Somehow, I don’t think that this fits the existing media narrative of a Democratic party ready to use its compelling financial advantage to stop the GOP in its tracks.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has canceled its television advertising in a competitive northern Virginia House district and will shift most of that money to help an incumbent in northern California, according to a Democrat who monitors media buys.
The sum of the DCCC’s cancellation in Virginia’s 10th District was $2.8 million, according to the source. Democrats were on the offensive in the open-seat race to replace retiring Rep. Frank R. Wolf, R-Va.
They’ll be moving the money to try to keep freshman Congressman Ami Bera in office… and they’re still being outspent: three outside groups are pumping $3 million into this particular race, and the Democrats aren’t happy about it. They’re also not too happy with their own donors; something about how those donors’ “focus appears centered far more on saving the Senate majority.” Which is even funnier, really, given the way the Senate looks these days.
PS: Guess ‘California is forever lost to the GOP’ is another one of those existing media narratives, huh?
