Strategy: 305+ Electoral Votes
Hawaii - 4 New Jersey - 14
California - 55 Massachusetts - 11
Oregon - 7 Rhode Island - 4
Washington - 12 Illinois - 20
Pennsylvania - 20 Minnesota - 10
Michigan - 16 Maine - 4

Maryland - 10 District of Columbia -3
Vermont - 3 Connecticut - 7
Our 18 "clinched" states have voted Democrat in the past four presidential elections and show no signs of ending this trend.
Our two likely democratic states have voted for a Democrat as president in three of the past four elections and will most likely vote Democrat again.
Battleground States
Nevada - 6
With a steadily increasing population of Latino voters, we are changing immigration policies to make it easier for people of poorer nations become legal residents in the U.S. This will decrease the amount of illegal immigration that hurts our economy and makes living here difficult for immigrants seeking help.
North Carolina -15
The most important issue for swing voters in North Carolina is education. We plan to increase spending on schools to buy new materials, increase benefits for teachers, and improve special education programs. We are running on the base that everyone deserves a good public school education because the youth are our future. With Latino voters compromising about thirty percent of the voting population in North Carolina, our stance on immigration will help us win their votes.
Florida -29
Our immigration policy will motivate the base democrat voters in Florida and our push for better public schooling will help us win the swing votes of the poorer Cuban and Puerto Rican immigrants.
Virginia - 13
Virginians are worried about low levels of employee compensation, so we are supporting the unions to fight for fair wages and benefits for hard-working Americans.
Colorado - 9
The majority of the population in Colorado is concerned about the U.S.'s energy supply. We are going to increase funding and research in renewable power like solar panels and hydropower, and we oppose the building of the 1,700 mile long keystone pipeline as it endangers many already threatened species.
Indiana - 11
Like many other states Indiana's education budget has major shortcomings. Our programs would increase spending on both materials and the training of faculty in America's public schools.
Ohio - 18
Ohio voters strongly support labor unions just like we do. To earn swing votes our push for renewable energy will create jobs in Ohio which will help decrease the unemployment rate.
Iowa - 6
Iowa voters support education reform including early literacy programs, online learning, and increased teacher pay, all of which we back. Also, they are debating the role nuclear power should have compared to other sources. Our plan to fund renewable power reduces the use of coal and natural gas as well, but there is no risk of nuclear mishaps that Iowans fear.
New Hampshire - 4
Local voters are concerned about the unemployment rate, but our increase in spending on renewable energy and education will provide jobs for middle class Americans.

Stump Speech
My fellow Americans,

Eight years ago Massachusetts first elected me as your governor. During my time in office our public school system skyrocketed from 28th to 4th in the nation. It is my strong belief that all children deserve an equal opportunity to learn. As President I would translate these ideas to a national level by increasing funding to all schools, bettering the benefits available to educators, and improving the experience and learning environment for special needs education. Like I said before, I believe all children should be allowed to learn, including those who have immigrated here from violence-ridden countries. Recently we have seen an increase of refugees from South and Central America trying to cross the border and find shelter in the United States. This poses an issue for our economy because illegal immigrants tend to not pay the same amount of taxes as immigrants who enter this country legally. I intend to work diligently towards tightening security on the border to prevent illegal immigration. This would prohibit foreign drug and weapons trafficking into the U.S. I also plan to pass a bill to better our citizenship program and make it easier for immigrants to become legal. This in turn, would help boost our economy. It would also improve their quality of life here, where they can feel safe from violence, disease, and other social issues.

Another way to help improve our country is to go green. Technology has increased exponentially in the past few years and has made clean energy possible. As President I will encourage every American to use renewable energy in their home and at work in order to protect our environment from becoming a wasteland. This would also help to decrease the rapid, unpredictable weather changes we have seen in these past winters. Along with increasing our clean energy output, I will prevent oil pumping in the Keystone Pipeline. This method of obtaining oil is dangerous for our wildlife. The risk of oil spillage is far too high and the toxic emission will pollute our air. As President I promise that no oil will run through those pipes. And so I stand here today, asking each and every one of you to elect me as your President.

Thank you.

Likely Democratic:
New Mexico - 5
Wisconsin - 10
