    Andrew and he's been running all around NV-3 working his ass off, but for what?

    Why is it acceptable for the party to tell us what candidate they think is worthy?

    •  They're just using their professional judgment (3+ / 0-)

      I've been on the short end of that stick before.  It's unpleasant, but not unfair.  Determining who they think they have a chance of making a solid race is part of their job.  It's not a problem for them to indicate that one candidate appears to have what it takes to receive party support.  It's when they then try to put their elbow on the scales in the actual campaign that it can become a problem -- if Titus is as good as they believe, she should be able to win the primary fairly.

      As for what he's earned by working his ass off -- what was he supposed to earn?  There was no promise of success.  He's gotten name recognition, and if he has conducted himself well, he has probably advanced his political future somewhere, even if not in this particular race.
