Emanuel trims his Frontline
Emanuel trims his Frontline: "Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chairman Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.) has cropped the number of “Frontline” Democrats from last year’s 19 to nine, implementing revised criteria to determine which incumbents are truly vulnerable and deserving of member-to-member donations."
"Emanuel’s new formula places a greater emphasis on the generic Democratic percentage, instead of the incumbent’s numbers, and therefore punishes lawmakers who underperform in their districts."
