Connie Milstein is well known for her active participation in and support of the Democratic Party in the United States. As such Ms. Milstein has taken on the responsibility of Treasurer of the Democratic Governors Association.
At the moment the DGA represents and supports the 28 Democrats who hold the office of Governor. However, this past year combined with the coming year, 2010, thirty nine governors will be elected. For many of these states, who the governor will be will effect a generation of elections for congress and legislative races; due to the upcoming redistricting process which demarcates districts that crucially influences election outcomes.
The Republicans have clearly stated that they will be manipulating the redistricting process to their benefit. The DGA will be at the forefront making certain that the Republicans will not accomplish their stated goal.
