    and no offsetting big money for Dems.

    You nailed it.

    •  NC's overnight change from Dem legislature (4+ / 0-)

      to R was due to one wealthy person's well-placed PAC contributions.  It doesn't take a lot of $ to flip a house or state senate seat.

      Mr Pope figured this out.  Jane Meyer reported it in the New Yorker, famously.  The Kochs, or anyone with a couple of $M laying around, can figure it out, too.

      For a could mill, you can flip any Dem house or senate and have money for breakfast the day after the election.

      State Dems better have a plan.  This could be the biggest issue Dems face over the next several election cycles.

      Hope I'm wrong.
