From KOMO News:
Washington Congresswoman Suzan DelBene has sharpened her arrows yet smiles consistently while she talks about her latest fight.
DelBene is now in charge of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and is tasked with one thing: winning back the House for her party.
Back in her 1st Congressional District this week, DelBene talked about her strategy with KOMO News and how she intends to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to win key seats. In the 2020 cycle, the DCCC spent $330 million, and you can expect spending to be similar in 2024.
“First, I’d say Democrats outperformed everyone’s expectations (in 2022). You heard stories of the red wave and that there was no chance that we could keep the majority and that Republicans were going to have an overwhelming majority, and that did not happen,” said DelBene in a room at Medina City Hall. “They’re 18 seats across the country right now that Republicans are in President Biden won in 2020. There’s a big opportunity for us to pick up seats that have been democratic seats. And those are a big focus for us going forward.”
