Founded in 1997, the New Democrat Coalition is a group of 61 moderate, pro-growth lawmakers committed to seeking pragmatic solutions that will foster a new era of American prosperity at home and keep our families secure from threats around the world.
Formed by Members of the Coalition, the NewDemPAC helps re-elect House NewDems and elect new, like-minded leaders who can help develop a positive policy agenda and message.
Thanks to our supporters, the NewDemPAC is celebrating its twelfth year in 2017.
“I am proud to lead the NewDemPAC and support common sense NewDem Members in Congress who work to unite our country and leaders towards policies that will unleash growth, keep our economy competitive, and make our nation more secure. As Chairman of the NewDemPAC, I will not only have the backs of my NewDem colleagues, but will also champion any aspiring leaders who want to join us in Congress as we reject partisan gridlock and build an economy that leaves no American behind. I hope you will support and work with us as we drive this message in Washington and across the country – with your help, we can grow our membership and strengthen this important effort.”

Earlier this year, the NewDemPAC kicked off our 2018 cycle candidate program with our NewDemPAC Candidate Watch List. In 2017, we are identifying and supporting a select group of Democratic House challengers, who share our growth and innovation-oriented approach to addressing our nation’s challenges.
This early engagement will allow us to get to know rising leaders before making formal NewDemPAC endorsements in 2018. We look forward to getting to know candidates across the country who are dedicated to seeking pragmatic solutions to the opportunities and challenges we face as a nation.
BRAD ASHFORD (NE-02)
As a lifelong Nebraskan, Brad Ashford has built a career on serving Omaha in the state legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives during the 114th Congress. Brad was a NewDem Member during his time in Congress, and his term was highlighted by his ability to find solutions through public-private partnerships and consensus-building instead of partisan politics.
Chrissy Houlahan (PA-06)
Chrissy has an impressive background, ranging from her 16 years as an Air Force engineer to her role as chief operating officer of two Southeastern Pennsylvania businesses. With Chrissy’s real world experience and history of service, she will bring a unique skillset to Congress that aligns with the NewDems’ priorities of growing our economy, increasing opportunity, and pursuing new governing approaches.

We believe in...
The world isn’t waiting for America’s next move – it’s racing to catch up and pass us. That’s why, at a time when countries like China and Brazil are doubling down on research and development, we support policies that will strengthen our comparative advantage in tech and digital innovation – while fostering new breakthroughs in everything from biotechnology to high-speed broadband.
We believe in smart, sensible regulatory policies that make it easier for Americans with ideas to start new businesses, and we do not believe that Democrats should defend old regulations that fail to protect consumers and heap layer after layer of red tape on business owners. We believe in a tax code that everyday Americans can understand – not one that punishes small business owners for trying to make it in America by distorting economic decisions and putting the country at a disadvantage in the race for global prosperity.
A stable job, the ability to own a home, the ability to start a business, the ability to save a few dollars for retirement, the ability to afford health care and send children to college – these are the dreams that Americans work hard to fulfill.
Government needs to help, not hinder, Americans as they pursue these goals.
THE MIDDLE CLASS
Industrial-era policies won’t work in an office economy – that’s why we support policies that will equip Americans with the skills and resources they will need to adapt and thrive in an economy filled with fierce competition from all corners of the globe.
We believe in fiscally responsible and sustainable policies that put America’s future first.
