DNC Fundraises for Ohio Dem After He Indicates Support for Pelosi

Democrat Danny O’Connor, running in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District special election, may have sold out his opposition to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in return for access to Democratic National Committee (DNC) fundraising.

According to The Columbus Dispatch, O’Connor repeatedly insisted that he would not back Pelosi for Democratic leader if elected to Congress. But in a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” the Democrat said he would back “whoever the Democrat Party put forward.”

It was a strange reversal for a Democrat running in a strongly Republican district, but a Wednesday email from the DNC may reveal his motivations.

A fundraising email, sent from the national Democratic Party and written by O’Connor, asks recipients to donate money to the Democrat’s campaign to win the 12th Congressional District.

 

A disclaimer at the bottom confirms that the email came from the DNC.

It’s curious that the day after O’Connor reversed his anti-Pelosi stance the Democratic Party blasted out a fundraising push to help put the Democrat over the top.
