United Rural Democrats was founded in September 2020 to provide Democrats in small towns and rural communities with the support they need to organize effectively. Strong candidates in traditionally "red" parts of our country had not been getting the resources they needed to compete.


United Rural Democrats (URD) is focused on rebuilding Democratic investment in rural political infrastructure. A lot of our neighbors are open to the ideas of the Democratic party, but are disengaged by classic party messaging. We seek to combat this, ending small-town isolation and building community trust. We continue to work with campaigns and candidates all across the nation in our fight to cut rural America in on the deal.


United Rural Democrats is dedicated to supporting candidates that represent our values as Democrats, and we will only endorse candidates who pledge to stand for LGBTQ+ rights, reproductive freedom, labor rights, and public education.


If you are a candidate for public office in the United States or work for such a campaign and would like to be considered for an endorsement, please send an email to with the subject line "Endorsement Request."
