DNC Meeting
  • President Obama: “Support Democrats and Enter a Chance to Win”

    President Obama sent an email to supporters emphasizing the importance that 2014 will make for the progress of our country. He encouraged them to chip in to support Democrats and they will be entered for a chance to meet him at the 2014 Winter Meeting at the end of February. Here's what he had to say: 

    We've accomplished so much together over the last several years, and none of it would have been possible without you.

    On November 4th, America will elect the last Congress I will work with as President, and I'm going to do everything I can to help support the Democrats who are going to fight for an America where everyone has a fair shot at success.

    Today, I'm asking you to do the same. Chip in $10 or whatever you can to help Democrats, and when you do, you will be automatically entered to meet me in D.C. later this month.

    I won't be on the ballot this fall, but these midterm elections will have an outsized impact on what we're able to get done while I'm in office.

    There's so much more we can be doing to create opportunity for our family members and neighbors. We cannot afford to move back or stand still. This year has to be a year of action for all of us.

    Pitch in to elect more Democrats today:

    Thanks,

    Barack Obama

    P.S. -- Don't worry about your flight and hotel -- if you win, those will be covered for you and a guest. Support Democrats today, and automatically enter for a chance to meet me later this month in D.C.

     

  • Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “Four things you need to know”

    In an email, Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz shared the Democrats' four-point strategy for winning elections in 2013, 2014 and beyond and encouraged supporters to get involved.

    Friend --

    I just got back from the DNC summer meeting in Arizona, so I thought I'd let you in on our strategy for the upcoming year and beyond (because I'm really excited about it).

    We have a four-pronged plan for the coming year:

    Recruiting and training top talent. Our party is only as strong as the people in it. So we're going to focus on identifying great candidates for state and local offices, training organizers across the country, and helping talented young people from all backgrounds break into politics through our Hope Institute program.

    Maintaining and building our digital edge. A big part of the reason we won last year is because our online program and tools were light years ahead of the Republicans. But that's the thing about cutting-edge technology -- it stops being cutting-edge pretty quickly. We're not going to rest on our laurels. We're going to work hard to maintain our edge while developing the next generation of tools.

    Expanding access to the ballot box. Every single thing we do as a party centers on our most fundamental right as Americans -- the right to vote. You've seen Republicans across the country restrict that right by taking advantage of the recent Supreme Court decision to gut the Voting Rights Act. And we're going to be fighting back by launching a national voter protection program.

    Holding Republicans accountable and promoting the Democratic agenda. You've heard Republicans talk a lot about how they're "rebranding" their party and agenda to be more inclusive after last year's election. But if you've been paying attention to the policies they're supporting, you've noticed that they've only gotten more extreme. We're going to make sure they don't get away with that bait-and-switch.

    Many people are going to work very hard to make sure this plan succeeds, but I have to be straight with you: a main factor in its success or failure will be whether we have the resources to pull it off.

    Chip in $10 or more today and make sure we can put our plan into motion:

    This is a winning plan -- and I can't wait to get to work on it with you, because we saw last year what we're capable of.

    Thanks,

    Debbie

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz
    Chair
    Democratic National Committee


    P.S. -- You've seen what we can do when we get this organization operating at its peak -- let's do it again.

  • Learning, Sharing, and Organizing: How We’ll Continue to Win

    Last week, Democrats from across our country gathered in Minneapolis for a meeting of the Association of State Democratic Chairs. But it was so much more than just a meeting. It was an opportunity to share best practices, learn from each other on what's worked well in different states and continue to be on the cutting edge of organizing, technology and strategy. While the Republicans work on their "rebrand," we'll stick with our Democratic principles, and keep doing what works to win.
