The DSCC's Muddled Endorsement Strategy

If Sen. Patty Murray, chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, has her way, Rep. Shelley Berkley (R) will be the party's candidate for Nevada Senate against Republican Rep. Dean Heller (L).(Hand out, left, Liz Lynch, Right)

Meanwhile, in Connecticut, where two Democrats have emerged in a primary contest, Murray mentioned just one. "(Rep.) Chris Murphy, in Connecticut -- great candidate, working hard. Really enthusiastic about this, and we are excited about him," Murray said. But Murray made no mention of former Connecticut Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz (D), who is also running for the seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.). "I'd just like to know why the DSCC is endorsing Shelley Berkley but apparently doesn't think enough of Martin Heinrich or Chris Murphy to get behind them," asked National Republican Senatorial Committee spokesperson Brian Walsh. It's even more of a concern for candidates like Bysiewicz, Georgiou and potential challengers to Heinrich, who didn't get any mentions at all. It raises the question: What do Democratic candidates need to do in order to receive the DSCC's blessing?
