CDP Announces Campaign Leadership Team

Los Angeles - California Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman today announced the leadership of the CDP's campaign operations for the November 2018 General Election, with Arianna Jimenez as the CDP Coordinated Campaign Program Director and Robert Dempsey as the CDP Congressional Campaign Program Director.

"California is the most important battleground for control of the House of Representatives and we are defining the progressive agenda. The California Democratic Party has put together our boldest, most sophisticated campaign plan in our history to run the tables against House Republicans, reclaim our supermajority in the State Legislature, and go for our third consecutive clean sweep of statewide contests. We are extraordinarily fortunate to have Arianna Jimenez and Robert Dempsey leading these efforts. Their wealth of experience and savvy will ensure we maximize our ability to defeat Republicans across the state and win a major victory for our progressive values," said Chair Bauman.

Arianna Jimenez most recently served as Political Director for Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West (SEIU-UHW), with nearly two decades of experience running major electoral campaigns for unions throughout California. As CDP Coordinated Campaign Director, Arianna oversees CDP campaign efforts for state candidates and field operations.

Robert Dempsey has two decades of experience nationally, including serving as Executive Director for the Democratic Parties of Virginia, North Carolina, and Vermont; State Director for several state operations on Sen. Bernie Sanders presidential campaign; and managed battleground Congressional races in California. In his role as CDP Congressional Campaign Director, Robert oversees CDP efforts to take back the House.

With strong prospects for victory in nearly two dozen U.S. House, California State Senate and Assembly seats, as well as nine statewide contests, the California Democratic Party is implementing its most comprehensive and expansive campaign plan in CDP history, with a particular emphasis on engaging rural, Latino, millennial and API voters, who will be crucial to securing a decisive victory for Democrats.
