LA Rep. Cárdenas Seeks to Chair Democratic Campaign Committee


Rep. Tony Cárdenas of Los Angeles announced his candidacy Friday for Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, a group that recruits candidates, raises money and organizes races to elect more party members to the U.S. House of Representatives.

Cárdenas sent a letter to House Democrats putting himself forward to replace outgoing Chair Sean Patrick Maloney of New York, who lost his re-election race to Republican Mike Lawler on Tuesday. Democrats did better overall than many analysts expected in Tuesday’s election, but are still expected to lose control of the House.

“I want to thank Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney for his leadership and his team for their work over the past two years, which helped us prevent a `red wave.’ In the coming weeks, we will make time to figure out how we can do better. But the work to win back the seats we lost and expand our Democratic Caucus begins today,” Cárdenas’ letter said.
