DLCC’s Jessica Post on New York News
 
WASHINGTON — Today leaders in New York announced a reconciliation among Senate Democrats. DLCC Executive Director Jessica Post released the following statement:
 
“This is a wonderful day for New York. We are so proud that our DLCC Board Member Andrea Stewart-Cousins can take her rightful place in history as the first woman to lead the Senate in New York. After years of Republicans voting against the will of their constituents and trying to turn back the clock on women’s rights, health care, environmental protections, and criminal justice reform, Leader Stewart-Cousins will now finally be empowered to use her leadership to unify state Democrats and pass meaningful and progressive legislation that will help all New Yorkers. We look forward to working with Leader Stewart-Cousins to bring home wins in special elections on April 24 and all the way through the midterms.”
 
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 39 seats since Trump’s inauguration. The DLCC is building on Democrats’ winning momentum and continues to lay the groundwork for substantial gains in 2018 in statehouses nationwide. State Democrats recently scored critical victories in MassachusettsConnecticutNew HampshireKentuckyFlorida, MinnesotaMissouri, and elsewhere, while also leading the resistance against the Trump administration’s extremist policies.
