Michele Bachmann targeted by national Democrats
As a Red to Blue candidate, Clark will get help from the national party with fund-raising, communications, strategy and grass-roots organizing. Last election cycle, 27 of the 63 Red to Blue candidates beat out Republican incumbents.
So far this year there are 26 candidates on the Red to Blue list, and it's unlikely to grow to 2008 levels. "We've been so successful in the past few cycles at turning Congressional seats from Republican to Democratic that there just aren't as many races to chose from this time around," said Gabby Adler, a spokesman for the DCCC.
