Last night, we made the rounds to several watch parties. We thanked incumbents for representing us and for running again. We congratulated new candidates on their wins and thanked everyone for stepping into the arena. Like never before, progressive candidates shined a light on important local issues and gave voters choices. Thank you to all of these candidates and their campaign teams. We know democracy takes a lot of work and we're proud of your efforts.Read more

The summary report by Trump's Attorney General raises as many questions as it answers. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that 1) Congress performs its Constitutional Duty and continues to investigate any and all potential crimes committed by this administration and 2) we remember that the only way we'll get this President out of office is at the ballot box in 2020. We join Democrats around the country in demanding that the Mueller report be made public as soon as possible.
This March and April, the McLean County Democrats are coordinating with Project Love the Ladies to provide feminine hygiene products for women in need.
"When I think of the many inspiring women who have shaped me into the person I am today, I keep coming back to my mentor from when I first began working in my profession. Jennifer Hannon has always been a compassionate, tenacious, and dedicated leader. In 2017, she was recognized as the Louisiana Social Worker of the Year at the National Association of Social Workers-Louisiana Conference for her amazing efforts to organize shelter and relief efforts during the 2016 flooding of Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. She is currently working for the state of Louisiana to ensure the availability of mental health services for children throughout the state. "
