"Democrat Party" is meant to be insulting by those who use it. Cite:

Democrat Party is an epithet for the Democratic Party in the United States, used in a disparaging fashion by the party's opponents. While historical and occasional current usage includes non-hostile appearances, the term has grown in its negative use since the 1940s, in particular by members of the Republican Party—in party platforms, partisan speeches, and press releases—as well as by conservative commentators.[1]
However, HD's usage of lower case "d" and shortening of Democratic Party to dems seems fine to me. It doesn't seem disparaging in any context nor does it seem to be the intent here.
