WASHINGTON — Last night, during live coverage of MSNBC’s Decision 2022, Symone Sanders celebrated the DLCC and its stunning performance in this weeks elections. Due to strategic investments by the committee, Democrats were able to secure key victories in state legislative races that bucked midterm trends to flip the Michigan and Minnesota legislatures red to blue while defending vulnerable Democratic majorities.

“… I also think we’ve got to give some credit to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee. They usually get no money, and they didn’t get any this cycle from the DNC — even though Jamie Harrison gave money elsewhere. They didn’t get any from the DNC, but they raised their own funds. They were facing headwinds in Colorado, Maine, Vermont, like you name it, and they held the line. That is testament to organizing, and to a laser-focus from Jessica Post and her team on the statehouses.”
The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. This cycle, the committee raised $50 million at its fastest pace ever to elect state Democrats across the country. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives.
