California Democratic Party – 2020 Coordinated Campaign

California Democratic Party
2020 Coordinated Campaign

Data Manager


The Campaign
We have a huge challenge and a great opportunity in 2020. Together we can elect strong Democrats from the local to the state level, help pass progressive ballot measures and play a national role in electing a Democratic President. We want to build a statewide coordinated program that make millions of phone calls, knocks on hundreds of thousands of doors, engages tens of thousands of volunteers and builds our capacity as a Party.

To do that we will need to build on the energy and great work of 2018 when thousands of volunteers across the state came out in large numbers day after day to flip 7 Congressional seats. In 2020 we want to be sure that every Democrat and every person who supports our Democratic ticket can find a way to pitch in – no matter where they live across the state and no matter whether they can volunteer full time every week or only for an hour here or there. To make that possible, we need to be well-organized, draw on all the talents of our Party leaders, activists and partner organizations, and utilize the most cutting-edge technological tools.

The Party will have two programs, one for Battleground counties where we have overlapping targeted races for Congress and State Senate and Assembly. And one for our Blue Wave counties where we’ll be building our base capacity.
