A Political Action Committee created by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is spending $9 million in two tight House races in California, according to federal records examined by the Associated Press Thursday.

Both districts, which Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonWhite House accuses Biden of pushing ‘conspiracy theories’ with Trump election claim Biden courts younger voters — who have been a weakness Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton qualifies to run for county commissioner in Florida MORE won in 2016, were added to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Red to Blue program which “arms top-tier candidates with organizational and fundraising support to help them continue to run strong campaigns.” The Cook Political Report rates each race as a “toss up.”

Democrats need to flip 23 seats to gain control of the House. Eight of the races in the DCCC’s Red to Blue program are from California alone. 

Blomberg announced in June he would be support Democrats “in their efforts to win control of the House.” 

The investments only add to the record amount of money being spent this midterm election cycle. Outside groups and individual donors have come out in force to lift candidates of both parties both from out of state and within their own districts.
