DCCC NEWS RELEASE

DCCC Announces Second Round of Red to Blue Candidates
The DCCC today announced the next round of candidates that have qualified for the competitive Red to Blue Program. These candidates earned a spot in the program by surpassing demanding fundraising goals and demonstrating to voters that they will work to create jobs and put the interests of their constituents ahead of the special interests in Washington.

“These candidates being named to our Red to Blue Program are running strong campaigns and demonstrating their commitment to being independent leaders who will make job creation back home their top priority,” said Chris Van Hollen, Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “The Red to Blue Program will give these strong candidates the financial and structural edge they need to win in November and become strong advocates in Congress for middle class families back in their districts.”

Chairman Van Hollen joined DCCC Vice Chair Bruce Braley (IA) and Red to Blue co-chairs Allyson Schwartz (PA), Patrick Murphy (PA), and Donna Edwards (MD) to announce the next 11 candidates who qualified for the Red to Blue Program:
Chad Causey (AR-01)
Tarryl Clark (MN-06)
Joyce Elliott (AR-02)
Colleen Hanabusa (HI-01)
Denny Heck (WA-03)
Julie Lassa (WI-07)
Gary McDowell (MI-01)
Mike Oliverio (WV-01)
Tommy Sowers (MO-08)
Manan Trivedi (PA-06)
Trent Van Haaften (IN-08)
The addition of these new candidates now brings the total number of DCCC Red to Blue candidates this cycle to 26.
The Red to Blue program highlights top Democratic campaigns across the country, and offers them financial, communications, grassroots, and strategic support. The program will introduce Democratic supporters to new, competitive candidates in order to help expand the fundraising base for these campaigns. The very successful fundraising effort helped raise more than $26 million for Red to Blue candidates last cycle.
