Democrats Work to Shore Up Black Vote

"The DCCC has undertaken a new black voter outreach initiative -- which the committee says is the most expansive and expensive project in the history of the DCCC -- that has consisted of demographic focus groups, battleground polling, ad testing and renewed ground game in black neighborhoods," the Washington Post reports.

"In 15 of the top 25 House seats being targeted by the DCCC this cycle, African Americans make up at least 10 percent of the voting-age population. In close races that will likely be decided by just a few points, the DCCC believes boosting turnout among those black voters by just a few points could keep them be competitive in places they would otherwise lose this year."
