Schwartz Out as Top DCCC Fundraiser

Allyson Schwartz 2012In another sign that Allyson Schwartz is all but certain to make a gubernatorial bid, the Congresswoman stepped down from her post as Finance Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

She was named to the position a mere two months ago.

The switch was reported in The Hill Wednesday and spotted by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The FC of the DCCC is responsible for helping to raise money for congressional incumbents and challengers around the country. It was an ideal spot for Schwartz who has consistently demonstrated strong fundraising skills and has been rising in the House Ds caucus.

The position also would have allowed Schwartz to expand her network of national donors had she wanted to run for U.S. Senate in 2016.

The National Journal last week explored the pros and cons of remaining as FC as well as a gubernatorial candidate, but suffice it to say Schwartz had little reason to leave the post unless she was certain of a Guv bid.

    Schwartz is nothing more than a Pelosi wantabe. Considering the economic crisis we are experiencing the Republicans need only produce this Socialist’s steady record of tax and spend votes and her passion for big government in order to easily defeat her.

    This woman should not be touted for her fund-raising skills; rather, she should be exposed for the contributors who own her. Start with the unions.

    I do like Schwartz but don’t you think he would be better challenging Toomey in 4 years for the Senate Seat. If she has the popularity to win as the Gov., then she should have the popularity to win as a Senator.

    Shwartz for Senate 2016!

    We’re now one step closer to four more years of Tom Corbett!
