    No. He was going - and rightly so - to run where his home base was.

    •  Seriously? You doubt he would have gotten higher (0+ / 0-)

      than 43% in the 11th when our liberal some dude lost by a similar margin to what Obama did? I said in retrospect and by that metric I don't see how it's possible that Holden would have done worse against Barletta than he did against Cartwright. All that aside it is was obscenely clear that the GOP drew just his conservadem base in with much more liberal strongly Dem areas in order to specifically neutralize him, so if Holden was any partisan at all he would have taken one for the team.

      •  I didn't say that (1+ / 0-)

        I said that he would never have run elsewhere. He wouldn't have won, but he could have kept it closer.
