Sonoma County Democratic Party opposes DCCC blacklisting policy.

Resolution opposing DCCC’s blacklisting of firms working with primary challenges against incumbent U.S. House Democrats

WHEREAS the possibility of being challenged in a primary is one of the most effective way of holding our incumbent Democratic representatives accountable; and

WHEREAS shielding Democratic incumbents from Democratic primary challenges can be seen as an attempt to stifle our party’s democratic process in choosing the best candidates to assertively work for and uphold Democratic values, and principles as expressed in our Platform; and

WHEREAS the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the House Democrats’ campaign arm, is a PAC that has issued a rule that by effectively restricting campaign resources gives incumbents who already enjoy immense advantages, even further advantage over Democratic party primary challengers;

NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Sonoma County Democratic Party disapproves the undemocratic rule that weakens our party’s ability to nominate and elect the strongest leadership possible, and further erodes Democratic voters’ confidence and faith in our party’s adherence to fair election contests; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Sonoma County Democratic Party calls upon our representatives to the DNC to urge the DNC to demand that the DCCC rule be amended to only apply to challenges to incumbents in swing districts, or be withdrawn entirely.
