    Peskin is no longer on the DCCC (SF Democratic party central committee). The progressives took over the DCCC in 2008 and held it in 2010. Its endorsements seemed to make a difference for progressives in a couple of close supervisor races in 2008. I worked on one of those campaigns and I think the ability to give democratic party slate cards with progressive down ticket endorsements to Obama voters at the polls probably made the difference that year. In 2010 the DCCC endorsed candidates did very poorly. Now the DCCC is more in the 'moderate progresssive camp' endorsing progressive incumbents like Mar but staying out of the contentious D5 race.
