DC is a small city, smaller than San Diego in Population
I’m excited for you guys to finally be able to have representation for yourselves. I am curious as to what you would name the state? We already have a Washington state and as a state, you shouldn't call yourself a district. Columbia is the feminine version of Columbus and I know that'll be a hard no for most of your residents. Have you guys thought of a new name yet?
Hello DC! I moderate Joe Biden for DC, the campaign’s official page. We’re only at 42 members right now, and I’d love to see that number grow. For comparison: -Joe Biden for Kentucky: 484 members -Joe Biden for Alabama: 580 members -Joe Biden for Indiana: 3.1k members I hope you’ll join our group, and invite your friends, to keep up with updates, events, and other news from #TeamJoe. I think we can outdo these deep red states!
Stay informed
Let's keep pushing for DC Statehood especially in the first 100 days of the new Congress in 2021 if not earlier. Forward march !
The whole purpose of establishing the Federal district was neutral ground, not attached to any one state, for the Federal government to conduct it's business, and it should stay neutral. As American citizens, if you want to live in a state, move to one!
a very bad idea!
What do you think of DC state hood and this video ?
https://statehood.dc.gov/ "We are at a historic moment in the movement for democracy in the nation’s capital! Residents of Washington, DC have been fighting for equal rights and voting representation in Congress for over 200 years, and 244,134 (86%) of DC voters APPROVE advisory referendum in support of DC statehood."
