Press Release by the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee

FIVE SPECIAL ELECTIONS, FIVE OVERPERFORMANCES: After Special Election Victories in Michigan, The DLCC’s Winning Strategy Gives a Roadmap for Democratic Success in November.

The DLCC’s impressive streak of overperformance in special elections continues after DLCC Spotlight candidates Peter Herzberg and Mai Xiong emerged victorious in their House races in Michigan last night, protecting the Democratic trifecta and delivering a strong rebuke of GOP extremism.

Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Communications Director Abhi Rahman issued the following statement:

“In the face of rampant GOP extremism, voters continue to line up in force behind Democrats who champion fundamental freedoms. Everything from abortion access to democracy to LGBTQ+ freedoms is being decided in the states, and voters are holding Republicans accountable at the polls for their egregious attacks. From the heart of red-state territory in Alabama and Florida to the most competitive battleground states in Michigan and Pennsylvania, the DLCC has shown it has a roadmap for success. Our momentum is undeniable as we continue to build on our victories from 2022 and 2023. These victories bode well for candidates up and down the ballot in November, and we look forward to more success for Democrats in state legislatures as they push for progress in their states. 2024 is the most important year in state legislative history – this is the year of the states.”
