After successfully making it to the General Election in Washington's 1st Congressional District, Suzan DelBene announced today that she earned a spot on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's (DCCC) highly competitive Red-to-Blue program. DelBene was named to the Red-to-Blue program because she has surpassed demanding fundraising, organizing, and infrastructure goals.
"Last night, the voters of the 1st Congressional District said loud and clear they want a member of congress who will deliver results, not rhetoric. They want someone who will stand up for the middle class, get our economy back on track, protect Social Security and Medicare," said DelBene. "Being named to the Red-to-Blue program is another show of the growing support and momentum we've received as we move onto the general election."
"There is strong grassroots energy behind Suzan DelBene's campaign because she knows how to create jobs. Her successful career in both the public and private sector gives her the tools and background to be a thoughtful leader who can stand up to a dysfunctional Congress and bring results for Washington's middle class," said DCCC Chairman Steve Israel.
The DCCC's 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.
