The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC)
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the sole organization dedicated to electing Democrats to statehouses. Since 2016, the DLCC and state partners have flipped more than 450 seats from red to blue, building ten new Democratic majorities and paving the way for progress across the country. State legislatures pass the policies that most affect Americans’ day-to-day lives, and flipping chambers from red to blue has an outsized impact on governing and public policy.
Taking back power starts at the local level. The DLCC recruits, trains, and supports local Democrats running for their state legislatures. We provide our candidates with the resources, field support, and data necessary to run smart, winning campaigns. By gaining a foothold in state legislatures, Democrats can engage supporters across the country and prepare for victories in statewide and national elections.
We’re powered by nearly 150,000 supporters from all 50 states. Over 98% of our contributions come from grassroots donors (giving an average of $16), who fuel thousands of local Democratic candidates across the country.
Our Democratic legislatures are truly the last line of defense against the Trump administration and Republicans’ extreme policies. With redistricting on the horizon, our democracy is on the line in 2020. We’re counting on our supporters to get educated, involved, and take action in their communities.
