Democrats roll out $90 million super PAC aimed at swing states

POLITICO reports that Democratic super PAC For Our Future "is launching its organizing efforts earlier than ever in seven swing states with a new campaign director and its largest budget to date: $80 million to $90 million." The PAC, which historically has been funded by labor unions and billionaire Tom Steyer, "plans to build a network of 4,000 paid staff and an army of volunteers in Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, states where it operated in 2018 and 2017."

The nation’s largest super PAC devoted to grassroots Democratic turnout is launching its organizing efforts earlier than ever in seven swing states with a new campaign director and its largest budget to date: $80 million to $90 million.

For Our Future announced Friday that it’s hiring former President Barack Obama’s onetime Florida campaign chair, Ashley Walker, to coordinate its swing-state operations with the goal of identifying and turning out Democratic-leaning 2020 voters, namely people of color and so-called “sporadic voters” who don’t frequently cast ballots.

The committee, which was started in 2016 and historically has been funded by labor unions and billionaire climate change activist Tom Steyer, plans to build a network of 4,000 paid staff and an army of volunteers in Florida, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, states where it operated in 2018 and 2017.
