In four short years, Colorado Republicans experienced one of the most stunning reversals of political fortune in American history. It was, in the words of former Colorado governor Bill Owens, “a wake-up call for national Republicans.” In Colorado, Democrats believe they have found the blueprint for creating a permanent political infrastructure across the nation. At a time when political stakes are higher than ever, the direction of the nation may turn on how well Democrats across the country replicate the model…and how well Republicans can respond to it.
The Blueprint takes you inside the smoke-free backrooms of progressive politics, where megadonors and savvy strategists created a plan to turn the tide of American elections. With unprecedented access to players on both sides of the aisle, the authors offer what Netroots Nation chairman Adam Bonin calls “an essential, behind-the-scenes take” on the powerful but often invisible groups that are shaping public policy in state capitols from coast to coast. Featuring up-to-the-minute analysis, including a new epilogue exploring the upcoming midterm elections, The Blueprint is the must-read political book of the season.
This is The Blueprint…and it’s coming soon to a state near you.
