Democratic National Committee Announces Six Primary Debates
WASHINGTON – Today, Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced details for the DNC’s six presidential primary debates. This debate schedule reflects the Democratic Party’s diversity and values and will best position Democrats to win the White House next November.
“We are thrilled to announce the schedule and locations for our Democratic primary debates,” said DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “These six debates will not only give caucus goers and primary voters ample opportunity to hear from our candidates about their vision for our country’s future, they will highlight the clear contrast between the values of the Democratic Party which is focused on strengthening the middle class versus Republicans who want to pursue out of touch and out of date policies.”

Thank you to all our fellow Democrats who attended the 2015 Fathoms of Fun parade and marched with us. We had a great time at one of our favorite summer events!
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rhododendron Festival Association of Port Townsend, WA who tragically lost their float to a fire during the parade. Thankfully no one was injured, but they are now without a parade float for the rest of the 2015 parade season. If you’d like to help their organization please click here.
