WASHINGTON — With just a few weeks left until Election Day, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is releasing a strategy memo outlining the state of play for state legislatures and highlighting what is at stake for abortion rights and democracy across the country. Earlier this year, the DLCC launched its Path to the Majority strategy for the 2022 cycle that prioritized protecting Democratic power while making a play for vulnerable GOP majorities and laying the groundwork for durable Democratic power over the next decade.
“History tells us that this midterm cycle will be tough for Democrats, but the DLCC and state Democrats are ready to fight the MAGA movement, protect abortion rights, and save our democracy all across the map,” said DLCC President Jessica Post. “State Democrats need as many resources as possible to overcome historic headwinds and MAGA millions pouring into legislatures in order to protect Democratic majorities and challenge GOP control in key swing states. With so much at stake in state legislatures, the DLCC is committed to building durable power and countering the MAGA movement during this cycle and for cycles to come.”
The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that will have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives. In 2022, the DLCC remains focused on building critical power in the states by electing Democrats to statehouses across the country.
