Rep. Steven Horsford (NV-04) – Frontline Co-Chair 

“It’s more important than ever for Democrats in Congress to keep delivering for the American people, and Chairman Maloney understands how important our Frontline seats are to doing that work. I’m looking forward to working both with him and our incredible Frontliners to protect our House majority so we can keep delivering real relief to our communities.”

Rep. Jennifer Wexton (VA-10) – Frontline Co-Chair 

“In the last midterm elections, our nation saw so many talented Democrats flip seats across the country from red to blue, and it’s critical we protect their seats going into 2022. I’m ready to get to work with Chairman Maloney and stand shoulder to shoulder with our Frontliners to help them win re-election so we can continue building on the success our Democratic House majority has achieved.”

Rep. Sara Jacobs (CA-53) – Recruitment Co-Chair 

“There are so many Democrats, from coast to coast, who are ready to answer the call to service and help us grow our House majority.

“The Democrats are the party of the vast majority of Americans and it’s our historic assignment in the DCCC to organize this majority into powerfully successful voting coalitions in all 50 states. Organizing is the only way we can counter and overcome the GOP’s manipulation of gerrymandering, dark money, and tactics of voter suppression and disenfranchisement to entrench their minority rule.

We will defend and expand our House majority on the ground through grassroots infrastructure and organizing.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (CA-28) – National Battleground Finance Chair

Rep. Barbara Lee (CA-13) – Winning With Women of Color Chair

“Chairman Maloney has proven he’s committed to leading the DCCC in a way that better reflects the incredible diversity of our party.

Scott and Chairman Maloney and help lead the DCCC’s efforts with organized labor. I’m committed to making sure the labor movement’s priorities continue to be heard by Democrats and incorporated into our priorities.”

Rep. Bobby Scott (VA-03) – Labor Co-Chair 

“The Democratic party is a party that works for the people, and that means uplifting hardworking Americans in the middle class and those fighting for organized labor.
