    Brunner hasn't been financially competitive because Bob Menendez told Brunner that he'd make sure she couldn't raise money.

    Look, Brunner wins the primary and her campaign fundraising problems are gone.

    However, the reasons Lee Fisher is struggling against Brunner will remain even if he limps across the finish line next week.

    Why prop up a candidate who's doing this poorly despite having all the advantages and not the candidate who's only weakness is a lack of campaign money?

    •  If Brunner is what the OH electorate (0+ / 0-)

      wants then she'll win the primary. She has won statewide races before. If it is Fisher that they want he'll win the primary.

        You can keep writing the same comment over and over again, but you're missing the whole point of this diary!

        Take what you've been repeatedly saying.   Okay, assume it's actually true.  How are you not PROVING my point then that it's wasteful for the DSCC to be supporting Fisher by propping him up?  Doesn't it make more sense to wait a week and then use the money to help the nominee??

          bitter rancor that everyone here had when Christine Cegelis lost the primary for IL-6 in 2006 to Tammy Duckworth. Everyone blamed the horrible DCCC for her loss even though Cegelis had run two years earlier, had name recognition, and should have fared better. Again, for whatever reason, the voters there didn't want her to run again.

          If Brunner is what the voters of OH want then they'll vote for her. If she is "so great", even with the DSCC backing Fisher, she should win. She was won statewide before and is known in the state.

          The DSCC is probably getting involved because maybe they're seeing something with her campaign that is making them concerned. They'd probably stay neutral if they thought she could win the general election.

          But ultimately it falls on the voters in the state. They are the ones who make the final call. So, if she loses, then take it up with the voters of OH.
