We have reached the time of year where the party committees have to prioritize, and the longer-shot challengers and competitors suddenly feel the rug pulled out from under them. Tough luck, John Foust. She’s not quite congresswoman-elect Barbara Comstock . . . but it’s a great indicator of momentum:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has canceled its television advertising in a competitive northern Virginia House district and will shift most of that money to help an incumbent in northern California, according to a Democrat who monitors media buys.
The sum of the DCCC’s cancellation in Virginia’s 10th District was $2.8 million, according to the source. Democrats were on the offensive in the open-seat race to replace retiring Rep. Frank R. Wolf, R-Va.
It is not often that National Review expressly encourages donations to a candidate, but we urge you to support Barbara Comstock. You can contribute to her campaign here. It will be one of your best investments of the 2014 midterms.
It now looks like a safer investment as well!
