Rapid Response Program

Maryland Democratic Party Rapid Response Program

The Rapid Response Program is gearing up for the 2016 cycle and we are looking to reenlist the help of new and previous participants of the program.


Monitor, respond, and participate in the media coverage of Democrats running for office in Maryland and the policies they advocate:

Respond and Participate

  • Writing Letters to the Editor
  • Calling into Television & Radio programs
  • Phone Banking

  • Social Media


  • Newspapers/ Print Publications

  • Television (Cable news/ local news)

Regional Leadership Teams

Each County will have a “Regional Leader.” County Leaders are responsible for assisting the MDP communication’s staff in recruiting volunteers and executing rapid response objectives.

Maryland Democratic Party Communications Staff

The MDP Communications staff will serve as the source of all material released to program volunteers for the purpose of rapid response. The state party will work with state, federal, and county democratic elected officials to collect policy information, talking points, and other necessary data on news items that require a party response to be generated anywhere throughout our state. The state party will provide training opportunities for each segment of media engagement.
