DLCC Communications Director
After flipping 39 seats from red to blue, DLCC reinforces Board of Directors with new member
"It is an honor and a privilege to be appointed to the Board of Directors of the DLCC," said Leader Greenwald. "Our success in legislative elections in New Jersey speak for themselves. We added the most Democratic seats to our Assembly and Senate chambers in the nation over the last decade, almost all of which were gained under a Republican governor.
"Momentum is clearly on our side as we will look aggressively to flip seats and win state houses across the country. I am immensely excited about the opportunity to replicate our successes beyond just New Jersey and help elect Democrats nationwide."
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 Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Kentucky, Florida, Minnesota, Missouri, and elsewhere, while also leading the resistance against the Trump administration’s extremist policies.
