Nancy Pelosi's Still a Fundraising Phenom

But many fellow House Democrats are not, including some members of her leadership team.

Nancy Pelosi is still a fundraising force, but not every House Democrat is following her lead, according to a copy of the latest Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee report obtained by National Journal.

The House Democratic leader has paid half of the $800,000 in dues she owes the committee and raised more than $15 million of her $25 million goal. The House’s No. 2 Democrat, Steny Hoyer, has paid $600,000 of his $800,000 in dues and raised about $840,000 toward his fundraising goal of $2.5 million, according to the report, which was distributed to House offices Wednesday.

Reps. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, Xavier Becerra of California, Steve Israel of New York, Joe Kennedy of Massachusetts, and Henry Cuellar of Texas have all paid their dues, literally.

 

But the apple polishers are way outnumbered by the laggards. The members of leadership who have paid zero in dues include Reps. Diana DeGette of Colorado, Maxine Waters of California, Robert Brady of Pennsylvania, Collin Peterson of Minnesota, and Bennie Thompson of Mississippi. And despite having more than $2.7 million and $1.1 million in their respective campaign accounts, Reps. Lloyd Doggett of Texas and Gerald Connolly of Virginia have not paid their dues.

On the whole, though, “there has been a noticeable step up in member participation this cycle,” a Democratic campaign operative said.
