About Us



The NewDEAL is a national network of rising state and local elected leaders who are pro-growth progressives. Our mission is to bring together leaders focused on expanding opportunity and to help them develop and spread innovative ideas to spur economic growth that is broadly-earned and sustainable. We do this by connecting the NewDEAL Leaders with each other to exchange ideas, and connecting them with other pro-growth progressive political, policy, and private sector leaders.

The network includes our Honorary Chairs, former Delaware Governor Jack Markell and U.S. Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, as well as our Honorary Regional Chairs: Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, U.S. Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, U.S. Senator Chris Coons of Delaware, U.S. Senator Gary Peters of Michigan, U.S. Congresswoman Kathleen Rice of New York, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, former Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman, former Miami Mayor Manny Diaz, and former Houston Mayor Annise Parker.

We hope you’ll take a moment to nominate innovative leaders you’ve met and sign up to stay connected as we add more of their pro-growth progressive ideas to our site.
