IN FOR A PENNY UPDATE

Last month, Oakland Confidential noted that Dem donors were all over Democratic members of the House for not ponying up their dues to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), which works to elect Democrats to the House. At that time, none of the Michigan delegation was paid in full, and several had paid nothing for the year – but in an update, we can report that Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Birmingham) has paid her full $175,000 membership dues. In a posting by Punchbowl News, the DCCC Members Dues Report showed at the time that of leadership, Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) had increased her contribution to $180,000 from $130,000 – still off from her $450,000 dues goal. But retiring Rep. Brenda Lawrence (D-Southfield), with $962,130 cash on hand, had donated $10,000 to DCCC, three percent of her goal of $400,000; outgoing Rep. Andy Levin (D-Bloomfield Township) had given nada out of a $175,000 goal, despite having $1.1 million in the bank – and no campaign to run right now; and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (R-Detroit) had also given nothing towards her goal of $250,000, with over $1.15 million in the bank. “Frontline” members battling in the toughest races, which include Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-Lansing) and Rep. Dan Kildee (D-Flint), are exempt from donating – for now. If they win their races, we would assume they’ll need to pony up.
