Democrats Forced to Abandon Key House Races

Democrats Forced to Abandon Key House Races

Democrats are in dire financial straights heading down the backstretch.

With less than a month to go, the Democrats have run into some very bad trouble that even Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros, stuffed ballot boxes, and the mainstream press can’t save them from.

They are short of money. This works in the Republican’s favor, as they seem to have plenty. Television advertising is crucial leading up to an election and the Democrats need to decide which races to continue to fund and which ones to give up on.

Whining to The Washington Post (DCCC) Executive Director Tim Persico said:

(There) “are places that I don’t know if we are going to be able to get to” in order to help Democrats. “We are just getting outspent everywhere, so it is just a question of how much can we withstand.”

That makes the  Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee that “lack the funds needed to fully contest all of their potentially winnable House races this cycle,” leading to “tough decisions about where to spend on television ads”.

Dem groups say:

“The relative shortfall in outside spending is likely to leave some Democratic incumbents in contested races at sharp advertising disadvantages while restricting the party’s ability to compete in open seats or to unseat Republican incumbents.”

The Post’s reporting outlines the Democrats’ money problems:

Democrats pointed to a TV ad spending advantage by Republican outside groups, which have the flexibility to move money around the House landscape strategically in the final weeks. That edge has become more alarming as a recent shift in the national mood has put more seats in contention for Democrats, who find themselves hamstrung by the Republican advantage in donors on the GOP side.

Another House Democratic strategist said the inability to fully fund key races could prove to be the difference between winning and losing control of Congress, or between keeping Republicans to a five-seat majority and a 15-seat majority. “I don’t think it is hyperbole to say at this point that money is going to make the difference,” said this person, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk more freely about strategy.

In what could be even worse news for the Democrats is the admission that they will no longer be able to afford to fight for seats that have long been controlled by Democrats with Republicans closing in on them.

So much for Nancy Pelosi’s prediction that not only would Democrats hold the House but that they will actually pick up seats. I don’t think she even believes that crock of horse hooey.

The Democrats are hoping to squeeze more money out of Democrats in safe seats so that they can put up more of a fight against the Republican wave. My guess is that they will not hand over their remaining campaign cash, but that they will kick in some bucks.

Warning that they’re out of money in the final stretch of the midterm cycle — and pointing to ad buy data showing that “some long-held Democratic seats are no longer being contested by national Democratic groups at comparable levels to Republican groups” — is something of a fundraising scheme itself. The hope is that Chicken Little sky-is-falling doom can have the effect of shaking more money out of Democrats across the country to bolster the party’s late-in-the-game efforts to stem losses and make the GOP spend more defending their incumbents. 

The Post’s reporting also points out that House Democrats were bad at predicting their party’s performance in the 2020 election, based on overconfidence that, if not remedied in the last two years, could prove problematic again

    Pardon my dumb question. If you make life very difficult for citizens, and businesses to function, how can you expect the people to give their ‘two’s & fews’ to the party that is the cause of the current financial crisis the country is in? Just sayin……

    “Great news. Now the patriots can relax, become complacent, and stop fighting for fair elections and traditional values” said every hopeful Marxist Democrat ever.

    More likely that this is a part of a propaganda campaign to encourage more donations.

    I doubt seriously that the Commicrats are short of money. With the billionaire Communist George Soros, many millionaire sports and Hollywood donors, and Communist China contributing, I can’t see where they would ever be short of funds to promote their Socialist/Communist agenda. It is time to vote all the Commie scum out of Congress. Vote Republican!

    Funny according to all the GOP fundraising emails I get they all say the GOP is being outspent by democrats. Maybe the democrats should use that largess they got funneled into share blue from BLM? Unless they spent it. I would also like to state that for all the democrat whining their party as more uncontested seats where no republican is running against them. Contrary to the writer I am sure the combined resources of Zuck, Google, Twitter employees not named Musk, the entire membership of the Biderbergs, Soros and his army of foundations, the political leadership of the Ukraine, Bill Gates, and anyone who makes more than a million in the media Hollywood can fully fund the DNC. The reson they wont is because they know there will not be an election due to some black swan event OR the fix is in using the proven hackable software of voting machines and the lack of security of mail in voting

      DIMMs are spending up to a billion (aggregate) in Senate races! I don’t think that is helping much, though!

    Audit the funds that were available!!! Might find this unscrupulous gang has no qualms thieving from each other. They do it to us taxpayers in every bill brought to the House of Representatives for a vote.
