Book Nook: Harvest the Vote: How Democrats Can Win Again in Rural America, by Jane Kleeb

Jane Kleeb believes the Democratic Party has a serious problem and if they remain unwilling to recognize it and attempt to fix it they stand little chance of regaining a US Senate majority or even getting another candidate elected to the White House. The problem as Kleeb sees it is this: the Democrats have written off rural voters. Their national candidates can hardly be bothered to campaign in rural areas. Rural voters feel marginalized and ignored as a result. Kleeb knows what she is talking about, she's the head of the Democratic Party in the very rural state of Nebraska.

In her book "Harvest the Vote: How Democrats Can Win Again in Rural America" Kleeb offers suggestions on how her party can address this problem and ways that they can repair the damage that has been done with this approach to the rural electorate.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
