WASHINGTON – Last week, Axios reported on the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee’s record-setting grassroots fundraising numbers in 2023 – the latest sign yet of historic energy and momentum behind the DLCC and building infrastructure in the states.
So far this year, the DLCC has raised a staggering $5.5 million from small-dollar donors – a 145% jump from 2019, the last comparable year. 2023 brought sweeping wins in special elections and key November races, and 2024 will have the most expansive map yet thanks to the DLCC’s impressive and growing fundraising and organizational power.
One thing is for certain: the energy is with state-level Democrats in 2024 and 2024 will be the year of the states.

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures and building state infrastructure. Over the last decade, we 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 have the closest connections to Americans’ day-to-day lives. From protecting fundamental freedoms and voting rights to growing the middle class, the DLCC and state legislators are moving the Democratic agenda forward and shaping the future of this country.
