7. Reaching out to rural and Red State voters is imperative for

the Democratic Party moving forward (I have included this thought in several recent DU posts).

Making rural voters is the most secure way for the Party to gain and retain control of Congress and not have disappointment in the Electoral College.

Rural USA is not monolithic; there are Democrats, Progressives, and Liberals. FDR had strong support in rural USA that has ebbed over the years. Some form of a Green New Deal is a great means to revive rural economies, much like the CCC, TVA, and various WPA in the 1930s.
