Sarah Jaynes highlights the importance of rural voters to establishing governing majorities in a recent story, “A 25-year-old from a small town leads North Carolina's Democratic Party toward 2024.”

“There's more base voters in the cities. There's a lot of persuadable voters in the suburbs. But in most states, that's not going to add up to a win in North Carolina and Wisconsin and Pennsylvania," said Sarah Jaynes, the executive director of Rural Democracy Initiative, which supports voters in rural communities.
