The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee

Over the past decade, the DLCC and our allies have fought cycle-over-cycle to gain a dozen new legislative chamber majorities and we are leading the effort to bring national attention and investment to our ballot level.

State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that most affect Americans’ day-to-day lives, from abortion access to voting rights to public education funding.

Taking back power at the state level.

The DLCC is the only organization responsible for the full, national landscape of state legislatures, crafting the long-term strategy to elect Democrats across the country. We are a permanent, year-round presence, overseeing work in all 50 states – fighting hardest in our battleground chambers while also laying the groundwork to build future Democratic infrastructure and majorities in red states. Our direct connections to legislative leaders as well as their caucuses and campaigns provide us with the full picture of opportunities and allow us to maximize our impact, making us the most strategic hub for investments to build Democratic power in the states.

We’re powered by more than 250,000 supporters from all 50 states. Over 99% of our contributions come from grassroots donors (giving an average of $39.40), who fuel thousands of local Democratic candidates across the country.

Building up Democratic majorities in the states is more important than ever. With right-wing extremists working to outlaw reproductive freedom and sabotage access to the ballot, it has never been more clear that our democracy is on the line – and the fight for our future is happening in the states. We’re counting on our supporters to get educated, get involved, and take action in their communities.

Our Mission

We’re fighting to kick right-wing extremists out of power and elect local Democrats who are committed to advancing policies that improve the lives of the people they serve.

By winning majorities and building Democratic power in the states, we are moving the party’s agenda of progress forward and shaping the future of this country.

Our Strategy

Our democracy can no longer afford for state legislative politics to take a backseat in America’s political consciousness. We have a bold, evidence-based plan to win majorities and build a path to 50 chambers by 2030, with clear power-building objectives for every cycle.

We don’t take any of our majorities for granted and will continue working to defend them while simultaneously mounting aggressive challenges in vulnerable Republican-controlled chambers. 

We are leading the effort to bring national attention and investment to this ballot level. Help us build the power to protect our communities from extremist MAGA assaults by making a donation or signing up to take action today.
