DNC Funds New Louisiana Democratic Party Communications Director

Today, the Louisiana Democratic Party is announcing that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) is granting the LDP’s request to fund a new Communications Director to drive messaging and expand outreach for Democrats up and down the ballot in the Pelican State. 

As a former state party chair, I know just how critical it is to reach out to voters in every corner of every state to strengthen our party,” DNC Chair Jaime Harrison said. “The DNC is proud to make this investment in the Louisiana Democratic Party’s messaging and outreach apparatus to help elect more Democrats up and down the ballot, and we’re committed to helping build the critical infrastructure Louisiana Democrats need to win up and down the ballot this year and beyond.”

“The Louisiana Democratic Party is thrilled to be receiving a new investment from the DNC to support the expansion of Louisiana Democrats’ messaging and fundraising apparatus,” LDP Chair Katie Bernhardt said. “The LDP is grateful to the leadership at the DNC for helping to bolster our resources and defend our state from Republicans’ unrelenting ultra-MAGA agenda.”

Louisiana is the only state in the Deep South with a two-term Democratic governor. In order to motivate and expand the Democratic voter base in the state, the LDP will be focused on an intensive and targeted campaign to register and turn out more Democratic voters and an aggressive messaging campaign to make sure that Louisiana voters know that while Republicans are pushing an ultra-MAGA agenda, Democrats are focused on delivering results. The Communications Director will also be responsible for the party’s email fundraising program, which will be critical to Louisiana Democrats’ efforts to launch a robust and targeted voter registration program. 

This grant is part of the DNC’s Red State Fund, which was established last year under the leadership of DNC Chair Jaime Harrison to put Republicans on defense and build tailored programs in traditionally Republican states.
