  •  Contest every seat. (4+ / 0-)

    I spent a few years living and working in Austin.  Even in a supposedly blue area, there were five seats not contested by a Democrat in the 2012 election.  I wound up voting for 2 Greens, 2 Libertarians, and left one spot blank.

    You lose every race you don't run for.  And don't think that this is just an issue in bright red areas.  I spent many years in Champaign County, IL.  University town, majority Blue voters, yadda yadda.  Also uncontested races on the ballot.

    Republicans SHOW UP.

    -7.75 -4.67
