VCDP News and Calendar of Events – 4/16/18


Discussion Issue of the Week:

Paul Ryan rides into the sunset

• With Ryan’s announcement, 25 GOP Congressmen and 3 GOP senators have announced their plans to retire. That’s not one or two, that’s a rush to the exits.

• In Indiana, we’ve seen a surge in first-time candidates, women candidates and millennial candidates step up to run and a sizable increase in the number of Statehouse districts Hoosier Democrats are contesting. The battleground is expanding nationally and right here.

• We can’t take anything for granted, we’ll have to rely on *grassroots organizing and we’ll win one conversation at a time, but Ryan’s exit is an eyebrow-raising data point.

*So be sure to attend one of the Neighborhood Leader Training sessions listed below on the VCDP calendar!

Also of note:

Women Indiana Democrats have a new organization – Hoosier Women Forward – that is, ”a political and civic leadership training program designed to empower Democratic women to become more active participants in politics and leaders in their communities.” Each year a group of twenty outstanding Democratic women will be selected to participate in a nine-month leadership training program.
