Campaign Workers

Unions and Associations

The Democrats, Republicans, Greens, and Libertarians are the members of four of the political parties in the United States that employ campaign workers. While the functions of campaign workers in each party are fairly similar, the organizations and philosophies of these four parties differ. The Democratic Party is the oldest political party in the United States and one of the oldest political parties in the world. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) oversees party activities. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) support candidates for election to their respective Houses of Congress. The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) coordinates the activities of the Democratic state governors. The College Democrats of America (CDA) and the Young Democrats of America (YDA) organize and train younger members of the party. The Republican Party, founded in 1854 by antislavery northerners, is today considered the more conservative of the two major political parties. It is organized along similar lines as the Democratic Party, with the Republican National Committee (RNC), the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC); the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC); and the Republican Governors Association (RGA). The Republican Party's affiliates for younger Republicans are Young Republicans, College Republicans, and Teenage Republicans. The Republican and Democratic parties also have state party affiliates in each state that train and employ campaign workers for statewide political campaigns.
