This week, The SuperPAC as Big as the Ritz.
From The Washington Post:
Priorities USA positions itself as center of gravity for the left in the Trump era.Sure. OK. The check is in the mail, I'll respect you in the morning and I just wanna build your overall infrastructure capacity baby!
The super PAC that poured nearly $200 million into trying to elect Hillary Clinton president is remaking itself as a permanent center of opposition to the impending Trump administration, with the long-term aim of helping the Democratic Party claw back voters it lost in the November election.
Priorities USA Action is merging with a nonprofit voting rights group called Every Citizen Counts to form an expanded organization with an ambitious agenda, according to veteran Democratic strategist Guy Cecil, who ran both organizations and will lead the merged group.
The group — which already has the backing of allies such as Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the American Federation of Teachers, the Human Rights Campaign and the Latino Victory Project — could serve as a major center of gravity on the left as Democrats seek to regain their footing in the Donald Trump era.
The myriad efforts could tax the resources and attention of liberal contributors, many of whom are dispirited by the election results and questioning whether their funds were well spent.
Still, some of Priorities USA’s major donors already are lining up behind the group. The organization has $10 million in commitments, and big contributors such as Chicago investor J.B. Pritzker have expressed interest in Cecil’s plans.
“We’re trying to build the overall capacity of the progressive infrastructure,” he said.
To do so, the organization is taking on a broad portfolio, assuming tasks that traditionally are in the purview of the national party...
I wish all the swells with the ginormous checkbooks the very best of luck with all of that. I also do not expect to see any Liberal lean & hungries out here in the cornfields to see pfennig of it, nor do I expect to see the Left's paltry stockpile of what it lacks most sorely -- reliable, wide-spread radio and television media platforms -- increased by a single kilowatt.
So while the Big People with Big Money fight on the mountaintops far away from here, I'll just be doing my thing, right here, with what I have, for as long as I can.
