The Democratic Party’s biggest Super PAC, recently retooled as an early pro-Hillary Clinton effort, will sit out the midterm elections this year.
A spokesman with the group, Priorities USA Action, confirmed to BuzzFeed on Wednesday night that it would not be involved in House or Senate campaigns.
“House Majority PAC and Majority PAC are doing everything right and making a real difference. We fully support their efforts,” said the spokesman, Peter Kauffmann, referring to the main groups supporting Democratic congressional candidates.
Go look up how it was, precisely, that Hillary didn’t get nominated in 2008. Spoiler warning: the correct answer will be the one that makes heavy use of the term ‘super-delegates.’ I imagine that there’s a bunch of current Democratic legislators that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t mind not having to see, schmooze, and placate in 2016…
