  •  Make that 18 seats we need (0+ / 0-)

    We can write UT-04 off.  Somebody should run, but unless Love gets into some serious scandal, this seat just flipped.

    Iron sharpens Iron. Normal is a dryer setting. STOP illegal immigration NOW! -- Make it LEGAL. If Corporations are People--Let's draft them.

      With Young's district in FL, Wolf's district in VA and Latham's district in IA the Dems have 3 districts which are ALL far easier than Matheson's district in UT.  

      Frankly I say forget this district and lets focus our otherwise wasted resources trying to defend UT-04 on the three far easier pick up opportunities.  In the end Dems will be much better off for it.  The Dems will have 3 new reps who will ALL be far bluer than Matheson ever was.

        The only GOP held seat in the country which is nearly as likely to go blue as UT-04 is to go red is CA-31.  That's been true of CA-31 for the 2014 election, since June of 2012.

        The seats you mention, and a handful of others, are excellent pickup opportunities, but not near certainties.
