Its plan for the 2020 election, which it will unveil at a press conference on Sunday afternoon in New Hampshire, involves marshaling its thousands of members in the early primary states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina to pressure candidates on a host of potentially politically thorny questions about civil liberties at town halls and candidate forums.

“If we can get a big number of candidates to commit in a clear and unequivocal way to certain civil rights and civil liberties positions, that would be a win,” said Ronald Newman, the group’s interim national political director. (The previous political director, Faiz Shakir, is now Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager.)

Letting inmates vote on laws that could potentially overturn their convictions. What could go wrong?

Will Dems even support this?

They’re also pushing for abortion rights:

Good luck?
