House Democratic leaders are seeking contributions beyond dues commitments from their members (Frontline Democrats, such as U.S. Rep. Frank Mrvan (D) are exempt from the call). Leaders are now pushing for members to kick in as much as 10% of their cash on hand to raise more than $20 million for a final push for both Frontliners like Mrvan and other Ds being outspent. Overlooking any dues that U.S. Rep. André Carson (D) might still be short – as we detailed for you just a few weeks ago – the tithe from his treasury would be about $100,000, and would no doubt be rewarded should Democrats retain the majority. He already chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Counterintelligence, and Counterproliferation, but will move up in seniority on the full committee and could also perhaps be in line to chair a House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure subcommittee (potentially overseeing the aviation or rail industries) depending upon what happens in November.
