Pelosi-affiliated PAC moves big money away from CA district

The Pelosi-connected House Majority PAC has announced that it will move millions of dollars out of California’s 27th district.

The move seems to show Democrats giving up on winning a seat that voted strongly for President Joe Biden in 2020.

The details

“Garcia is running against Democrat Christy Smith, whom he defeated once in the 2019 special election to fill disgraced former Rep. Katie Hill’s (D-CA) seat and again in the 2020 election,” Breitbart News reported.

“Garcia ended the third campaign fundraising quarter with more than double the $3 million Smith raised, according to recent Federal Election Commission filings,” it added.

The strategy

“House Democrats’ largest super PAC sent a message to donors on Friday, 18 days before the midterm election: We are still in the fight — if you open your wallets,” Politico reported.

“To back up the claim, House Majority PAC included in its memo toplines from October polling showing Democratic candidates ahead of GOP opponents — but by 5 percentage points or less — in nine open or GOP-held battleground districts,” it added.

The plan is to shift the PAC’s money toward candidates in districts the party believes it still has a shot to win.

Republicans see growing evidence that conservatives will take back the House, potentially by a large margin.

The past two years under Democrats have led to painful inflation, a border crisis, and many other concerns impacting those headed to the ballot box.

The PAC may plan to change its strategy, but it certainly won’t be an automatic win, especially with so many races already including many early voters.
