Welcome to the Rancho Bernardo Democratic Club website
Our club provides an opportunity for citizens to connect with one another, learn about political issues and Democratic values, and help elect Democrats to public office. We meet monthly to hear speakers on issues that affect our community, socialize, and plan activities to support Democratic Candidates.

Next Meeting: Monday, February 3rd, 2020 (Welcome Back Party!)
The RB Dem Club will not be meeting in December, and our January meeting will instead be a Welcome Back Party rather than a full meeting. Details on the party are as follows:
DATE: Monday, February 3rd, 2020
LOCATION: Bernardo Heights Community Center
More details on the party shall be forthcoming over the next few weeks.
Note that we were hoping to have the party on our regular January meeting day, but that day was not available, and this was the next best option.
Have a great holiday everyone, and see you all next year!

Our November 25 meeting
Judy Ki gave the club a presentation on the San Diego County Democratic Party Central Committee; what it is, what they do, and why it is important. Hugh Rothman, who is currently a member of the Central Committee, also added some thoughts on what it is like to a be a member of the committee.
Jana Johnson give the club a presentation on the upcoming 2020 senate races occurring throughout the nation, including which ones will be key for Democrats flipping the Senate in 2020.
And finally, Jason Bercovitch and Terry Norwood led us in a rousing game of “Who Said It”; quotes from presidential candidates still running. Congratulations Team Apple-Crumb for knowing the most obscure quotes from our candidates!
