Enjoy Your Democratic Majorities? So Do We!

Next Generation Democrats is a newly created organization and PAC to help cement our Democratic majorities gained in the 2006 elections by helping the next generation of Democratic leaders NOW, so that they are ready to step up as the current generation of leaders steps down.
We just wanted to introduce ourselves and let you know a little bit about us. Our four founders are all young Democrats under the age of 25 with a combined total of 16 campaigns of experience.
Basically, we intend on helping the next generation of Democratic leadership now in two ways. First, we will give direct campaign donations to candidates under the age of 40 (at all levels, with a focus more on local level elections) that meet our values. Secondly, we intend to give earmarked donations to NGD endorsed candidates of any age for matching funds to help pay for young campaign staffers just starting out under the age of 28. We will also be assisting campaign staffers we support with trainings and guidance.
We are starting out strong! In our first week alone, we raisedclose to $400 for Ciro Rodriguez for the runoff election in Texas, and over $1,100 for ourselves just from friends and family. Now that we have reached out to our closest and have some seed money, we wanted to reach out to you and introduce ourselves.
