  •  Thank you for noting that... (8+ / 0-)

    I'm really really tired of the Missouri Democratic Party writing off Congressional districts as lost causes and not even bothering to find candidates. This special election seems to me to be a special opportunity, maybe even a trial run for the 2014 elections. Dems have some momentum now, and the obstructionist TP'ers have fallen out of favor. Maybe Sowers should try again. But, please, let's not just punt on another district, okay, people?

    •  Sowers is good (0+ / 0-)

      Tommy Sowers probably has higher name rec than any other Democrat we could come up with short of a Carnahan. He ran a strong campaign and raised a boatload of money. Since Democratic leaders get to pick, they should go with Sowers.
