After a dif­fi­cult elec­tion for House Demo­crats, a pair of ous­ted mem­bers spoke up for DCCC Chair Steve Is­rael (D-NY 02). 

“[E]verything we asked for we got, and then some,” said Rep. Tim Bish­op (D-NY 01).

Rep. Steven Horsford (D-NV 04), whose loss came as a late sur­prise, said na­tion­al Demo­crats did all they could. “Once the out­side money star­ted, it just didn’t stop,” he said. “We were able to ba­sic­ally counter with $500K with­in a mat­ter of days — and that couldn’t have been done without the lead­er­ship of the DCCC.” (The Hill)

BLAME GAME. The DCCC “showed up in [New Jer­sey’s] CD3 and pro­ceeded to make a mess of [Bur­l­ing­ton County Free­hold­er Aimee] Bel­gard’s (D) cam­paign,” said Politick­erNJ. “The ads. The press re­la­tions. The bubble-wrap­ping of the can­did­ate. All of it showed cook­ie cut­ter designs on a dif­fi­cult Third Dis­trict where — giv­en the his­tory — there was no room for er­ror.” (Politick­erNJ)
