There is a great deal to look back on from 2016 – what worked, what didn’t, and what we can do better to elect more Democrats to the House in next year’s midterm elections. What’s most important is that we have the right people in leadership positions who can expand our base and connect people with our message far and wide.
DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján is one of our strongest assets in that mission.
In less than a year of the Trump Administration, we’ve had to fight more battles against hate and ignorance than I ever thought would be necessary in 2017. From the Trump-Kobach voting rights intimidation commission, to the announced repeal of DACA, to Trump’s disgusting, unacceptable and continued remarks giving white supremacists and Nazis cover after the Charlottesville riots – we need to stand together as citizens against this hate.
And DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján is one of our best, toughest, and most reliable leaders - paving the way for A Better Deal for the American people.
Over the years, I’ve met many good people who want to work hard, do the right thing, and make Washington work for the American middle-class. The most effective leaders in that group are those who make tough, informed decisions and aren’t afraid to step into leadership roles.
One very special leader is my good friend, Congressman Ben Ray Luján, who has been a tremendous representative for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District.

In case you missed it, House and Senate Democrats unveiled A Better Deal for the American people.
Democrats are focusing like a laser beam on reversing wage stagnation and encouraging good-paying, full-time jobs.
