The WSDC is the new political organization of the Washington State Senate Democratic Caucus. Established in 2013, the WSDC is charged with electing and re-electing Democrats who will be active participants in our Caucus to the Washington State Senate.
As you are likely aware, before last year’s legislative session, a Republican majority took control of the Senate with assistance from two former members of our Caucus. With a one-seat majority, the Senate Republicans polarized the State Senate and forced us into the longest legislative session in decades, nearly shutting down state government.
Worse however, is what the Republican leadership prioritized after taking control. They immediately blocked critical legislation supporting women’s reproductive rights, equality, and protecting children from cancer causing chemicals while prioritizing payday lenders, polluters, and the NRA over the working families of Washington State.
The shameful actions taken by the Senate Republicans have energized our Caucus, and thousands of citizens like you, to become even more committed to winning back Democratic control of the State Senate in 2014. To advance our shared values, we must ensure progressive leadership of the Washington State Senate.
With your support, we will be able to strengthen the campaigns of our Senators and candidates with staff, financial, strategic, and grassroots assistance in our effort to re-take the Senate in 2014.
