Once Again, Mike Coffman a Top Democratic Target

Rep. Mike Coffman (R), Sen. Morgan Carroll (D).
Rep. Mike Coffman (R), Sen. Morgan Carroll (D).

A press release from Morgan Carroll’s campaign announced her not-surprising-but-still-noteworthy selection for help as part of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s coveted Red to Blue campaign:

“Morgan Carroll is a third generation Coloradan, a fighter, and a proven advocate for hardworking families,” said DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Lujan. “From lowering healthcare costs, to supporting small businesses, to securing affordable housing for Service members and their families, Morgan takes on the tough fights and delivers. We’re confident in the campaign she has built and look forward to her leadership in Congress on building an economy that works for everyone and keeping Americans safe.”

“This is a truly grassroots campaign and I’m humbled by the widespread support that we’ve received,” said Morgan Carroll. “I am running to ensure that hardworking families have the freedom to succeed, find good paying jobs, have access to affordable child care, feel secure about their retirement savings and find relief from overwhelming college debt.”

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.

Politico’s Lauren French has more on the DCCC’s Red to Blue program for this year:

It includes districts represented by some of the most vulnerable House GOP lawmakers, including Reps. Daniel Webster of Florida, Bruce Poliquin of Maine and Mia Love of Utah. Democrats are hoping to elect former Orlando police chief Val Demings, Maine politician Emily Cain and attorney Doug Owens in those seats, respectively…

“House Democrats are on offense and will pick up seats in 2016, and these effective, hardworking and diverse candidates are the foundation of our success this year,” said DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján, a New Mexico Democrat…

Being added to the Red to Blue program can be a financial boon to candidates in tight races. National donors traditionally use to the list to decide how to direct funding to lesser known candidates. It also helps solidify which seats Democrats think they’ll have the best chance of capturing during elections, establishing an early benchmark for the cycle. [Pols emphasis]

The DCCC rates the Colorado CD-6 race at #2 on their list of their top pickup opportunities, just behind California’s CD-24 race to replace an outgoing Democratic representative in a competitive district. It’s not the first time a challenger to Rep. Mike Coffman has made the Red to Blue list, but for a range of reasons this year is widely expected to be the toughest fight of Coffman’s long political career.

In short, this race is on the radar every year, but especially this year.
