Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee

Rebuilding the Democratic Party starts at the local level. The DLCC recruits, trains, and supports local Democrats running for state legislative office. The DLCC gives candidates resources, field support, and the data they need to run smart, winning campaigns.


The DLCC is powered by nearly 150,000 supporters from all 50 states. Over 98% of our contributions come from grassroots donors (giving an average of $16), who fuel thousands of local Democratic candidates across the country.

Annie’s List was started in 2003 by a small group of women who saw our representation being eliminated in the Texas Legislature. Executing on the plan of Karl Rove, House Republicans specifically targeted Democratic women for elimination in the 2001 redistricting process. The result? Five Democratic women did not return to the Lege in 2003 and Democrats lost their majority in the Texas House for the first time since reconstruction.

The Republican leadership then balanced a $10 billion budget deficit by slashing programs that supported the needs of women and children -- cutting and diverting funds from CHIP, Medicaid, prenatal care, textbooks and more.  Annie’s List was born and dedicated to recruiting, training and supporting progressive women candidates across the state.
