  •  CA-25 Lee Rogers: Progressive merits support (0+ / 0-)

    Standout aspects of Rogers include:

    1. His "waging a rematch"-- should be done by every first-time Dem candidate (unless their first run shows them to be incompetent), because typically more than one cycle is needed to sufficiently narrow the 'familiarity gap' enjoyed by incumbents.

    2. He exceeded expectations in his first run, which was underfunded, against a very well-funded long-time incumbent.

    3. He is a Doctor (specialist in amputation prevention), which is a good profile for Dem candidates in the era of ACA roll-out.
