    •  There's actually something I'm wondering there. (0+ / 0-)

      One of Stevenson's top districts was NC-02, which was the "black second", and as Wiki said it had the highest African-American population in the state.  It kind of stands out, and so I'm wondering if it's a coincidence or if they were more concerned with keeping African-Americans out of the (all-important) Democratic primary than out of the (usually perfunctory) general elections.

      On the other hand, Stevenson didn't have the kind of drop in NC-02 that he had in NY-16, so maybe it is just a coincidence.

      27, Dem, Dude seeing a dude, CT-04(originally), PA-02/NY-10 (formerly PA-02/NY-12, then PA-02/NY-14). Also at [ Xenocrypt's Site].
