For the first time ever, Democratic leadership from the State House and State Senate have joined efforts to ensure that each chamber has a campaign effort run by members, for members. The Arizona Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (ADLCC) is the only organization in the state of Arizona whose sole purpose is to elect Democrats to the State House and Senate. Our organization was created to achieve two main goals: to help elect Democrats to the Arizona State House and Senate and to gain Democratic majorities in both the Arizona State House and Senate. ADLCC staff will work to help all legislative candidates by offering baseline services such as template candidate materials and training (goal #1), and will give additional support to competitive swing districts which will help us gain Democratic majorities in each chamber (goal #2). Continue to watch our page for information on the legislative session, newly filed candidates, current caucus members, and any news regarding legislative politics in AZ.
We have 100% support for maintaining and spreading Arizona values.

In the 2016 election cycle, we helped Democrats gain 40% of the seats in the Senate.

Today in the Senate Commerce and Public Safety Committee, over 100 community members and advocacy groups signed in to speak in opposition to HCR2028, which would make it difficult for workers to prove their employer fired them after using paid sick-leave, asking for a wage increase, or requesting health benefits. Just over a[…]
It has been 25 days since the February 14th, school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida. 25 days since Republican Rep. Payne passed a bill in the Arizona House of Representatives that will make it legal for foster care parents to have loaded firearms in their household, without securing the firearm in a storage locker.[…]

On this #internationalwomensday the ADLCC is proudly celebrating our current and past legislative candidates that have run for office in Arizona! Arizona already has a larger number of female legislators than any other state, now its time for the #womeninblue to take over the House and Senate. With the appointment of Rep.Geraldine Peten to the state legislature last year, Arizona jumped to the[…]
The ADLCC has been down at the Capitol tracking the hundreds of legislative bills introduced. Most of these bills have made no progress, especially groundbreaking and progressive legislation introduced by Democrats. We have shared with you before the bills and progressive issues Democrats are championing this session, but now it is time to take a look at[…]
Last Week SCR1034, the “Republican #Powergrab” Sponsored by Sen. Yarbrough, passed the Senate on a party-line vote. While several of our Democratic Caucus members gave strong speeches as to why this legislation is unnecessary and severs to empower politicians, not voters; several Republican Caucus members spoke on the Senate floor as to how the Democrats “hijacked” the Independent Redistricting[…]
Last week, Republican Rep. Coleman passed HCR2007 out of the House of Representatives, which would make it illegal to make a donation to a political party as a Clean Elections candidate unless it is for access to voter data and illegal to donate money to nonprofits that engage in political activity. This bill[…]
Arizona’s current system relies on an independent, bipartisan commission to draw the maps of the districts for US Congress and for our legislature. These maps may seem boring, but they’re actually super important — if they’re drawn unfairly, one party can remain in power no matter which party most people actually vote for. In many[…]
It’s been a busy couple of weeks at the Legislature, so let’s have a look at all of the comings and goings. First, on Wednesday after another school shooting our Democratic caucus members Rep. Engle, Rep. Epstein, and Sen. Bedford strongly urged the legislature to stop playing partisan games with gun violence and to take real steps[…]
