The Democratic establishment isn’t very good at hiding its tracks. Even though Chuck Schumer and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee publicly deny they’re backing any candidate in the North Carolina Senate primary, if you follow the money, it’s a completely different story.
A Federal Election Commission filing on Monday reveals that 2020 Senate Impact, which has brought in nearly $200,000 so far this year, will be disbursing some of those funds to the Senate campaigns of North Carolina State Senator Cal Cunningham and M.J. Hegar, an Air Force veteran running in Texas…
The FEC documents also reveal some recent links between that network and Senate Majority PAC, a high-dollar super PAC run by allies of Schumer, whose leadership PAC happens to be called Impact.
In other words: A super PAC run by Schumer’s cronies, and another named after Schumer’s own PAC with ties to the Senate Minority Leader, are working hand in hand to funnel cash directly to the campaign coffers of Cal Cunningham, even while Schumer and the DSCC say they are publicly neutral.
A previous story detailed how Schumer activated his New York donor network to give directly to Cunningham – making up more than a third of Cunningham’s total donations in the last quarter.
Erica Smith – the progressive primary candidate who supports Medicare for All, the Green New Deal, and gun control – previously called the DSCC’s primary rigging efforts “racist” as well as “shameful and embarrassing.”
Wonder what Erica Smith thinks about these new efforts by the Democratic establishment to funnel cash to Cal Cunningham under the table, while publicly denying they’re playing favorites in any way?
