Given that huge advantage, this recent contribution to the republican candidate is nothing less than overkill:

Unless, you think they’re worried? Maybe by this:

Hoeman wants to face Dixon in state Senate race next November

…In his campaign kickoff, Hoeman said he’s better equipped than Dixon to deal with pressing issues like healthcare because he’s able to see the impact up close.

“I have consoled patients in my office who have broken down in tears because their Medicaid had been taken away. Without it, healthcare was simply not possible for them,” Hoeman said…

Everybody knows someone who has problems getting access to affordable health care. Maybe that rational political seed has been planted. We can hope.
