         for focusing on local and district races. Where I live (unlike Iowa) nobody cares what we think about in the presidential primary (unless you have enough money to make big contributions). In the general election we are a safe blue state so we are taken for granted then as well.  So congressional, legislative and ballot measure races are what matters.

        I don't think the commenter was saying that she or he will not vote, but will focus their energy on lower races. It makes sense to me; nobody is entitled to my time or money just because they have a D after their name. I didn't give any money to O/B in 2012 but helped elect some great new members to Congress and the Lege and re-elected an outstanding State Senator (though because of redistricting I couldn't vote for her this time.)
