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.
