“We’ve moved forward with early endorsements so Coachella Valley voters will have time to meet and know the candidates who will likely be on their ballots in the November 2024 election after the March 5th Primary,” said DOD President Marcie Maxwell. “We’ve approved Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia’s endorsement with the expectation that he will be part of a winning coordinated campaign strategy with our key early endorsed candidates — Congressman Dr. Raul Ruiz, CA-25; congressional candidate Will Rollins, CA-41; State Senate candidate Lisa Middleton, 19th; and State Assembly candidate Christy Holstege, 47th.”

There are many ways voters can get involved now, working toward the November 2024 election, according to Maxwell.  Democrats of the Desert offers opportunities to learn about issues and meet candidates, plus participate in elections and advocacy workshops, calls to action, attend informative monthly meetings, and volunteer on campaigns.

On Oct. 21st, DOD is hosting “Our Dream Team – Path to Progress.” It’s a special event with Congressman Ruiz and congressional candidate Rollins in an extended discussion about representing the Coachella Valley and beyond.
