    It just still takes a candidate. Find a good one and I'll be the first to donate to them. And, hopefully, we'll get a little more national attention now that SSP has merged with DK

    •  In Texas, we call it (0+ / 0-)

      "the 254-county strategy".  I

      t's a challeng: 19 million people, 5 major metropolitan areas with toep-tier media markets (Houston, D-FW each with 6 M +, san Antonio, Austin, and El Paso.  Then there are smaller markets: Amarillo, Midland-Odessa, Waco, Lubbock, Texarkana, Corpus Christi, Lower RG Valley, etc.).  It ain't cheap to run a statewide  campaign.  That said, an urban district offers a lot of bang for the buck, if there's a credible candidate.
