DSCC Announces Defend the Majority Program

$30 million investment in organizing programs will help lay the groundwork for Senate Democrats’ victory in 2022

Today the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is announcing the Defend the Majority program: a new, $30 million dollar investment commitment in 9 Senate battleground states (AZ, FL, GA, NC, NH, NV, OH, PA, WI) to help build the organizing infrastructure for Senate Democrats’ campaigns and Democrats running at every level of the ballot to win the 2022 general election.

This is the largest investment in on the ground field organizing ever made by the DSCC at this point in the campaign cycle. Additional states and funding could be added as the cycle continues. 

“Senate Democrats are delivering for the American people — now the DSCC is making early and historic investments in order to defend and expand Democrats’ majority in 2022,” said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Sen. Gary Peters. “The stakes in this election have never been higher: if Republicans take the Senate they’ll take our country backwards, and hard working Americans will pay the price. The midterm election will be a fight for the future of our country, and we look forward to joining with organizers, voters and communities across the country to win Senate races and defend the Democratic Senate majority Americans are counting on.” 

“Early, sustained organizing is how we win elections, and through our ‘Defend the Majority’ program the DSCC is building the ground game Democrats need to succeed in Senate battlegrounds across the country,” said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Executive Director Christie Roberts. “Our organizing programs are starting earlier than ever before, we’re taking nothing for granted and by building meaningful relationships with voters now, we are laying the groundwork for Democrats’ victory in 2022.” 

Defend the Majority will help fund: 

  • Field staff; 
  • DSCC field offices; 
  • Field training programs that will help increase volunteer capacity; 
  • Organizers focused building meaningful outreach to communities of color and specific constituencies– including Latino, Black, AAPI and younger voters;
  • Communications staff focused on defining GOP Senate candidates, and;

The investment will be made in partnership with Democratic State Parties and coordinated campaigns in each state. The DSCC previously announced it has partnered with Democratic Parties to launch coordinated campaigns so far this cycle in Arizona (Mission For Arizona), New Hampshire (OrganizeNH) and Nevada (Nevada Democratic Victory).  These coordinated campaigns have been launched at the earliest point in the campaign cycle in each state’s history.
