WASHINGTON — Today, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) announced 2024 Spotlight candidates in Nebraska, who provide opportunities to maintain and build Democratic power by returning a strong Democrat and flipping a seat. The two Spotlight candidates unveiled today are Victor Rountree, running for LD-3, and Mary Ann Folchert, running for LD-31.

Republicans’ extremism in Nebraska won’t go unanswered in November, and our Spotlight candidates in Nebraska represent two of the best opportunities to check the MAGA agenda in the legislature and continue Democrats’ momentum in the state. 

Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee President Heather Williams issued the following statement:

“The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is proud to announce our Spotlight candidates in Nebraska: Victor Rountree and Mary Ann Folchert. Republican power in Nebraska has stripped away fundamental freedoms and there’s no doubt that these candidates represent the best opportunities to chip away at Republican power in Nebraska and send a message to the GOP that they will be held accountable.

“The DLCC’s Spotlight program uplifts some of the most important candidates across the country, and we’re thrilled to unveil this slate of Nebraska candidates. As the only committee setting the agenda for the national landscape of state legislatures, our long-term strategy to build Democratic power includes highlighting champions of fundamental freedoms in every corner of the country. This is the most important ballot level, and 2024 is the year of the states.”

The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures and building state infrastructure. Over the last decade, we have fought cycle-over-cycle to gain a dozen new legislative chamber majorities and we are leading the effort to bring national attention and investment to our ballot level. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and have the closest connections to Americans’ day-to-day lives. From protecting fundamental freedoms and voting rights to growing the middle class, the DLCC and state legislators are moving the Democratic agenda forward and shaping the future of this country.
