    Forcing Republicans to put money into what were once "safe districts"  will help us tremendously all across the nation, most importantly in swing districts.

    The 50 State strategy at work!

    •  This is more than just "making them spend money" (0+ / 0-)

      That's what we do when we run the best person we can find against an incumbent Republican who "everyone knows" can't lose, who is considered a safe hold in all the race trackers. The ones where the closest thing to a win is pinning Joe Gooper down in the district and losing by 3 points less than the blowout from last time.  And those are still worthwhile as part of a long term red to purple to blue 435 district strategy.

      Begich-Stevens is one where we can realistically take the seat outright.
