Democratic officials recognize Badey in the 7th Congressional District
Specifically, the DCCC has designated the 7th Congressional District race as an "emerging race."
"I am gratified that the strength of our campaign has now been formally recognized by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee," said Badey.
Badey said he wants to preserve Medicare, protect women's health care rights and rebuild the economy to protect working families.
"This acknowledgment is a great step for my campaign and it shows that we have strong grassroots support," Badey said. "This election will be about character and the conviction of a representative that believes in something more than just saying anything that will keep him in office."
The DCCC's Red to Blue program provides financial and strategic support to top Democratic campaigns in the U.S.
