Heartland Dems are looking to take power away from the coastal elites in their party after a devastating 2016 and a string of special election losses…
Frustrated with the leadership in their party, some heartland Democrats are looking to decouple themselves from Nancy Pelosi and the other coastal elites calling the shots.
The People’s House Project, a super PAC founded by former MSNBC host Krystal Ball, aims to recruit candidates and raise money in a structure separate from national Democrats.
The reason? Democrats have veered too far to the left and chosen a message that’s toxic in much of the United States.
One potential problem identified by some political analysts is the ability of Republicans to run attack ads tying Democrats to the party’s coastal and culturally liberal wing.
Ball is joined by three congressmen, Reps. Dan Kildee (D-MI), John Yarmuth (D-KY), and Tim Ryan (D-OH), who unsuccessfully challenged Pelosi for House Minority Leader last year.
Whether the group is successful or not, Ball and her new group are not shy about rebuking Democrats failed strategies. “We’ve been running the wrong candidates in the wrong places in the wrong way,” she said. “We want to play with another way to run Democratic campaigns.”
