A Message from Barney Frank

“I haven’t always been this partisan, and I hope not to be. The only way to break the stranglehold the far right has on the Republican party is for them to get badly beaten. To get to a less partisan situation, we have to be very partisan. We have to punish Republicans for their cowardice. That’s why this is so important.”

— Retired Congressman Barney Frank, addressing DVC supporters in Palo Alto

A Message from a DVC Volunteer

"The Democratic Volunteer Center is a gift that helps me make a better world for my grandson."

— DVC Volunteer, Mildred

August 7th primary and special election results

The analysis is clear: the results of the August 7th primary and special elections in Ohio, Washington, and other states should encourage Democrats across the country. While the possibility of a big blue wave looks strong, we must not be complacent. As the razor-thin margin in OH-12 shows, every single vote is going to matter this November.
