"We need a new strategy. We have never, to my knowledge, had a well-resourced campaign for this seat that prioritized energizing and growing our core base instead of trying to flip someone else’s base. We’re building it, and not only can we win this way, but we’re building a campaign that will help transform the political landscape here in the process."
In 2018, the DCCC put its hopes in a conservative Democrat, Amy McGrath, who lost to incumbent Andy Barr, after announcing she was looking forward to working with Trump. This year's Democratic candidate is high school chemistry teacher Chris Preece who is more likely to talk about working with Bernie than with Trump.
This is one of the bluest districts in the country with a Republican Congressmember. It's time to change that!
Yesterday was Howie's Birthday, and he's been telling people who wanted to send him gifts to consider contributing to Blue America candidates instead. Even $5 or $10 is a help in grassroots campaigns like Christine's and Jason's.
It's a good one from the DCCC.
Howie spoke with a movement candidate who looked over the list of the current crop of DCCC favorites. He said, "I think we can persuade some of them to vote progressive at least some of the time."
Joe Biden just allocated $6 million (at least!) on advertising in the Lone Star State. It’s the most potent sign to date that all of those polls showing that the battle for Texas’ electoral votes is neck-and-neck must be taken seriously. Let's Take Back Texas!
"If we take our talking points and marching orders from corporate special interests, we’ll constrain change to 'impossible aspiration' and never accomplish the progress this country desperately needs." -- Beth Doglio for #WA10
What's a Democrat? Is it someone who supports a set of shared progressive values or is it someone willing to support-- with votes and cash-- Team Blue, Inc?
Pelosi is raising tons of cash for #AZ-01's Blue Dog Incumbent in an attempt to stymie progressive Eva Putzova, just like she tried against Jamaal Bowman last month. Howie thinks it's important to remind people not just what Eva stands for-- Medicare-for-All, a Green New Deal, and lots more-- but also reveal what the incumbent Pelosi is supporting stands for.
