About Us

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is the only organization solely dedicated to electing a Democratic Senate. From grassroots organizing to candidate recruitment to providing campaign funds for tight races, the DSCC is working hard all year, every year to elect Democrats – and give President Obama the help he needs on Capitol Hill to move our country forward.

Democrats have accomplished so much already: historic health care reform, the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the biggest overhaul of the financial sector since the Great Depression, the extension of crucial unemployment benefits, legislation to get our economy back on track and credit card reform. But Republican senators are using tactics like the filibuster more often than at any time in history and are blocking key reforms America needs. The loss of our Democratic majority in the Senate would make it that much harder to move our country in the right direction.

The next two years offer unique challenges. Republicans have their sights set on retaking the Senate, stopping President Obama’s agenda and reversing all the progress we’ve made. That’s why the DSCC is already hard at work. We’re fighting to protect our Democratic champions, and we’re recruiting outstanding candidates across the nation to challenge obstructionist Republicans.

Our success depends on our large network of grassroots supporters. We encourage dedicated Democrats to get educated, engaged and involved. Supporting the DSCC is one of the most effective steps you can take to help President Obama succeed – and keep the Senate in Democratic hands.
