Democrats woo donors for big redistricting fight

August 01, 2016

Democratic leaders and senior operatives brought together 50 top donors here Thursday afternoon to prepare for the launch of a new 527 group committed to a six-year redistricting fight. The new outfit will be a clearinghouse for raising and directing money, operatives tell POLITICO, but also organize priorities for a wide coalition of Democratic and Democratic-aligned groups across the country, down to directing in which states to try to get redistricting initiatives on the ballot in and even identifying pivotal state senate and assembly races to make national focuses.
