  •  Grayson ran in a new district (0+ / 0-)

    They created a new mainly Hispanic district so Grayson had that seat  won once he won the primary. He should keep that seat as long as he wants.
    The house is so gerrymandered I don't see a way for to many more gains short of the republicans continuing it's major obstruction. we also have the problem of democrats not voting in non presidential elections.

    •  Fired up, and ready to go. (2+ / 0-)

      RE: "we also have the problem of democrats not voting in non presidential elections."

      So, let's work on that. I think, in part, that is what Chocolate Chip is trying to say. Let's keep working, and do what we can to get out the vote in the next election.

      I hope we don't have to wait until the 2020 redistricting to have a shot at this thing again...

      admittedly 2014 looks like a long shot right now with it being an off year and how hard it is for us to get our people out in mid-terms... but it's worth a shot!

      2016 seems like a real possibility if Obama ends his term with high popularity and we really steamroll the presidential election.

      ...

      but 2 years is a long time in politics ... let's set ourselves up for the possibility to take advantage of things if they fall our way... target those GOPers we can beat early ... and then get the job done.

      •  Did you see the piece on Patty Murphy? (0+ / 0-)

        She accepted an "impossible task" and triumphed.

        I find it hard to believe a bunch of women* can't do as well or better!

        *and our male colleagues (which may include you)
