Debbie Wasserman Schultz and two other House Dems are "raising tons of money, dishing the cash to key House colleagues and cementing their place in Nancy Pelosi’s inner circle," Politico reports -- as they jockey to lead the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2012.
Wasserman Schultz has already given about $300,000 this year alone to Democratic candidates nationwide. She's already in charge of helping Democrats defend their seats in 2010 and "is also one of nine chief deputy whips — a skill that will be critical in the upcoming health care vote. And she has cemented her reputation as a consistent Democratic presence on cable TV. She appeared side by side with Pelosi in Sunrise, Fla., on Monday to sell health care reform to seniors, a critical voting bloc in Florida."
