  • IL-Sen. 2010: Dem. chief says Kirk "moderate" (hahaha)

    11/09/2009 9:59:58 AM PST · by rabscuttle385 · 4 replies · 382+ views
    During two heated Democratic challenges, U.S. Rep. Mark Kirk of Highland Park was targeted by millions of dollars in TV ads painting him as a far right Republican in his north suburban district. Much of the time, it was the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee paying for and writing those ads. Kirk spent millions of dollars himself on ads to cultivate a moderate, independent brand in the 10th District. Now it seems the DCCC agrees with him. DCCC Chair Chris Van Hollen said during a C-SPAN interview Sunday that Kirk is a "moderate," contradicting his own organizations efforts to paint him...

    Despite claiming victory with getting 80 advertisers to dump Glenn Beck's show, the left clearly still views him as a big threat. Now Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) have entered the fray--sending out a mass email to sign a new petition to "Denounce Glenn Beck!".But the site is NOT CENSORED. So go there now and post your message IN SUPPORT OF GLENN BECK. Let's overwhelm their petition with Pro-Glenn messages.

    Mr. Carville, I happen to be one of those so-called birther's. By the way, where IS Mr. Obama's Long form Birth Certificate? And since we're on the subject, how about his Kindergarden records, high school records, college records (financial aid forms and transcripts), and any other record indicating his nationality at the time? Is there something in those records Mr. Obama does not want the people of America to see? Perhaps the good Mr. Obama is not a Natural Born Citizen of the US. Could that be the reason? And how were the activities of honest American citizens at the...

But there is a big difference beneath the surface: : Kos and DCCC immediately organized fundraising against Wilson. Wilson's $ is based on his own appeal and spontaneous contributors.

    Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann is outspoken, conservative, media-friendly — and for many in the Democratic Party, a new public enemy No. 1. Now that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is out of office, there are few Republican officials in the country Democrats would rather unseat in 2010 than Bachmann, a two-term congresswoman with a habit of pushing the buttons of liberals on everything from ACORN to global warming to even whether President Barack Obama is, as she once asked, "anti-American."

    According to a leaked memo, DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) plans to target 29 House Republicans from districts won by Barack Obama last November. Democrats privately say "they expect to lose a handful of seats to the GOP in next year's midterms and the memo acknowledges that the average midterm loss for a ruling party in a midterm is 30," reports Politico. "Nonetheless, he paints a picture of an unusually unpredictable cycle and thinks Dems could do much better than average if President Obama's popularity stays sky-high and the party targets vulnerable Rs."

    To feed their insatiable appetite for cash, the two parties’ House campaign committees are turning to their own members to fill their coffers. And as the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has far outpaced its GOP rival in fundraising, so too have Democratic members given far more to the effort than their Republican counterparts. In total, Democrats have transferred $4.87 million from their campaign accounts to the DCCC, with 19 members forking over more than $100,000. By comparison, Republican members of Congress have given the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) just $477,000, with no member topping the six-figure mark. Both...

    Dear Past Your Eyes, They just don't get it. Even after unprecedented efforts by President Obama to reach across the aisle, every House Republican voted "no" on the Obama economic recovery plan. Once again, Republicans have placed partisanship before millions of Americans struggling to make ends meet during these tough times. And, at their own retreat last week, Republicans actually cheered when they watched a video of their shameful vote. At this defining moment, we cannot back down. That's why the DCCC has launched the Putting Families First grassroots campaign – with hard-hitting radio ads targeting 28 obstructionist Republicans. Hold...

    Every time politicians attack Rush Limbaugh, his power and influence on the American political landscape increases. Yet those who wish to silence him continue to gift him with their attacks. It's as if nobody remembers what Rush accomplished for charitable purposes in response to Harry Reid's letter.

From the moment it started it was certainly charged. The debate was their one and only meeting on the campaign trail, and it was peppered with attacks and wise cracks. Even with the spirited debate, there is still a question as to which direction the district will fall. It is Tom Delay's old seat, and he gave up under a cloud of legal problems and ethical questions. After Delay resigned, election laws kept Republicans off...

Pelosi’s stunning claim to talk show host Charlie Rose — that resources are the only obstacle holding the party back in the fall elections — is surprising given that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has raised $120 million, or nearly $30 million more than the House Republican fundraising committee. “I have many more races I...

