Bleeding Heartland: Braley named vice chair of DCCC
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Bruce Braley was elected to Congress in 2006 with the support of the
Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Red to Blue" program.
In 2008 he helped manage the DCCC's Red to Blue efforts. For the next
election cycle, he's been promoted again: "The DCCC today named the
second of its three Vice Chairs - Congressman Bruce Braley (D-IA) will
serve as Vice Chair for candidate services, responsible for the DCCC's
offensive efforts including recruitment, money, and training." ... Last
month, Van Hollen named Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida the DCCC
Vice Chair for incumbent retention. Given her refusal to endorse three
Democratic challengers to Republican incumbents in south Florida, it
was appropriate for Van Hollen to remove her from a leadership role in
the Red to Blue program.
