DCCC Boss Goes to Bat for Annette Taddeo

The Democratic leadership in Washington, D.C. doubled down on its support of former Miami Dade Democratic Chairwoman Annette Taddeo over the weekend as U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján, D-NM, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) went to bat for her. 

“As chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, one of my main focuses is finding top candidates to run for Congress,” Luján emailed supporters on Sunday. “Annette Taddeo is one of the very best Democratic candidates we have. Annette has a proven track record of fighting for our Democratic values in Florida and I know she will continue to do so in Washington.”

Luján insisted Taddeo “is in one of the toughest races in the entire country” as she runs against U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., claiming the “far right is revving up their attacks.”

Wadi Gaitan, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF), fired away on Monday morning. 

“It is fitting that the DCCC, who has a rich history of putting politics over people, would write in support of multimillionaire Annette Taddeo," Gaitan said. "Taddeo, who is on her fourth political attempt, is running in a district that she does not live in and continues to prove that she is focused on advancing her personal political ambitions and not the best interest of South Florida.”
