About Us

As one of the largest Democratic caucuses in the House of Representatives, the New Democrat Coalition is made up of nearly 100 forward-thinking Democrats who are committed to pro-economic growth, pro-innovation, and fiscally responsible policies. New Democrats are a solutions oriented coalition seeking to bridge the gap between left and right by challenging outmoded partisan approaches to governing. New Democrats believe the challenges ahead are too great for Members of Congress to refuse to cooperate purely out of partisanship. 

This Congress, the NDC is led by a 10 Member Leadership Team:

  • Rep. Annie Kuster (NH-02) Chair
  • Rep. Sharice Davids (KS-03) Vice Chair for Member Services 
  • Rep. Derek Kilmer (WA-06)  Vice Chair for Policy  
  • Rep. Brad Schneider (IL-10) Vice Chair for Communications   
  • Rep. Salud Carbajal (CA-24) Vice Chair for Outreach  
  • Rep. Marc Veasey (TX-33) Leadership Member  
  • Rep. Lori Trahan (MA-03) Leadership Member
  • Rep. Susie Lee (NV-03) Whip 
  • Rep. Nikki Budzinski (IL-13) Freshman Leadership Representative    
  • Rep. Suzan DelBene (WA-01) Chair Emeritus
