    While not having a statewide race might have boosted my support, I don't think it would have altered the outcome. Looking at the outcome district-by-district, it's clear that for all the sturm unt drang among activists in my town, about 75% of the voters stayed in the column they voted in for Congress.

    Maybe that's Lesson #11: Voters are more "low-information" on political issues than political activists want to believe. That doesn't mean they're dumb, just that they spend far less time thinking about political issues than we do.

    Thanks for your support and your constant recommendation of my diaries!
