And before getting trounced, the party sent $450,000 to the DSCC who will reportedly use the money for the reelection of Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto:

Activist Jen Perelman said this means Dems “would rather lose to the GOP than win with progressives”:

And she point Florida on notice that they’re next:

Good luck with that.
