Our State Democratic Executive Committee — known as the SDEC (txdem.co/SDEC) — carries on the activities of the party in communities across Texas and conducts party business in committees. The SDEC is composed of leaders from Texas’ 31 senate districts elected at every State Convention and caucus representatives elected by their caucuses, as well as the Party Officers (txdem.co/Officers) who are elected at Gubernatorial Year State Conventions or appointed by the State Chair.
Our Democratic National Committee Members — DNC Members — from Texas are representatives to the DNC and are elected at Presidential Year State Conventions or nationally via the DNC by DNC caucuses/rules or DNC Chair appointment. The State Party Chair, Gilberto Hinojosa, and State Vice-Chair, Dr. Carla Brailey, are also automatic DNC Members who are elected at Gubernatorial Year State Conventions. Hinojosa is also appointed by DNC Chair Jaime Harrison as a National At-Large Appointee DNC Member on the DNC Executive Committee. One of the DNC Vice-Chairs is also from Texas, U.S. Representative Filemon Vela, District 34.
