  •  As annan pointed out (12+ / 0-)

    Indiana is a critical state this year even if people tend to ignore us. With just a little influence we could literally be the stalwarts in holding the line in the Senate.

    And as I just diaried, because Donnelly is going for the Senate we have a chance at loosing IN-2 to a the repugs, which is why we need to fight hard and fight long in this state.

    We gave it to Obama in 08, we can do it again.

      anyway, having been gerrymandered to force Donnelly out. Hence why he ran for the Senate against Lugar, who was generally considered to be invincible at the time.

      You are, however, still right about the importance of Indiana in general.

        But looking at numbers here, we still have a shot. Its a tough slog sure, but with enough GOTV effort and some education about the opponent the win is there.
