WASHINGTON — In response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Moore v. Harper, interim DLCC President Heather Williams released the following statement:
“Today’s Supreme Court decision is momentary relief from MAGA extremists’ attacks on democracy, but the fight to protect our fundamental freedoms is far from over. As Republicans continue to undermine our elections, state legislatures remain the frontlines in the battle for our democracy. The DLCC is leading the charge to protect and expand Democratic power in state legislatures across the country to defend democracy at every turn. This fight is more important than ever and Democrats need to invest down ballot to ensure that our most fundamental freedoms are protected.
“The DLCC’s priorities this cycle include defending and expanding Democratic power in states like North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia – states where the legislative balance of power will determine the future of voting rights, redistricting, and elections administration for tens of millions of Americans. Without Democratic majorities in the states, MAGA Republicans will continue to pose a threat to our democracy and jeopardize elections at all levels of the ballot, including those for Congress and the White House.”
The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. Last year, the DLCC defied the odds by not losing any state legislative majorities, flipping four key chambers, and creating four new Democratic trifectas – the best midterm year for the party in power since at least 1934. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives.
