I saw this article on Combest today. While I don’t harbor any delusions that our chances of taking this seat are any better than, say, 10%, does this have any predictive value for the Ds recruitment prospects versus the Rs on a state-wide basis? Does this indicate the level of interest/enthusiasm among grassroots Ds v. Rs?
I would contend that this is an indication of the relative strength of the Ds. With the proper breeze at our backs, and the right candidates recruited and in place, perhaps we can pick up a few seats otherwise thought to be untouchable.
I would be interested to know everyone else’s perspective — what are you seeing on the ground in your part of the state? Are we lining up good candidates for the State House seats? Are people excited about the 2008 election?
