DNC doles out $2.5 million to boost campaign committees

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) transferred $2.5 million to state and national party committees, the latest installment in its $50 million election-year effort.

The DNC sent $833,333 each to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), the party’s Senate and House campaign committees, respectively. 

The DNC also gave $100,000 to the Maryland state party, $400,000 to the Florida Democratic Party, and $333,333 to the Pennsylvania party. The donations to the state parties are meant to support gubernatorial candidates in each state.

The money move comes after the DNC spread $2 million to state and federal committees, bringing their dole to a total of $4.5 million for the cycle. The donation is part of the national committee’s “Vote 2010” plan, in which the DNC plans to spend $50 million in donations to committees and on direct electioneering. 

To date, the DCCC has received $1.5 million, the DSCC has received $1.5 million, and various governor’s races have received a total of $1.5 million in support.
