The GOP has a similar organization, the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee. There are also Democratic and Republican campaign committees for the House.
For what it’s worth, the DSCC’s chairman this cycle is Sen. Michael Bennet from Colorado, who knows a thing or do about winning a tough election in a state that’s not deep blue. Maybe he feels a kinship with Ms. Judd, who’d be taking on a tough opponent in incumbent minority leader Mitch McConnell.
Judd has yet to set up any political committees of her own for fundraising or just plain exploratory action. But she’s also met recently with top state Dems in Louisville, Ky., presumably to test the waters and engage in a little prefundraising survey of potential wallets, according to another report in the Atlantic.
