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.

We are committed to electing Democrats. You can help.
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[…]
As of Friday, the Opioid Special Session has concluded sine die. During the week we saw Democrats working diligently to pass the Opioid Epidemic Act, which is an initial step to address an ongoing crisis in Arizona. Through strong leadership from House and Senate leaders, Rebecca Rios and Katie Hobbs the Opioid Epidemic Act passed unanimously through the[…]
The 2018 Legislative Session is off and running! Although this is a Campaign year with many Legislative District seats up for grabs, the Democratic Caucus is still focused on pushing forward progressive legislation that moves Arizona forward. At the start of the session, the Democratic Caucus announced their priorities for the session led by Minority Senate Leader, Sen. Katie Hobbs,[…]
We are only a few days away from the start of the 2018 Legislative Session. This session will be kicked off with several rallies and marches at the start of the session by grassroots groups and established non-profits, pushing for progress and change at the legislature. One of these rallies stands out in particular, as[…]
Both conservatives and liberals are denouncing President Trump’s pardon, which spared Joe Arpaio a jail sentence in his conviction of criminal contempt. On Friday, the White House released a statement saying Arpaio “continued his life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration.” Most people would disagree. In fact, the[…]
HB 2364, which gained national attention as it allowed employers to fire someone who was gay or transgender, was still not addressed by the Republican legislature in this legislative session. Democratic lawmakers have been fighting to include sexual orientation and gender identity in existing anti-discrimination laws, but state Republicans have once again chosen to keep[…]
Governor Doug Ducey signed into law a controversial measure allowing more people who lack formal teacher training to teach in public schools. SB 1042 changes existing standards, which require tests of professional proficiency, and instead allows anyone with “expertise in a content area or subject matter” to teach. Ducey claims that the bill will allow[…]
The budget battle this year once again left Arizona Democrats behind as state Republicans gained almost everything that they wanted. Governor Doug Ducey, who faced criticism when he slashed education budgets in 2015, pushed for increased funding for universities, which could help him in his bid for reelection in 2018. The funding increased research[…]
GOP lawmakers are once again relying on taxpayer money to fight their battles as they try to remove the obstacles facing HB 2244, which places stricter requirements on citizen initiatives. They have hired the law firm of Cantelme and Brown according to public records obtained by The Arizona Republic. The firm charges as much as $310[…]
