    she won 56-44 when candidates in similar districts (eg Gerry Connolly) barely hung on.

    •  Weak opponent (1+ / 0-)

      She ironically didn't get a serious opponent in 2010.  Nearly every other Dem did, especially in the burbs, but this seat is just D enough to avert serious challengers, in its current form.

      I can't imagine she could win a primary against Casey or Nutter, though I'm not certain either will run.  I can't honestly say I know anything memorable about her.  Maybe she is like Ted Strickland, who I didn't know anything about but who turned out to be decent and a good campaigner.

      •  Well (1+ / 0-)

        Keith Fimian wasn't a great candidate either - well-funded, sure, but too far to the right for his district. And Ann Marie Buerkle? Total Some Dude.
