WASHINGTON–Three Illinois freshmen House Democrats–Brad Schneider, Cheri Bustos and Bill Enyart– are among the 26 members considered the most vulnerable in 2014 by the House Democratic political operation and will be bolstered with fund-raising and other assistance.

Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee said Tuesday the three from Illinois will be part of the DCCC “Frontline” program.

From the DCCC: “The Frontline Program is a partnership between the DCCC and Members to lay the groundwork for the 2014 cycle by supporting and expanding their fundraising and outreach operations. Frontline Members must sign a memorandum of understanding that requires Members to meet aggressive fundraising goals, accelerate volunteer and recruitment efforts, and increase their online networking.

“Frontline membership will change as Members’ political circumstances shift as a result of redistricting, their opponent or other factors.”
