    of his being too liberal for what the district's voters are okay with.  Money can be gotten from alternative places, but it's difficult for someone with 4 past runs to rebrand himself as a moderate.  I'm not saying we have to run a Blue Dog, but I just can't buy that there aren't any decently positioned state legislators or business people in the district.

    •  Sue Scherer? Andy Manar? (1+ / 0-)

      Both of those are moderate Democrats (Manar is from Macoupin County, which is ancestrally-Democratic but is probably trending away from us, and Scherer is from Decatur and was recently elected from a state house district that consists of the northern part of Manar's state senate district)

      Elizabeth Warren on the Senate Banking Committee is a BFD!
