Super-PACs Line Up to Rescue Cash-Strapped Dems

'Maloney and his extreme views on issues such as cashless bail, taxes, spending, inflation and ethics are being exposed and this is making Maloney very unpopular with voters...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) As leftist panic over the upcoming red-wave midterm reaches its pitch, big money super-PACs are lining up to dump huge sums of cash into Democrat campaigns, Politico reported.

Specifically—and most recently—the Hudson PAC has lined up major funding to try to save Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair Sean Patrick Maloney, D-N.Y., from a potentially embarrassing loss.

The Hudson PAC quietly dumped $140,000 into TV ads for Maloney last week in an attempt to save his momentum in a district that Biden won by 10 points in 2020.

Maloney, a top ally for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was elected to his position in 2012. He is running for his sixth consecutive term this year.

Recent polling data has indicated that Maloney trails Lawler by a margin of 52% to 46%.

“Voters in New York’s 17th Congressional District remain frustrated with the current state of the country, specifically regarding inflation, the economy and crime,” said pollster Jim McLaughlin. “Maloney and his extreme views on issues such as cashless bail, taxes, spending, inflation and ethics are being exposed and this is making Maloney very unpopular with voters.”
