    They don't want the presidential campaigns coming in and hurting their own re-election bids.

    •  I hope so but National GOP want to win (1+ / 0-)

      5 of the last 6 times Democrats won the popular vote. Most Democrats in Florida and really across these states are packed into a few districts. Yes, there may be vulnerable state Republican Reps but generally, the state legislative maps mirror Congressional maps. Give 11 evs from PA and 17 evs from FL and maybe 11 from Michigan and that is a problem in the future.
