The annual campaign trip of the Democrats is coordinated by the College Democrats Activist Council and is held over the Election Day weekend.

The first campaign trip took place in 2004 and was the work of Elizabeth Brown and Seth Flaxman. The trip to Lorain County, Ohio, was bankrolled partially by Sherrod Brown and was enormously successful, though the rest of the state was less fortunate.

Subsequent trips included:

  • 2005: Virginia and the successful gubernatorial bid of Tim Kaine
  • 2006: Ohio, for Brown's successful senatorial race against incumbent Mike DeWine
  • 2007: Kentucky, for the successful gubernatorial bid of Steve Beshear
