The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the House’s campaign affiliate, on Friday announced it was adding Georgia State University Professor Carolyn Bourdeaux to its Red to Blue program, which provides fundraising and organizational support to what it sees as its most competitive recruits.
The DCCC said Bourdeaux landed a spot in the program by “surpassing aggressive goals for grassroots engagement, local support, campaign organization and fundraising.”
