The Senate New Democrat Coalition (SNDC) was founded in Spring 2000 by Senators Evan Bayh (IN), Bob Graham (FL), Mary Landrieu (LA), Joseph I. Lieberman (CT) and Blanche Lincoln "to provide a unified voice in the U.S. Senate for progressive ideas, mainstream values, and innovative, market-based policy solutions."

By December 1, 2001, the SNDC became "the strongest and most unified Democratic group in the Senate. With long-time leaders like John Breaux (LA), and a strong class of freshman from the class of 2000 -- including Jean Carnahan (MO), Tom Carper (DE), Ben Nelson (NE), Bill Nelson (FL) and Debbie Stabenow (MI)," SNDC's ranks expanded to 20 members.
