DGA Raises $15 Million In First-Half of 2013   Leave a comment

Impressive, if not overwhelming haul of dollars by the Democratic Governors Association in the first half of 2013

The Democratic Governors Association Chair Peter Shumlin announced Friday that the organization raised $15 million in the first six months of 2013, a record haul in an off-year.

The $15 million figure is 30 percent more than the committee raised in the first half of 2009, the last comparable time period. That year, the DGA raised $11.6 million from January through June.

“With these resources, the DGA is well-positioned to help take back statehouses that belong firmly in Democratic hands,” Vermont Gov. Shumlin said in a statement. “As we recruit strong candidates and build the infrastructure needed to win across the country, we will continue to communicate that in order to put an end to Tea Party-style governance in America, it’s critical we elect more Democratic governors.”(Politico)

…now, given the gubernatorial landscape for 2014, the question is whether the DGA can succeed. Looking at the map of governor’s races next year, it’ll be interesting to see what happens but given the vagaries of American politics, who knows what could happen between now and November 2014…

Pro President Obama Blog

To paraphrase President Obama's speech on 12/4/13 to the Center For American Progress: Our strength is grounded in our individuals, civic, religious and business leaders working and making things happen. But government can't stand on the sidelines; it can and should refocus our energies on building an economy that grows for everybody. I remain confident that the future still looks brighter than the past.
