DLCC Sets New Fundraising Record in September
The organization raised $8.3 million in the third quarter
WASHINGTON — After breaking its previous fundraising record in August, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) Executive Director Jessica Post has announced that the committee has once again reached new heights with the help of its dedicated group of grassroots supporters.
Thanks to an influx of support and over 17,000 online donations, the DLCC raised $3.6 million in September, totaling $8.3 million raised in the third quarter, and $30 million raised so far this cycle, all-time high records for the organization. In addition to this critical haul, the DLCC is proud to announce that its extensive network of supporters has already knocked on nearly 7 million doors and will continue to pound the pavement to reach voters about the importance of voting in the midterm elections.
“Breaking new records month after month is proof positive that Americans are ready to vote for change, and the DLCC is hard at work creating winning strategies for state legislative races around the country. We’re helping campaigns execute smart field programs, utilize innovative data modeling and analysis, and working with grassroots supporters to harness the unprecedented Democratic momentum that continues to grow around the country,” said Jessica Post. “Now it comes down to the shoe leather of democracy – we’ve got to keep knocking on doors and reaching out to voters over the next 35 days to elect more state Democrats and reclaim our state legislatures.”
After flipping 44 state legislative seats since Trump was elected, the DLCC and state Democrats are sending a message that there is no such thing as a “safe Republican” district. The DLCC is committed to making sure our candidates and in-state partners have the training, data, expertise, resources, and anything else they need to win this November. With Democrats only 17 seats away from flipping eight chambers and critical majorities on the line, the DLCC is confident headed into Election Day.
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is the only organization exclusively committed to electing Democrats to state legislatures all over the country and winning Democratic control of chambers. For over two decades, the DLCC has been working with state legislative leaders to invest strategically in state programs, which has led to Democrats flipping 44 seats since Trump was elected. The DLCC is building on Democrats’ winning momentum and continues to lay the groundwork for substantial gains in 2018 in statehouses nationwide. State Democrats are leading the resistance against the Trump administration’s extremist policies.
