    I have spoken with many advocates for what would be this or that longshot races. That happens because many of the most corrupt Republicans (with ties to the Abramoff scandal) have engineered very safe Districts for themselves.

    And yet, one front page story linking one of these jokers to scandal can turn the dynamics of the race overnight, but that type of story will not win the rece. It only helps.

    To win, there are metrics that these long shot candidates need to meet. Passion. Energy. Volunteers. And yes, Money. It has to be raised and fund raising numbers are a reflection on the viability of a Candidate and the passion of their supports.

    Mica and his record should help the Democrat in FL-07 raise money. He is a gift.

    Mica is a perfect fit to be a name-brand bad Republican. Folks should know his name in this cycle the same way folks knew who Pombo was in 2006. He is a poster boy for earmarks, the revolving door and corruption, but it is up to those who want to defeat him to put him on that poster and make his deeds well known.

    Mica was an active player in the Florida recount. His actions are a direct link to why Bush has been in the WH and all that comes with that.

    When the DCCC is looking to expand the field, they will look for races where the candidate and his or her supporters are already proving that they can win.

    I think FL-07 could be one of those races, but it is up to the Faye Armitage campaign to make the case why. It is up to them to answer the questions that you raise.

    Cheers
