The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Wednesday rolled out its next wave of top-tier recruits in the party’s uphill battle to regain the House majority in November.
The so-called “Red-to-Blue” candidates — who the party deems as the contenders in the most winnable races this fall — are concentrated in states where Democrats believe they won the edge in redistricting, such as California, Illinois and New York. The DCCC announced 13 new Red-to-Blue-candidates on Wednesday, bringing the total to 51.
“They are not about ideology,” DCCC Chairman Steve Israel said Wednesday as he unveiled the new roster. “They are about solving problems … they are committed to strengthening the middle class.”
