Other races may get more attention, but state legislative elections matter enormously. The primary runoff Election Day is May 22.

With a majority of voters, we, the unaffiliated, can swing the upcoming Democratic primaries for tough, courageous candidates who aren't taking PAC money and who are calling the establishment Democrats out.
