    If Democrats vote, we win, else it is deja vu 1994 and 2010 all over again. I just don't understand why Democrats don't keep banging the drum 48/7 on how EVERY election counts, just as much as presidential ones. And Va. is not alone here. We are going to have to do the same in the 3/11/14 Fla. special election with Alex Sink running for Young's seat. See lost the 2010 governorship to Rick Scott because of abysmal base turnout. And in 2014, progressive Oregonian Jeff Merkley needs our back to defeat anti-ACA Dr. Monica Wehby, Conger, or similar nominees. The GOP, in W's 2004 race, was able to make sure that baby sitters were provided for some low intensity voters in Ohio, and we must do the same. Some of our outside spending on special election and midterm money must also go to the analytic type "Cave" people who put Obama over in 2012 and McAuliffe in 2013.
