Subject: Target states for J Street's Iran campaign

John, It was good to see you Friday, and I really appreciate your taking time to hear about J Street's recent growth and to talk about how we can best relate to and assist the campaign, in particular on issues related to Israel and the Middle East. At the meeting, you asked me to forward the list of target states for our Iran related campaign. They are in two tiers (our top priority states where we've already hired local public affairs firms and the second tier where we hope to have the resources for targeted local advocacy). *TARGET STATES:* *Tier 1 - (Firms & Validator Tours):* CO MA MD MI OR *Tier 2 (in order of priority):* PA NJ DE VA MO WV MN I'm happy to provide any further information on the reasoning behind our priorities or the work that we're planning to do. As of now, we've raised $1.2 million to support our effort and our plan is to raise between $2 and $3 million. All the best, Jeremy
