DSCC Maxes Out for Eleven Candidates

Eleven Senate candidates have received the maximum donation from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. A review of the list of 11 is a good gauge of which races the committee views as most in need of financial reinforcements. Bloomberg has the rundown:

The DSCC, which oversees strategy for defending the Democrats' 53-47 Senate majority in the November elections, "maxed out" last month to Senators Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana, Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan. All face competitive re-election campaigns this year; Stabenow is running for a third six-year term and McCaskill, Tester and Brown are seeking their second.

Former Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska, Representative Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, former state Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and former U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona in Arizona also received the maximum contribution last month.


Senator Bill Nelson of Florida, who's seeking a third term, and Representatives Shelley Berkley of Nevada and Joe Donnelly of Indiana, who are seeking seats Republican incumbents are defending, got $43,100 last year.

Two notable absences from the list: Tammy Baldwin in Wisconsin and Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts, both of whom are in competitive races. Both have also raised a lot of money on their own.
