    to highlight the "Democrat" part too much. Not that she should run away from her party label obviously, but I'd wager that her biggest fear right now is losing DTS voters to Parks, not Democrats.

      Park from taking any Democratic support? Are there even enough DTS voters for Park to get the top-two spot?

    •  I disagree, she has to say Democrat over and over (1+ / 0-)

      Brownley needs to get half the Dems, then she makes top two regardless of what anyone else does.

      She should stencil Democrat on her forehead.  At this point, that's her only shot at top two because she is mostly unknown in the district while most people know Parks and Strickland.

        Since if Parks gets the other half of the Dems, obviously Brownley is toast.

        Brownley simply has to dominate the Dems, and get more than zero DTS and she makes top two.
