  •  I'd regard it a tossup but for fundraising (1+ / 0-)

    The partisan breakdown is fine for us, your 500K vs. 200K comparison isn't an accurate characterization of the district's partisan bent.  In reality it's a dead-even district.

    But Latham is mopping up Boswell on money, that concerns me and will matter.  If Boswell loses, it's because he just didn't feel it, didn't want to do what was necessary.  That's what mediocre fundraising by a longtime incumbent tells me.

    •  call me when Tom Latham (0+ / 0-)

      Runs off a home invader with a shotgun. That story is worth money, and it's not the distant past.

      I agree the fund-raising is worrisome, but Boswell has served 8 terms and each time since 2004 he's been listed as "endangered."  He knows a lot of tricks.
