  •  Is he as bad as Musgrave? (1+ / 0-)

    If so, it might be conceivably possible to beat him under ideal circumstances. More realistically, we should have someone at least respectable do a suicide run against him and publicize how much of a wingnut he is. That way, he can at least be used for fundraising the way the Minnesota DFL uses Bachmann, and particularly for shoring up local parties in his district.

      If it's impossible to find someone to run against him, there should at least be a PAC willing to fact check the lies he tells every two years. Or to highlight his voting record. I call his office frequently and remind them that Grover Norquist doesn't vote in this district, but that's almost a waste of time.

      But his district is far to the right of Musgrave's old district.  Obama got 49% in CD4 when Musgrave was defeated, he only received 40% in CD5 and the Democrat was defeated by a similar margin that year.
