The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is in deep do-do, as former President George H.W. Bush might put it. “The DCCC is nearly $20 million in debt, the electoral map may be even more daunting in 2012 after redistricting, and fundraising even tougher as the party competes for money during a presidential election cycle,” Politico reports
Yet new DCCC chairman Rep. Steve Israel, D-N.Y., still maintains that “the House will be in play” next year, the news service reports. Good luck.
“The DCCC has slightly more than $3 million cash on hand, and it now will have to raise funds to pay off its huge debt with Democrats in the minority. That presents a significant disadvantage compared with the past four years when Democrats held a fundraising edge,” Politico explains.
