    Is going to be a serious issue.   For some of us here in the midwest we are a wasteland ;)  But part of it is that candidates go unchallenged.  

    In Kansas, two house races had no democratic challenger, and one of those is in a district previously held by Dennis Moore.

    It's hard to pickup seats when we don't make a better effort to float names out.   We spend time going after "potential" districts, but I don't believe we can build any infrastructure for future challenge if you never setup any challenges at all.   Those areas become more and more (R) because they don't ever hear the opposing case.

    Just food for thought
