SLEEPING BAGS

-

According to a published list of the party’s targets, the Democrats will be zeroing in on battlegrou­nd districts in California and Colorado in the 2018 midterm election. One thing those two states have in common is selling sleeping bags to Canada and, now, a tariff on them. The Democrats are targeting no less than eight districts in California, the biggest sleeping bag exporting state to Canada. Wiggy’s — an outdoor apparel company based in Grand Junction, Colorado, that supplies gear to the U.S. military — is based in a district represente­d by the vulnerable Republican Scott Tipton. His district leans slightly Republican, compared to the national average, but could be one of the first to go in a Democratic wave election.
