Robby Rodriguez: "We want to build base or engage voters in areas where elections might be competitive. So we feel that we might get more traction working in a race where there’s actually competition – so people are more in-tuned to be paying attention, there’s more signs, there’s more activity and so we feel we might get more traction out of being there. The other reason is that, regardless of who wins, we can go to the candidate who did win, and if it was competitive they probably would have won by a smaller margin, and we can go and talk to them and we can say, “We talked to 300 voters who live in your district and this is what they said and this is why they came out and voted and they’re going to be holding you accountable.” And that can happen with people from that district themselves, having that conversation with the elected official."
