    They really do want Khanna in the House.  They knew their names would get media coverage.  I assume they plan to leverage that into support, donations and free name recognition for their guy.  A smart tactic with a young political rookie running against a long-time sitting incumbent.

    I dont live in Silicon Valley or know much about either campaign, but regardless who you support, I think it is important to push back against the idea that Obama is somehow bringing the massive power of a coordinated OFA full-out campaign against a sitting Democrat.

    He is not.

    •  I doubt those guys would pick this race... (0+ / 0-)

      ...if Obama objected.

      Does it seem that strange that Obama would officially endorse the incumbent while sending resources to a candidate more to his liking?

      It's all about keeping up appearances.

      What we need is a Democrat in the White House.
