Senior Democratic staffers raise big for Frontliners

Two senior House Democratic staffers brought in a ton of money for their most vulnerable members at a fundraiser Thursday night.

Tiffany Guarascio, Democratic staff director on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Brandon Casey, Democratic staff director for House Ways and Means, co-hosted the DCCC fundraiser at District Winery.

All told, the duo brought in nearly $1 million, according to attendees, which will go directly to Democrats’ 31 Frontliners.

It’s pretty rare for two staffers to pull off this kind of big-dollar fundraiser. But Casey and Guarascio are both longtime Hill aides who will be critical to running the House if Democrats take back the majority.

Their bosses — Ways and Means Ranking Member Richie Neal (D-Mass.) and Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) — are also big fundraisers for the party.

Frontline Democrats present last night included Reps. Greg Landsman (Ohio), Don Davis (N.C.), Hillary Scholten (Mich.), Steven Horsford (Nev.), Gabe Vasquez (N.M.), Dina Titus (Nev.), Val Hoyle (Ore.) and Pat Ryan (N.Y.).

Frontline Reps. Angie Craig (Minn.), Tom Suozzi (N.Y.), Mary Peltola (Alaska), Sharice Davids (Kan.), Chris Deluzio (Pa.), Vicente Gonzalez (Texas), Kim Schrier (Wash.) and Eric Sorensen (Ill.) also attended.
