Hello Democrats and happy Friday!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our terrific State Committee Meeting in Bellingham last weekend! It was a privilege to meet with Party Leaders from across the state and we were thrilled to get folks trained up and ready to roll on delegate selection for this Summer’s Convention!

We were also excited to have the opportunity to introduce our Party leaders and volunteers to new members of our Coordinated Campaign team and help kickstart what are sure to be positive, productive relationships across the State!

Cheers to our great Democratic team – we have a lot of work to do this year but I’m confident that together, we can win the most competitive races statewide and build an even more Democratic Washington!

Save the Date! Grassroots Happy Hour on 2/15 in Olympia!

Democrats are off to a running start in 2024 – but we need your support and investment to launch and scale a massive Coordinated Campaign to help every candidate on the ballot win this November!

We need everyone to get engaged now if we want our best chance at victory – and I wanted to personally invite you to an exciting event we’re building next month to fuel our statewide efforts.

Please join us at Octapas Cafe in Olympia on Thursday, February 15th for a special happy hour with Democratic legislators, Democratic Party leaders, and top Party partners, to discuss the exciting legislative session and all our hard work to support Democrats in 2024!

We’re also incredibly thankful to Lt. Governor Denny Heck for sponsoring this event and making it possible for us to gather as a party. Next time you see him or his staff, please thank him for us for his commitment to civil discourse and engagement with the legislative process.

You can RSVP online here – and please direct all question and sponsorship inquiries to joebarden@wa-democrats.org.

We hope you can make it!
