DCCC likely to play offense here
Two weeks ago I posed the question will the DCCC play offense here in the 13th in response to news that they plan on going on offense in 40 districts with their millions of dollars cash advantage. That answer appears to be yes!
via The Hill comes a little more detail;
"We have 40 seats at least — and growing — where we have good challengers in place, and that makes for a very big playing field this time around," Van Hollen said at a briefing with reporters.
Van Hollen's list includes some districts Democrats have not competed in for years, including Rep. John Shadegg's (R-Ariz.), Rep. Vito Fossella's (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Steven LaTourette's (R-Ohio).
Bold text my own edit. This is why we compete here a year and a half out. Certainly this has to be some of the worst news for Rep. Vito Fossella.
