Press Releases

WASHINGTON — Earlier this afternoonDLCC President Heather Williams and Democratic House candidate Jim Prokopiak hosted a virtual press conference ahead of a must-win special election on February 13th that will shape the Pennsylvania House majority. 

Maintaining the Democratic majority would provide a vital check on the rampant extremism of the Republican Senate majority and ensure fundamental freedoms like abortion access are protected. On the heels of last week’s $50,000 investment to the Pennsylvania House Democratic Caucus, the DLCC is all hands on deck to ensure Jim Prokopiak emerges victorious.

DLCC President Heather Williams:

Jim Prokopiak:

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.
