This is not the only place this is happening.
A progressive, grass roots spawned, local Congressional candidate in Minnesota was swatted aside by the DCCC who used their BIG MONEY resources to back their Beltway Anointed candidate.

The DCCC should be using their resources to help local candidates win races.
The DCCC should NOT be injecting their "Corporate Preferred" candidates into OUR local races.
The DCCC should NOT be using their BIG MONEY resources to "snuff out" the campaigns of local "grass roots" progressives!

From the DLC's OWN Website:
"The New Democrats apparently have begun this long march. The DLC has made training of a new generation of New Democrat leaders one of its primary objectives, continuing its efforts to work with and influence up-and-coming state and local officials. The New Democrat Network has grown quickly, increasing its ability to fund New Democrat candidates for federal office, including those running in primary contests."

By their OWN admission:
*The DLC function is to change the Democratic Party to a more Corporate Owner Friendly Political Party.

*The DLCs function is to reduce the voice of LABOR and the middle class, and INCREASE the power of Corp

"At a time when the public thinks big business has too much influence in Washington, the DLC's mission is to increase the influence of business in the Democratic Party. Or as Simon Rosenberg, head of the DLC's corporate-funded political action committee, the New Democrat Network, put it, "We're trying to raise money to help them lessen their reliance on traditional interest groups in the Democratic Party."

The DLC (DCCC) is an enemy to the voice of the Middle Class, and an enemy to the voice of grass roots activism.

All Politics is LOCAL????
Not anymore!
