Don’t get me wrong: it’s early days yet. But this line from a Politico article detailing the solidifying trainwreck which is the Democrats’ attempt to take back the House:
The DCCC is working 24/7 recruiting excellent candidates and helping them and our members build top-notch campaigns.
…has pretty much no backup evidence for it. At all. The so-called “Drive to 25” initiative that the Democrats were supposed to be pushing heavily has sort of… dissipated. Not to be mean-spirited about this, but if the DCCC has any people running for all those open/Republican held seats, then the committee has done an excellent job at hiding its light under a bushel. An examination of the site reveals, well, no recruits at all.
Again, it’s early days yet. And obviously the NRCC shouldn’t get complaisant. Still, this was a fairly uncritical acceptance of Democratic agitprop on Politico’s part: tsk, tsk.
