Everything is on the line for Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi this November.
She desperately wants her party to keep control of Congress and further their leftist agenda in the final two years of President Joe Biden’s first term in the White House.
And that’s why Democrat voters are so confused by Pelosi’s latest move that appears to be an attempt to cut her losses.
Big stakes for Nancy Pelosi this November
Democrats currently have a 50/50 tie in the U.S. Senate – only controlling the majority thanks to the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris.
The blue brand’s lead in the House of Representatives isn’t much better.
In fact, the GOP can take control of the Lower Chamber by flipping just five seats in the Midterm elections this November.
House Democrats have been using large fundraising hauls to aggressively play defense in their most vulnerable districts.
But two of the biggest left-wing spenders are pulling money out of some of their incumbent-protection races – leaving the door open for Republican gains on election day.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democrat House Majority PAC are starting to be more selective with their funding choices.
Some political insiders believe this is a sign Democrats know they will lose the gavel in the House this election cycle and want to mitigate the damage to keep them in striking distance to regain control in 2024.
Know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em
Democrat House candidate Michelle Vallejo is one of the Democrats most feeling the sting of Hispanic voters fleeing the Democrat Party.
Vallejo is running against Republican Monica de la Cruz in a majority-Hispanic Rio Grande Valley district in Texas.
Internal polling must not be good for the Democrat as the DCCC isn’t sending anymore support to Vallejo, and the House Majority PAC is planning to cancel the scheduled ad reservations for her at the end of the month.
Moving to Arizona, Democrat Rep. Tom O’Halleran is complaining to donors that he needs the Party to come to his rescue soon or he will lose this November.
Rep. O’Halleran is running against Trump-endorsed Eli Crane.
The NRCC has spent over $1.7 million in the district – and the DCCC and House Majority PAC have yet to fight back.
And up in Wisconsin, Democrats may lose a seat in an open race due to lack of funding.
Democrat Brad Pfaff is looking to succeed retiring Democrat Rep. Ron Kind and is running against Republican Derrick Van Orden.
However, Pfaff has been left on his own by the DCCC.
Making matters worse for Pfaff, the House Majority PAC is again planning to cancel ad time reserves they scheduled in the contest.
There are also two California districts that at one-point Democrats targeted as potential pick up opportunities – that are now being ignored by the party as they focus on mitigating losses.
