  •  I agree with everything you say here, in fact (6+ / 0-)

    I was only pointing out that we don't usually cover school board races at Daily Kos Elections, not that they're not important. To the contrary, this was a great example of why they are. I'd just probably go to an early grave if I tried to follow these all over the country!

      I get that!

      Only if the Right is walking out a coordinated plan to capture school boards all over the country, maybe someone whould be covering them. I appreciate that you're one person and there are hundreds (thousands?) of school board races. And I'm not, unfortunately, able to volunteer to follow them all either. I don't know the answer.

      •  It's the kind of thing (1+ / 0-)

        You need a left-wing version of Art Pope for, frankly.

          maybe two people splitting the job, for the cost of about one modest full-time working wage plus expenses.

          And heaven knows there are a lot of smart unemployed people who would be delighted to get the task.

          I just don't know who would or could pay for it -- or if anyone with the money has thought of it.

          There might also be some enthusiast(s) willing to start it for free, only I don't happen to know that type of person,  not having  too many personal friends who are into politics.
