Krueger Named New HDCC Chair

Harrisburg, PA, Thursday, January 17, 2019—Pennsylvania House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody (D-Allegheny) on Thursday announced the appointment of Representative Leanne Krueger (D-Delaware) to chair the House Democratic Campaign Committee, the official campaign arm of the Pennsylvania House Democratic Caucus. 

“Pennsylvania House Democrats saw historic gains in 2018 and are poised to fight for a majority in 2020,” said Dermody. “After running four campaigns in four years, Leanne Krueger has proven she knows what it takes to win and hold seats in a tough district. In addition to her own campaigns, she has been a great partner in recruiting great candidates across the Commonwealth. And, as one of the most prolific fundraisers in the Democratic Caucus, I am confident that Leanne will ensure that House Democrats will have the resources to compete—and win—next cycle.”

In addition to running four campaigns in four years (2014, 2015, 2016, 2018), Rep. Krueger has been a partner with Democratic leadership in recruiting and helping fund candidates across Pennsylvania. In 2018, a top fundraising cycle for PA House Dems, she served as HDCC’s Finance Co-Chair.

Rep. Krueger will be joined by a board composed of Representative Frankel (D–Allegheny) as Finance Chair, Representative Carroll (D-Luzerne) as Incumbent Protection Chair,  Representative Davis (D-Allegheny), and Representative Kim (D-Dauphin) and Representative Briggs (D-Montgomery) as Regional Recruitment Chairs.

“I want to thank Leader Dermody and my Democratic colleagues for their confidence in me and for providing me this awesome responsibility to move Pennsylvania forward,” said Krueger, 41, of Wallingford. “Democrats are within striking distance of a majority in the House and I look forward to engaging the entire Caucus in our recruitment and fundraising efforts ahead of the 2020 cycle. I am confident that as Pennsylvanians get to know their newly-elected Democratic members and Democratic candidates in the next election, they will see that we stand with the working families of this Commonwealth, not the powerful and connected. I am excited to get to work.”
