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 43% of the seats in the House.
In the 2016 election cycle, we helped Democrats gain 40% of the seats in the Senate.
We are hoping to gain a majority in the state legislature so that we can push for the change that we need.
We are committed to electing Democrats. You can help.
