Hosts Sought for Democratic Organizers for Various Campaigns

As Pennsylvania starts gearing up for the general election, the Pennsylvania Democratic Coordinated Campaign will be bringing new organizers to Erie and the surrounding counties. These organizers will be the ones that help Democrats up and down the ballot win in November.
