Investment Strategy

Our research team identifies and vets candidates and reports their findings to the entire membership. Each ITE member decides in which of those candidates or voter engagement groups she wants to invest. Our four-pronged investment strategy for the 2022 election cycle is:
01

Invest in selected

incumbent Senators
02

Invest in selected

Senate challengers running for open or vulnerable GOP seats
03

Invest in selected

U.S. House races, to be determined after redistricting is finalized
04

Invest in organizations

that drive voter turnout to help our candidates win
