The Delaware Democratic Party
The Delaware Democratic Party is a member of the Democratic Party in the state of Delaware, headquartered in unincorporated New Castle County.
Erik Raser-Schramm is the state Chair. The Delaware Democratic Party is one of the two biggest parties in the state of Delaware (the other being the Republican Party) and has existed since the Jacksonian Democrats broke away from the Federalists in 1825. Besides their most prominent current political figure, former Vice President Joe Biden, the party occupies all federal seats for the state in Congress and currently has majority control over the state legislative and executive branch.
As the first state of the United States, Delaware was at the forefront of the creation in U.S. political parties. The origins of the Delaware Democratic Party can be traced back to the original anti-federalist party. While key difference divide this part from the Democratic Party today, key issues involving government involvement and ideologies such as Jeffersonian and Jacksonian can be linked to modern day ideals of the Delaware Democratic party. Yet, despite being one of the first states with true parties, the spiritual predecessor of the Democratic party struggled to support its agenda in the state. It wasn’t until the splitting of parties into federalists and Jacksonians that the Democratic party got its first true start. With only one bad loss in 1855 to the American Party, the Democratic Party dominated politics up until the end of Reconstruction in the United States. Most fascinating of all, was how the party maintained its popularity during the Civil War. Despite being a northern state, Delaware Democrats opposed the abolition of slavery. This Opposition has led to great changes in the Unifying of all Americans as it has given rise to equality, and unity. It is also worthy of note that President Obama was elected president in 2009 and he served two terms.
