-- Enhanced DLCC GVP Initiative Poised to Double 2012 Field Efforts, Broaden Opportunity for Democratic Success in 2014 Mid-Term Elections --
Following the electoral success it helped produce during the 2012 election season, the DLCC's Grassroots Victory Program (GVP) marks its entry into the 2014 mid-term election cycle with the launch of www.GrassRootsVictoryProgram.com. This organizer recruitment portal is among several enhancements designed to broaden the GVP’s ability to build and maintain state-of-the-art field programs for Democratic legislative candidates across the U.S.
“In 2012, the DLCC’s Grassroots Victory Program made the difference in key legislative races in Iowa, Nevada, Oregon, Arkansas, and elsewhere. The DLCC identified a need to provide battleground states with the field resources and infrastructure to win close campaigns on the margins, and the GVP was the centerpiece of our plan to fulfill that need,” says Iowa Senate Majority Leader Michael E. Gronstal, Chairman of the DLCC Board of Directors. “As we enter 2014, we will double the size and breadth of the GVP in order to secure even more Democratic victories in statehouses across the U.S.”
