ICYMI: DLCC President Heather Williams Sits Down with ELLE Magazine to Discuss the Power of Statehouse Races in 2024 

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — DLCC President Heather Williams spoke to ELLE about how this year is the most important year in state legislative campaign history. With state legislatures deciding the future of reproductive freedoms, LGBTQ+ rights, book bans, and gun safety, this ballot level is shaping the landscape of fundamental rights and fueling energy for Democrats up and down the ticket. State Democrats have one of the best winning streaks in politics, and momentum at this ballot level could help combat election fatigue and safeguard freedoms for millions of Americans.

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.
