Daniel Marans, a HuffPost reporter who covers the Democratic Party, on Thursday discussed his recent story on House Democrats who are asking for help to fend off progressive primary challengers.
Marans reported moderate Democratic House members Jimmy Gomez (Calif.) and Veronica Escobar (Texas) both requested help from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in fending off more-liberal challengers from within their own party.
Gomez and Escobar were part of a party-sponsored video call with donors in which five “frontline” lawmakers, or those who are in districts at risk of being flipped to Republican candidates, were being highlighted.
Someone is running against Vero? Right. I reckon Vero can keep her seat till her ambition takes it away from her.
She was just there to lend her rising star power.
