After completing her bachelor’s degree in Government at Dartmouth College, Leah started her political career on Capitol Hill, followed by a position within the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”). In both 2008 and 2016, Leah served as the Chief Executive Officer of the Democratic National Convention Committee, making her the first person in Democratic Party history to hold the position twice. 

L. Joy and Rev. Dr. Daughtry demystify the Democratic party's national level committees, breaking down what the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee *DCCC), the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) do. They also discuss the upcoming elections (remember there is always an upcoming election) and the future possibilities for the Democratic Party.
