DemDaily: The 2023 Election Calendar! The Updates

August 27, 2023

While the August congressional recess may have slowed Washington to a humid crawl, it was a busy month for a handful of municipal and statewide elections across the country.

Democrats advanced to the November general election from key non-partisan mayoral primaries in Tucson, Wichita, Olympia and Spokane, while in Nashville, Metro Council member Freddie O'Connell (D) and former GOP consultant Alice Rolli are headed to a September 14 mayoral runoff.

In Mississippi, Public Commissioner and former Nettleton Mayor Brandon Presley is his party's nominee to challenge GOP Governor Tate Reeves in 2023's most high-profile statewide contest.

Montgomery, Alabama has reelected Incumbent Mayor Steven Reed (D), and Ohio voters resoundingly rejected Ohio Issue 1, a special election referendum aimed at thwarting passage of an abortion-rights initiative that will be on the ballot in November.

Throughout the Summer, DemList has kept you informed. While you were on vacation, we covered the frontlines -- through the heat wave and political storms, strikes and elections. arrests and arraignments. Please say thank you with a $15, $25 or $50 contribution here! We are still far short of our August fundraising goals.
