic. The statehood party aligns with the GOP.

Local politics isn't always what gets predicted, when new states are admitted.

7. It's hard to imagine that after what trump did, that Puerto Rico wouldn't lean to the

democratic party.

10. Agree, seriously dont think PR would lean Repugs after that fiasco

Dems just need to GOTV &sign up the citizens, like the GOP did w their southern strategy years ago.
