DCCC Expands Its Voter-Outreach Efforts

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee rounded out its leadership team Wednesday, announcing a plethora of lawmakers to head outreach efforts to different voter groups.

According to a DCCC memo obtained by National Journal Daily, 14 Democrats will chair groups dedicated to reaching out to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community; recent immigrants; the labor movement; Native Americans; and defense companies. They will join efforts to recruit and support female and Latino candidates.


The committees are a testament, Democrats say, to their commitment to recruit a broad swath of voters and candidates to their cause. “The men and women in our leadership represent every corner of this great country, and we’re so proud that our caucus truly reflects what America looks like,” said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel of New York.
