From the Wall Street Journal blog, laying the groundwork to later cry “union money” as the Democrats keep momentum rolling on their backlash to Republican over-reaching:

A coalition of Democratic groups announced Thursday formation of “Foundation for the Future,” a new 527 political action group aimed at helping elect state legislators in 2008 and 2010, putting them in place before the 2012 redistricting effort that could revamp the boundaries of House seats.

The group plans to raise $17 million during the next six years to research demographics, analyze voting patterns and help Democrats win elections. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees labor union has pledged to donate $9 million.

The effort responds to a Supreme Court ruling upholding a Texas redistricting map orchestrated by former Majority Leader Tom DeLay that netted five Republican seats.
