    Being a whole 6% more Republican than the state and even more so than the 7th.

    The winnable district seems to be the 2nd where Kline might retire or is beatable in a wave. Paulsen is a much stronger incumbent and if he retired it would still probably take a wave or a shitty Republican candidate (like Bachmann) to win it. The 6th seems winnable if we dump a crapload of money on it as Bachmann chronically underperforms.

      I was always under the impression that Paulsen was a couple of ticks too far to the right for his constituency.  Your detailed numbers have given me a new perspective.  I presume he's good on constituent services as well.  I'll have to ask some folks from Minnesota around here about some of the issues he could be vulnerable on.
