Politico: Dems Could Retake House
Could it happen? Politico's Mike Allen reports that Nancy Pelosi is a fundraising machine who could help lead Democrat's into a retaking of the house!
Since losing the speaker’s gavel in January, Pelosi has engaged in a frantic effort to win back the House. As minority leader, she has made hundreds of fundraising appearances over that period — 331 events by last count — helping the DCCC to take a lead in its money battle with House Republicans, a remarkable feat for the minority party.
Her haul so far this cycle: more than $26 million for the DCCC, Democratic incumbents and challengers. This compares with the $18 million-plus raised by Pelosi during the “off years” of 2007 and 2009.
