  •  My only worry is that (5+ / 0-)

    Oceguera has been running such a limp campaign. Most of the media I hear out of Nevada is negative for him, and he hasn't been taking firm stances on some big issues including the ACA.

    While Heck is too conservative to be a good fit for the district, I worry that that may not be enough. And that Oceguera's field operation may also not be enough.

      First off, I've regularly been covering the coordinated campaign here. There's plenty of field happening.

      And secondly, pundits will be pundits. Because Oceguera screwed up on Ralston's show in May, then did his apology on Sebelius' column, certain pundits will have chips on their shoulders.

      Also, Heck really isn't as good of a candidate as you seem to think. As I've said before, his handlers are far better at working the media than working any field.
