  •  the 50 state strategy has to continue (6+ / 0-)

    So we can put the GOP on defense and make them waste money.
    So we can be ready to seize opportunities when a scandal hits.
    So we can have more feedback from states across the union, rather than pointy heads in Washington.
    So we can train the next generation of leaders in the Democratic party.
    So we can make intergenerational changes in the map, instead of playing a short-sighted swing-state strategy.

    let's get to 60 in the senate!

    •  Why the 50 state strategy: the Senate. (6+ / 0-)

      The rural states are disproportionately represented in the Senate, and disproportionately red. And only the Senate has the filibuster. That's a recipe for a Repub veto on anything meaningful unless we continue to be competitive in the Senate.
