COURAGE CAMPAIGN’s ‘Hall of Shame’ for Dems

THE BUZZ: COURAGE CAMPAIGN’S “HALL OF SHAME” STRATEGY — Amid ongoing tension between the Democratic Party’s liberal and more progressive wings, the Courage Campaign plans to spend money for the first time this year in legislative primaries.

— The liberal advocacy group plans to use its annual scorecard on state lawmakers — and a “hall of shame” for Democratic politicians out of step with its liberal agenda — as a basis for its primary involvement. The group told POLITICO it is making an initial commitment of $100,000 to play in California primaries.
