      While some here continue to advocate for pie-in-the-sky competing in "every district," that's not economically or electorally feasible. If you are in a blood red district like Oh-08, you can do the same: work in a more flippable district.

      We saw this in the presidential campaign of 2004, when our Kerry headquarters was flooded with people from Labor Day on arriving not just from New York and Illinois and Maryland, but from places like West Virginia, Georgia and Indiana that weren't really in play. So they came here to Ohio which was, and which would probably have gone for Kerry if people were not prevented from voting in many areas. (The year of the infamous up to 12-hour lines.)

      Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.
