VIDEO: DCCC Highlights Problem-Solvers on ‘Jumpstart’
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is highlighting the strengths of “Jumpstart” candidates in a new video today showcasing the first round members of the program. Jumpstart candidates get early financial, operational and strategic support – providing an early boost to competitive candidates in competitive districts around the country. Jumpstart was announced last week.
“Americans put a premium on sending problem solvers to this broken Republican Congress, and these Jumpstart candidates all know how to put results for the middle class ahead of partisan ideology – and they’ll all be just the antidote the American people want,” said Emily Bittner of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “From a former CIA analyst to a well-respected judge, Jumpstart candidates have a record of putting this country first and solving problems. We’re excited for this class of strong recruits to hit the ground running and talk with voters about how they’ll tackle the country’s problems, instead of voting in lockstep with a dysfunctional and out-of-touch Republican Congress.”
