   Just saw a strong refreshing performance by Elizabeth Colbert Busch on Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd.  Steven's Colbert's big sister 'is in the hunt' for an upset in the race for R-con Tim Scott who went to the Senate. This will bring it down to 16 seats. Let us take a good look.

Elizabeth Colbert Busch wedged in crowded special election race

Since South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley tapped Rep. Tim Scott for the Senate, the competition for the 1st District’s congressional seat has become a very crowded race.
There are 16 Republican candidates, including former Gov. Mark Sanford and Teddy Turner, son of media mogul Ted Turner.
Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert Bush, older sister of comedian Stephen Colbert, is running for office for the first time. She explained to The Daily Rundown’s Chuck Todd why she chose to get into politics now.
“I think it’s time to have a common sense approach to what’s happening, and to represent my district, and to stop this extreme behavior and dysfunctional behavior in Washington, D.C.,” she said.


  Right off the bat, She fits the model of what it will take to turn red seats blue.
A smart progressive technocrat she 'leans forward' to focus on the district and modern solutions to reduce waste and increase productivity while protecting the social safety net and the ability of US business and non profits to invest in research and training to build jobs and markets.  

   Chuck Todd is not easy, but even he seems to know a 'real contender' when he meets one. She did very well.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
