The Democratic National Committee (DNC) announced on Tuesday it is launching a new campaign organizing program in nine states ahead of next year’s midterm elections. 

The Campaign Pipeline Project will place organizers on the ground in Arizona, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia and New Jersey in an effort to elect the party’s candidates up and down the ballot in the targeted states. 

“In order to win, next year and in the future, our party must invest in young and diverse talent,” DNC Chairman Jaime Harrison said in a statement to The Hill. “Through the Campaign Pipeline Project, the DNC will be able to identify, train, and embed young, diverse staff in communities across the country to ensure that Democrats are on the ground, and on the ground early.”

The DNC has a goal of hiring 80 percent of those who participate in its boot camp training programs, according to party officials. 

Officials say their goal is to have the organizers trained and embedded in state parties by September 1st.
