DNC settles up with the DCCC and the DSCC.

Democrats in Accord

After months of negotiating, the leaders of the Democratic National Committee and Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee have struck a deal on the national party's spending strategy in its quest to capture control of the Senate in November.

DNC Chairman Howard Dean has agreed to put what one Democratic aide said was roughly $5 million into Senate races. Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee chairman, welcomed the agreement, saying: "The DNC is helping us at a time we need it very much, and we appreciate Chairman Dean's efforts."

A few weeks ago, Dean struck a similar deal with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Rahm Emanuel (Ill.) to spend $12 million on voter-mobilization efforts this fall, with $2.4 million allotted to the most competitive House races.

The deals bring a measure of closure to a heated debate this year among Dean, Schumer and Emanuel over the party's spending strategy. Emanuel and Schumer have advocated spending resources on this year's races, when the national political climate favors substantial Democratic gains in both chambers. But Dean has said that the party's long-term health relies on spending money to develop party infrastructure across the country.

The DNC also intends to increase its contribution to the most competitive fall House campaigns by $2 million -- to a total of $4.4 million. "In this important election, as with every election, we can't take any vote for granted," said DNC spokeswoman Karen Finney.


And now we need to go and buy a Democracy Bond or make a donation so peace can be kept.

3. You know the party can organize sample ballots
and mail at a discount by working through the state parties...

It is such a boost to the canidates if the state party, subsidized by the national party, helps fund an absentee program, mails sample ballots and does a lot of GOTV stuff that individual candidates may not be able to afford...

5. Isnt Charles Schumer a member of the newly reformed PNAC?
If so, his racist and myopic views would not be a great match for the Democratic party.
