Congressman Joe Crowley to Chair DCCC's

Washington, DC - Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), today announced that Congressman Joe Crowley (D-NY) would chair the DCCC's Business Council program, leading Democrats' outreach efforts with the business community.

“Business leaders were an important part of Democrats' victory in November and will be even more important this cycle in helping Democrats continuing our agenda to keep America competitive," Chairman Van Hollen said. "There is no better person than Congressman Crowley to tap into the energy around the country for Democrats' business agenda."

“I am proud to step up for a second term as chair of the DCCC Business Council. Last cycle, working together with Speaker Pelosi and Chair Emanuel, we successfully captured the majority and broke all fundraising goals," Rep. Crowley said. "This cycle is even more critical in ensuring that all of our targeted frontline Democrats get re-elected and that we expand our majority. I look forward to working with Chairman Van Hollen and building on the support in Washington, New York and nationally that the business community has shown in helping to elect Democrats to Congress.”
