Frustrated with the leadership in their party, some heartland Democrats are looking to decouple themselves from Nancy Pelosi and the other coastal elites calling the shots.
The People’s House Project, a super PAC founded by former MSNBC host Krystal Ball, aims to recruit candidates and raise money in a structure separate from national Democrats.
The reason? Democrats have veered too far to the left and chosen a message that’s toxic in much of the United States.
I wouldn’t put too much faith in Krystal Ball. (Yes this is seriously her name. She’s from my home state – or at least has run for office here.) She once said that the pigs in Orwell’s Animal Farm were “capitalists.”
