DCCC ready to step up for Dan McCready against Pittenger

This might get pretty dang interesting:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is naming 11 candidates Wednesday in the first round of its Red to Blue program, which highlights strong Democratic recruits. The list of 11 candidates, obtained first by Roll Call, includes recruits running in 10 competitive Republican-held seats and in an open seat Democrats are hoping to keep blue.

Being named to Red to Blue opens doors for candidates who can tout their inclusion on the list to donors. Candidates also benefit from guidance and staff resources from the DCCC, which has been in contact with all Democratic House candidates who have been willing to collaborate and communicate with the committee this year. The DCCC evaluates candidates’ fundraising, grass-roots engagement, local support, ties to the community and campaign infrastructure when deciding who makes the cut for the program.

Of all the Dem Congressional candidates who have been popping up over the last couple of months, Dan has emerged as (by far) the best fundraiser, approaching 3/4 of a million already. He's also a veteran and a renewable energy supplier, which would have me supporting him even if the DCCC wasn't involved. It's still a tough race to win, but if anybody could do it, it would be Dan.

Don't stand too close to Christian Cano...

His head my be just about to explode. While I might endorse or lean towards a certain Democrat in primaries, I genuinely try to avoid attacking other Dem candidates. But Christian has been showing his ass even more that he has in the past (that's saying a lot, frankly). Like this:

How (in the name of all that's holy) can you talk about diversity in one breath, and then call your opponent a "Nancy Boy" in the next? Defies reason and logic.
