Washington (CNN) – The Democratic National Committee is kicking off its push to get voters to the polls in November's midterm elections.
The DNC has transferred its first $2 million as part of the national party committee's $50 million Vote 2010 plan, according to a Democratic party official. The DNC's next report with the Federal Election Commission will show that the committee moved $666,666 to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, $666,666 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, $333,333 to the Ohio Democratic Party and $333,333 to the Florida Democratic Party, according to the party official.
The DNC plans to dish out $20 million overall to the DSCC, DCCC and to the state parties, as the Democrats try to retain their majorities in the House, Senate, and the governorships, with $30 million in direct spending by the national party committee.
It's probably no accident that Florida and Ohio are the first two states to receive cash, as both have competitive state-wide battles for governor and senator.
"Our $50 million Vote 2010 plan is the DNC's largest and most sophisticated midterm election effort ever with the most important component for us...engaging folks who voted for the first time in 2008 and making a connection for them between their local candidates and President Obama," said the party official.
