DCCC Starts Cutting Loose Struggling Candidates

Wednesday, October 13, 2010 at 8:52 am

Yesterday came the news that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has begun practicing some tough love, canceling all remaining ad reservations in eight districts in order to save money for more competitive ones.

Six of the districts — including those held by Reps. Suzanne Kosmas (D-Fla.), Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Pa.), and Steve Driehaus (D-Ohio) — are widely viewed as seats that Democrats are now resigned to lose. Two others — the district held by Rep. Joseph Cao (R-La.) and the open seat in Delaware — are seats the Democrats are now confident they will pick up.

There are numerous other reasons why the DCCC shifts money from district to district, but, in general, it’s hardly a confidence booster if your struggling campaign gets cut off by Washington. The DCCC also cut off spending in Indiana’s open 8th district race, indicating that the Midwest, in particular, has been a challenging atmosphere for Democratic representatives to hold their ground.

In all cases, this is what happens when you don't represent the people you were hired to represent. I just can't believe the DCCC was so stupid to even spend any money in those districts. Especially in Dahlkempr's district! She totally ignored her district all along.

Don't buy too many clothes when discounted season comes Be attracted by the lower price, many women buy a pile of clothes in the discounted season,no matter if they really needs them.but many of the clothes will be layed in your wardrobe forever.In fact, this is because women don't really know what they need. women should think of their needs at the beginning of the season,list them on the paper,buy some cheaper one according to your economic conditions,when the discounted season comes,buy the classic style which can't out of fashion in some years,for example,a Arc'teryx orChristian Louboutin overcoat, a Christian Louboutin Sale or (5) dress,a pair of Jimmy Choo or (3) shoes, moncler or manolo blahnik trousers, buy one you need,don't be confused by the lower price on the clothes you don't really need.
