Run Dem, Run

The debate has started again about who to run and where. KT has this to say, and I can't do much more than say I agree.

Scott Henson over Grits for Breakfast sent me this, this, and this last night about Frank Corte.

This is the same guy that people are advocating not to challenge because his seat is viewed as unwinable. People would rather give Corte another free ride even though he is bad on women's rights, bad on civil rights, bad on education, bad on health care, and bad for San Antonio.

If you want to give your money to different candidates that is excellent. If you want to knock on doors in a different district or call around for another candidate, then that is your prerogative. Just know that you were given that option because a candidate ran there.

Democrats must run to make a difference, and the underdogs are even given license to be so bold as to talk about the issues. As long as we write off certain areas then we cannot and will not win them. We cannot and will not be able to change minds or educate people about the Democratic Party. So focus your attention on the tight races, but running ever race helps every candidate up and down the ballot.
