DCCC Announces Frontline Members: McNerney...

DCCC Announces Frontline Members

"The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today announced the Members of DCCC Frontline program for the 2008 cycle. As a result of the DCCC’s historic success last November, 29 Members have qualified for the Frontline Program this cycle. The Frontline Program will be chaired by Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL). Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL), the former Chairman of the DCCC, will continue working with Frontline Members this cycle.

Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said: “In November, the American people sent a clear message for change. The Frontline Members are already hard at work for the American people by restoring honesty and openness in government, re-establishing fiscal responsibility, strengthening our national security, and giving everyone a shot at the American Dream. The Frontline Program will give our Members an added boost so they can continue focusing on the issues their constituents care most about.”

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chair of the Frontline Program, said: "Our Frontline Members inspired the confidence of their constituents during their campaigns for Congress. They made the commitment to move our country in a new direction. They are our Majority Makers. The Frontline program will build on their strengths, providing them with the money, message and strategy they need to successfully position themselves for reelection in 2008."

The Frontline Program

The Frontline Program is a partnership between the DCCC and Members which lays the ground work for the 2008 cycle by supporting and expanding their fundraising and outreach operations. This competitive program requires members to meet aggressive fundraising goals, accelerate volunteer and recruitment efforts, and increase on-line networking.

Last cycle, the Frontline Program’s early success helped make half of the most competitive Democratic seats safe by the fall of 2006, allowing the DCCC to expand its offensive opportunities. Democrats have an outstanding record of defending tough seats with battle tested incumbents and have successfully protected 95 percent of their incumbents since 2002. In 2006, Democrats did not lose a single seat.
