6-22-2017 POLITICO’S Morning Score Info

MEMO MADNESS – “DCCC seeks to rally demoralized troops,” by Gabriel Debendetti: “In a nearly 1,600-word Wednesday morning memo to committee staff that was obtained by POLITICO, the New Mexico congressman shared polling conducted between late March and mid-June showing Democrats in position to make gains in a handful of competitive seats held by Republicans. … Explaining that in some cases the pollsters tested specific Democratic challengers against Republican incumbents, Lujan said “many incumbents – who won with double digits last cycle – would be in the race of their careers, including Reps. Martha McSally (D+5), Brian Mast (D+3), Kevin Yoder (D+2), and Rodney Frelinghuysen (D+3). … One of the polling graphics included in the memo shows an 18-point Democratic advantage in Florida’s 27th District – held by retiring Republican Ileana Ros-Lehtinen – an 11-point lead in California’s 21st – held by David Valadao – and 9-point leads in both California’s 10th (Jeff Denham) and 49th (Darrell Issa) districts.” Full story. Full memo.
