Word is that a contingent of Democrats from South Dakota made a pilgrimage to Minneapolis to the Democrat National Committee meeting taking place this week.
Aside from the meeting itself, the “Why” is pretty obvious, as the SDDP desperately needs the pipeline of cash from the national committee to buoy them up… or else they’re not likely to stay afloat. So, state Democrats have to attend to do some big ring (or lower) kissing.
…. State Democrats need more serious cash to keep the lights on. And it’s obvious they rely on their national party to do so:
According to the August 20 report, over $7500 was dropped into SDDP coffers by the National party in July to keep them afloat. And the party credited them for sharing the voter file.
The word long ago when former ED/Chair Ben Nesselhuf left, was that he knew that the DNC money train wasn’t going to last forever, so he got while the getting was good. But, despite the SDDP maintaining a phenomenal record of losses, surprisingly, the national cash is still there.
But is it good policy? Should the national party continue to keep the state Democrat party afloat? What’s your opinion?
