Applauding Historic Democratic Victories While Recognizing We're Just Getting Started

 

Resolution 13-04.1

 

WHEREAS, for the last two election cycles, Democrats in California, have managed to buck the Republican Red Tide that swept the nation in 2010 and scored magnificent wins in 2012 including picking up six Congressional seats in swing districts and capturing a 2/3 majority in the State Legislature; and

WHEREAS, California Democrats in 2012 also helped to beat back a full frontal assault on our labor allies in the form of Proposition 32 and helped to pass Governor Jerry Brown's Proposition 30 to invest in education and local public safety; and

WHEREAS, in 2011, after sweeping all statewide offices the previous year, our Party committed to pressing its advantage with programs to increase Latino voter registration in inland areas and boost vote-by-mail performance in Democratic strongholds, recognizing the hard work we put in 2011 contributed to and set the table for the historic victories of 2012.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party will not let up and will continue to work at 100% capacity in order to deny Republicans any chance of an electoral resurgence that would prove disastrous for our state. And while those "red corners" of our state continue to shrink it will be up to us to make sure they shrink at a faster pace so that all Californians have a fair shot.

THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, the California Democratic Party proclaims that despite holding every statewide elected office, a larger share of Congressional Districts than ever before, and a 2/3 majority in the State Legislature, we're just getting started!
