From Will Bingham’s article in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune:
Jack Pitney, a government professor at Claremont McKenna College, said he believed the inclusion of Dreier by the committee is “more about psychology than actual resources,” and is intended to give Warner a leg up in fundraising efforts.
“Democrats have a lot of money to spend, and they have the luxury of talking about seats they might not actually pick up,” Pitney said. “But as the election gets closer, the picture will get clearer.
“They may have to put a lot of their resources into defending their incumbents, particularly those who were first elected in 2006.”
