CDP Weekly Update

It’s been another productive week for the CDP. See below for a recap of this week’s activities.

Convention Registration is Open

Registration for the 2018 California Democrats State Convention is now open! Check out for hotel information, information on endorsements and platform, and registration links to our new Member Portal…

New Member Portal

As Democrats, we must be continually striving to improve how we do the work of advancing our progressive values. That’s why we spend so much time training ourselves as activists. That’s why we spend so much time organizing the communities we live in. And that’s why we are always looking to improve the technology that helps us do our jobs as Democratic Activists. This week, we launched a new Member Portal for Delegates as part of that ongoing effort to make sure we’re using every possible tool at our disposal in the fight for our progressive values.

Right now, the Member Portal is set up to make the registration process for Convention faster and more efficient for Delegates. We know that Convention Weekend is already a significant financial expense, so we are doing what we can to ensure Delegates get the most out of the weekend – like reducing the time spent waiting in line to get their credential.

And as time goes on, we will be adding new features to the Member Portal. Registration is a floor, not a ceiling, when it comes to the capabilities of this platform. CDP Staff and Chair Bauman have been working with the folks at Political Data, Inc. to custom-build a system that works better for Delegates, our Accounting & Finance Department, and our Communications and Political Departments.

There are a number of reasons we’re excited about the launch of the new Member Portal (aside from – fingers crossed! – reducing those lines at registration). But the most important reason is this: we wanted to build a platform that empowers our Delegates as leaders of the California Democratic Party. And as the Member Portal grows and expands, we hope you’ll agree that is exactly what this exciting new platform does.

The Republican Tax Theft for the Rich Act

Let’s be clear: this is a disgusting, greedy law that gives away trillions of dollars to people like Donald Trump, Betsey Devos, Darrell Issa and Jeff Denham. California Democrats, from Nancy Pelosi in the House to Grassroots Democrats up and down California mobilized to stop this monstrosity. Thank you to everyone who called their Representatives and got the word out on social media. This tax bill might be law, but it’s an incredibly unpopular law, thanks in huge part to the Grassroots Democrats who successfully debunked all the GOP lies about the Tax Theft  for the Rich Act.

Darrell Issa’s pals voted to sell us out to oil executives, liquor manufacturers, Wall Street bankers, outsourcing CEOs and corruptible members of the Senate with vast real estate holdings and undisclosed investments (looking at you, Bob Corker).  And we must spend every day of the next 11 months reminding California voters of that simple fact. 

See you in 2018!

CDP Update will be back in January. Until then, we hope this Holiday Season is one of joy and warmth for you and your loved ones. From all of us at the CDP… Peace on Earth, and Happy Blue Year!

Defeat Roy Moore on Tuesday


Alabama voters go to the polls on Tues‌day to elect a new United States Senator, and with the launch of the Doug Jones online phone bank, California Democrats can make the crucial phone calls necessary to help put our candidate over the top.

Click here to phone bank from home.

The Republican candidate, Roy Moore, is an accused child predator who should be on trial for the sick allegations that have been made against him by multiple women, not running for the U.S. Senate.

Doug Jones, the Democratic nominee, is a compassionate, thoughtful, and dedicated outsider who genuinely believes in public service. He successfully prosecuted the white supremacists who committed one of the most infamous acts of domestic terrorism — the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church that killed four little girls.

Doug Jones is a candidate worth fighting for, regardless of the fact that he’s running against a monster. But let’s be clear: Roy Moore is a monster, and we must do everything we can to elect Doug Jones on Tues‌day.

Every single voter contact can make a difference. Please make some calls this weekend and through election day on Tuesday — sign up today.

Democratically Yours,

Clark Lee, CDP Political Director
California Democratic Party
