    Guccifer 2.0, the hacker behind multiple US Democratic Party leaks, has revealed a new batch of documents from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The new leak includes documents on congressional races in several districts in Florida. The documents, titled "path to victory summary" and "campaign overview," contain various strategies for winning specific races. Strategies include particular targets for gaining support within various population groups, such as women, racial minorities and people of various ages, as well as points such as "leverage early vote to increase turnout in favorable demographic groups and geographic areas."

    "Here are the DCCC docs on Florida: reports, memos, briefings, dossiers, etc. You can have a look at who you are going to elect now. It may seem the congressional primaries are also becoming a farce," the hacker wrote on his website in a post containing a number of DCCC electoral campaign documents.

    The leak comes ahead of the US House of Representatives elections which are due to be held alongside the US presidential election on November 8.

    The hacker's previous leaks from the 2016 Democratic National Convention included personal dossiers and data on most congressional democrats, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and party donors.

    Guccifer 2.0 has followed the steps of Romanian hacker Marcel Lehel Lazar, who was the original Guccifer, in leaking Democratic Party documents. US intelligence agencies have accused Guccifer 2.0 of having links to Russian intelligence. The allegations have been denied both by Russia and the hacker.
