Emanuel Statement on New DCCC Chair Congressman Van Hollen

"Coming in the same class as Congressman Van Hollen, it was clear to me from his hard-fought primary victory and even tougher general election win that he had an acute political capacity rarely found in Washington. As head of the recruitment team, he helped create the field that became the Democratic majority. And, throughout this election, I sought his advice and counsel in every critical decision I had to make," said Congressman Rahm Emanuel. "There is no one better prepared to take the reins of the DCCC than Congressman Van Hollen. Both his personal electoral experience and his leadership of the Red to Blue and recruitment efforts have shown that he is a political strategist and thinker of the first order."
