Washington -- When he walks the halls of Congress, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes is likely welcomed by many fellow Democrats and avoided by others.
That’s because of his new job as the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s finance team.
Named to that post in February, Himes’ job requires him to raise millions from Democratic donors to help House Democrats keep their seats –- and hopefully someday regain the majority.
He must also be the DCCC’s enforcer, making sure all House Democrats pay their annual dues.
