    He wins by roughly the same percentages, year in and ear out when someone actually runs against him.  But he'll continue to do so as long as Dems simply ignore the district.  The party needs to start putting in at least a bit of money, and working to build the brand in district, and simply chip away at his margins, cycle after cycle, getting more rare Dem and Indie voters to actually vote, and more occasional voters to vote every time.

    The guy who ran as a 'Democrat' in the primary this last time ran against Boehner in the primary in 2010, as a Republican, then dropped out between the primary and the general.

    We've got to start somewhere, and that somewhere is running someone against him, building name recognition, and targeting a campaign towards the places where people across the political spectrum agree.  Even at the Representative level, Reps should be representing all constituents, not just those who identify with them ideologically.
