    Dems should contest everywhere. As someone originally from Texas I can say that it would be damn near impossible for a Dem to win certain districts simply because they are a Democrat (seriously, it almost seems like some conservatives equate voting for a Dem as voting for the Devil himself).

    But sometimes you can get lucky. A Congressman could suddenly find himself embroiled in some scandal and suddenly you have a race on your hands.

    Even if the Democratic Party doesn't spend a cent on that candidate, they still NEED to have a candidate on the ballot. After all, you can't win if you don't try.
