Who are these R's who, according to the Repubs, at risk and in need of money? Here are those R's and our Dem challengers:
(OH-01) Chabot (R) Cranley (D)
(VA-02) Drake (R) Kellam (D)
(NE-01) Fortenberry (R) Moul (D)
(AZ-05) Hayworth (R) Mitchell (D)
(CO-04) Musgrave (R) Paccione (D)
(NY-20) Sweeney (R) Gillibrand (D)
(PA-07) Weldon (R) Sestak (D)
See some good news? And a surprise? More below.
Thus, the Rep's are showing concern, seven weeks before the election, for seats not even ranked in their 15 most endangered.
Now the kicker: Where did NE-01 come from? Neither Bowers, Sabato, Cook, or the Hotline rank this seat anywhere. Is it a sleeper? As of 6/30/06, Dem Moul has almost as much money as incumbent Rep Fortenberry. (490,000 to 369,000). A couple of weeks ago, Dick Cheney came to the district to raise money for Fortenberry. http://www.dailykos.com/...
Can we even take the fight to an unranked Nebraska district? You bet!
You know, even if we do not ultimately win all of these races, forcing the R's to fight for them has helped our candidates lots of other top races. Let's keep up the pressure. Please contribute, or if you can, volunteer for these campaigns.
