The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is the official national Democratic campaign committee charged with electing Democrats to the U. S. House of Representatives. The DCCC recruits Democratic candidates and supports Democratic campaigns – both challengers and Democratic incumbent Members – with a variety of services including field operations, fundraising support, communications assistance, research support and management consulting. In addition, the DCCC’s Independent Expenditure supports these campaigns with television, radio and other voter contact efforts. The DCCC is supported by the contributions of individuals and organizations, along with Democratic Members, from throughout the country. We look for talented and hard-working campaign professionals who are committed to electing more Democrats and taking back the House majority.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is seeking experienced, strategic communicators to be Regional Press Secretaries for the 2014 cycle. The regional press secretary is responsible for developing relationships with media in targeted congressional districts.
The regional press secretary spends a significant amount of time working with individual candidates and campaigns to develop and implement aggressive media strategies, story pitches, writing press releases and talking points, and interview preparation.
Required skills are excellent communications skills, campaign experience and multiple years of on the record experience.