But, you and I can make sure Rove's new gig as the mischief-making maven of the GOP attack group Freedom's Watch is a total bust. Midnight tonight is your last chance to give before the June 30th FEC deadline- the...

    WASHINGTON, June 19 (UPI) -- Dozens of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee members have failed to pay their full dues to the U.S. political group, U.S. House Democratic leaders say. U.S. House of Representatives Democratic leaders say that such lapses in membership payments to the committee have totaled millions of dollars, the Politico, a Washington publication, said Thursday. The absent or incomplete membership payments by some committee officials have prompted talk of sanctions against delinquent Democratic lawmakers, the Politico said. U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., is among those supporting sanctions, suggesting that offending committee members should be banned from congressional delegation...

    Democrats are trying to chase from the political playing field a new conservative group expected to spend tens of millions of dollars this year attacking liberal candidates. Using accusations of links to gambling and "forced abortions," the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is striving to make the group, Freedom's Watch, too toxic for Republicans to stomach. "House Republicans and Republican candidates need to decide whether they can afford to partner with Freedom's Watch, a group that embodies the Republicans' culture of corruption by consistently breaking the law and is bankrolled by money that is inconsistent with their values," said Jennifer...

    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is the campaign arm for U.S. House Democrats, and one of their top priorities is seeing that Andre Carson is elected in the upcoming special election. They got him a Washington, DC, campaign team; a fancy new web site; and some large DC money. But their latest trick may have gone too far. Last week, a YouTube video surfaced online, essentially a scary attack adagainst Republican Jon Elrod, even containing the "paid for by DCCC" style disclaimer at the end. It was prominently featured on the DCCC's YouTube Channel (View this photo). The problem...

    Nearly two dozen House incumbents were outraised by their opponents and another dozen candidates established themselves as early frontrunners for newly open seats late last week as fourth quarter financial reports were due. Among the members on the short end of the fundraising battle in October, November and December were Republican Reps. Don Young (R-Alaska), Sam Graves (R-Mo.) and Dave Reichert (R-Wash.), as well as five vulnerable Democratic freshmen. The Democratic freshmen overall continued to raise strong amounts of money, with 20 of them cracking $1 million raised for the year, and all of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s (DCCC)...

    Attention wealthy people interested in politics: the Republican party wants you. As the New York Times noted today, the party that wants people to pull themselves with their own bootstraps expects the same of people running for Congress. It has little choice since The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has raised $56 million with $29.2 million at its disposal compared with the $40.7 million raised by the National Republican Congressional Committee, which as a cash balance of $2.5 million, the paper said. While having self-funded candidates seems like a dream come true for the GOP, there is a downside. People who...

    With 2008 fast approaching, the DCCC is urgently mobilizing our Rapid Responders to be our eyes and ears on the campaign trail.

The next time a Republican has a 'Macaca Moment,' will you be there to capture it? The power to hold Republicans accountable for their lies, distortions, and attacks belongs to you. Keep an eye on your local newspaper and your Member of Congress' web site to see...

    Report Reveals New Details About Hsu FundraisingUPDATED: 1:24 pm PDT October 16, 2007 WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A newly-released campaign-finance report filed by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is shedding light on Norman Hsu's political network. The disgraced democratic fundraiser faces fraud charges in California and New York. Senator Clinton has refunded more than $800,000 in campaign contributions delivered by Hsu. Clinton's latest report shows the money came from 249 of Hsu's associates. Most of them are Californians, but New York investors were also major participants in Hsu's financial operations. Some of those listed say they only contributed because they felt pressured...

    Dear "Past Your Eyes", TIME IS RUNNING OUT! As my last act in the White House, I asked Dick Cheney if he could help me break into the DCCC and send you this email. You see I've been watching you and other Democratic activists and let me say I'm a bit concerned. Over the past eight months Democrats in the House have made life for my Republican friends and me difficult -- issuing subpoena after subpoena. This has got to stop. Democrats have only been able to take these actions because people like you have backing them up. Well, the...

    The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) reported raising $2.6 million in August for its efforts to coordinate the party’s 2008 national campaign for Senate seats. In doing so, the DSCC continued to outperform its partisan counterpart, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), according to monthly reports filed late last week with the Federal Election Commission. There was some consolation for the GOP side, as the gap between the two committees was smaller than it has been in most of the months since the Democrats claimed control of the Senate in January. The Republicans’ Senate campaign unit raised $2.4 million in...
