Congressional Democrats are sounding ‘desperate’ in the final weeks of this midterm election cycle.

Potential House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who was recently in South Florida with Rep. Ted Deutch (D), put out a fundraising email titled “desperately” asking supporters to help Democrats counter a $21,750,000 Republicans received from some of their mega donors.

I just turned on the news. I can’t believe what I’m hearing.
Billionaire donors just wired Republicans $21,75O,OOO for the final stretch.
I had no idea this was coming.
 Mike, we are now being massively outspent with just 2O days to go.
I don’t want to alarm you, but we are incredibly short on time. We must hit our goal before the Final FEC Deadline at midnight if we want any shot of winning the House.
I will not stand for another two years of President Trump and a Republican Congress.
It’s critical that we get 1O,OOO gifts before midnight to keep pace with the Republicans, turn out every Democratic voter, and win the House once and for all.
Can I count on your $1 before midnight?

We all get it. Raise as much as possible, then spend it all to win. That’s Politics 101.

Democrats don’t have much to worry about in the House, especially in South Florida.

The aforementioned Rep. Ted Deutch should easily win his race, as will Reps. Alcee Hastings, Frederica Wilson, and Al Lawson.

Rep. Wasserman Schultz has a tough challenge ahead of her, as does Donna Shalala, who some thought would walk away with retiring Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen’s congressional seat.

Regardless of some GOP-leaning toss-up seats, Democrats are expected to win the House.
