Nevada Republicans have now chosen an Assembly Speaker who 'proudly' flies the Confederate battle flag and complains about 'the lack of gratitude' among 'Negro leaders' for the fact that slavery has ended."

This has been a record-breaking year for us. We had our best fundraising year to date, recruited some of the best candidates we’ve ever seen, knocked on more doors than ever before-- but it just wasn’t enough to overcome the difficult political environment. Since 2010, Democrats have faced an unfriendly map on both national and state levels, but our successful voter turnout efforts produced important gains in the North Carolina House and defended the Iowa Senate and Kentucky House.

2012 was a very successful election for state legislative Democrats. We gained eight new majorities, defended eight other narrow Democratic majorities, netted nearly 200 seats nationwide, and gained seats in seven states that were carried by Mitt Romney. After every big election victory, the winners have a lot more to defend the next cycle. And frankly, Democrats aren't afraid of playing a little defense.

"We believe circuit judge elections should be decided not on the basis of political parties or campaign contributions, but on which candidate is most knowledgeable, deliberative and fair in dispensing justice."
