DAPAC supports progressive Congressional challengers. That's our mission; that's our passion. We interview dozens of candidates from around the country and talk to them not only about what kind of race they are going to run, but what kind of policies they favor. We screen every candidate to see where they stand on the issues that matter most.

We only endorse progressive candidates. When you give to DAPAC you know that these are the kinds of men and women you are helping to elect to Congress.

All our candidates:

  • are 100% Pro-Choice.
  • support stronger GBLT rights.
  • support working family and union rights.
  • support honest and Democratic markets and businesses.
  • support publicly funded universal healthcare.
  • support strong environmental protection.
  • oppose the Patriot Act.
  • oppose the Iraq War.
  • oppose the Death Penalty.

DAPAC is working to rebuild the Democratic Party from the ground up - to support strong candidates who will give voice to the issues that matter most.

Candidate winners of 2012-2013


Martin Heinrich, NM
Martin has been a representative since 2008 and now is running for Senate. He is committed to expanding this country's energy independence with clean and renewable energy, protecting social security and Medicare, and to employing America. 


House of Representatives: 

Alan Grayson FL-08

Alan is  running in a newly redrawn District which favors Democrats.  He was defeated by a Tea Party wave in a much more conservative district.  He is an aggressive outspoken liberal candidate who favors economic policies to support the 99% and good paying jobs.


Michelle Lujan Grisham, NM-01

In her early law career she worked hard to protect and represent seniors' rights, so much so she was appointed Secretary of Aging and Long Term Services. She was also head of the New Mexico Department of Health where she helped to fight to make sure every child had access to primary health care.
