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.
