White House to Reid and Pelosi: Expect no money from ‘Obama for America’

in Uncategorized by

Jim Messina and David Plouffe told Reid and Pelosi in back-to-back meetings on Capitol Hill on Thursday … that there would be no cash transfers to the DCCC and DSCC from OFA or the DNC … before Election Day … Obama has offered to do one money event each for the DCCC and DSCC. … Obama will … send out an email and fundraising letter solicitations for both committees. Nor … have Obama or Biden committed to do events for individual Democratic lawmakers. … And no fundraisers have been scheduled yet … with Cabinet officials … Obama could still raise $700 million to $800 million, Democrats predict … ‘Our top priority and focus is to secure the electoral votes necessary to reelect the president,’ Messina said in a statement to POLITICO. ‘There’s no doubt that Democratic campaigns face a challenging new political landscape with special interests giving unlimited amounts to super PACs.”
