The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) is the Democratic Party organization that works to elect Democrats to U.S. state legislatures. The committee was formed after the 1992 elections by a group of Democratic state legislators and then-DNC chair David Wilhelm.
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) works to win state legislative seats and chambers for Democrats. The DLCC's mission is to build and maintain winning, state-of-the-art campaign committees in all 50 states by providing campaign services through a continuing partnership with legislative leaders, professional staff, and supporters. DLCC spending priorities are focused on legislative seats and chambers where they can impact Democratic majority status in the current election cycle.
The current chair of the DLCC is Mike Gronstal, former Majority Leader of the Iowa state Senate; he took over the chairmanship in 2007. The committee is led in its day-to-day operations by Jessica Post, a longtime Democratic campaign staffer, political operative, and field expert.
