New Democrat Coalition Chair
Rep. Ron Kind (WI-03)
Founded in 1997, the New Democrat Coalition is a key group of Democratic legislators dedicated to maintaining America's status as the world's strongest, most successful nation. Over the eighteen-year history of the Coalition, the group has grown in influence and size, currently covering roughly one-fourth of the House Democratic Caucus.
The New Democrat Coalition is the pro-growth, fiscally-responsible wing of the Democratic Party. We believe in policies that lead to American success.
The New Democrat Coalition is a tech-savvy group of legislators who are tapped into the new economy. We understand that the technological changes in the private sector demand new approaches in government, and we're ensuring that the voices of our tech and business communities are heard in Washington.
The New Democrat Coalition's members are the policy entrepreneurs of the Democratic Party. We share the core values that all Democrats hold, but we seek new and innovative ways to bring those values to life.
The New Democrat Coalition believes in ideas over ideology. We are a solutions-oriented coalition that seeks to bridge the gap between left and right by challenging old and outmoded partisan approaches to governing.
The New Democrat Coalition stands for the millions of Americans who feel unrepresented in today's broken political process. We believe that the moderate majority of Americans are tired of the constant campaigning and partisan sniping in Washington, and we're firmly committed to tackling the greatest challenges America faces today.
