At our annual Roosevelt Dinner last Saturday, we heard from incredible speakers, set a record for attendance, and raised twice as much as we ever have for a single event. We also unveiled a new logo for the San Diego County Democratic Party.
Congressional Democrats are back in the majority, and we hold four out of five seats in San Diego County for the first time, probably ever -- and we're committed to working on that fifth seat in 2020!

After the first Democratic Presidential Debate, the San Diego County Democratic Party conducted an online straw poll to take the pulse of local Democrats. With over 700 votes cast, the top five candidates were... Kamala Harris (31%), Elizabeth Warren (25%), Joe Biden (10%), Pete Buttigieg (10%), and Bernie Sanders (9%). All other candidates received votes in the low single digits. The second Democratic primary debate will air July 30 and 31 on CNN.
Half-way through the year, San Diego County Democrats continue to be well-positioned heading into the 2020 elections with a strong voter registration trends.

Out of the 18 cities throughout San Diego County, 14 now have majority or plurality registrations in favor of Democrats.
