  •  Arizona & Kansas (0+ / 0-)

    Arizona will turn blue faster than Kansas simply because of demographics. That said, the Lt. Governor-turned-Governor you refer to (Mark Parkinson) actually didn’t TRY to get re-elected on his own. He refused to run despite Democrats basically begging him to do it.

    Opinion polls at the time showed he was quite popular and stood, by far, the best chance of defeating Brownback among all Democrats. He also would’ve been running alongside strong candidates for AG, Treas & SoS (all Sebelius appointees) and might’ve pulled them across the finish line, too.

    Sebelius left the KS Democratic Party in better shape than it had been in years, its failures are certainly not her fault, nor the fault of President Obama. Honestly, if I had to blame anyone, I’d blame Parkinson.  

    Kansan by birth, Californian by choice and Gay by the Grace of God.
