  •  probably the main thing that makes those dem (1+ / 0-)

    challengers vast underdogs is that their state dem offices and  their supporters have NO FUCKING CLUE how much lying goes on for the incumbents and how much lying about their challengers goes on on the state's loudest RW radio stations (probably endorsed by the state university sports programs).

    that is the case almost everywhere- dems are not getting their candidates backs and don't even know they're not.

    that's why many races are 'unwinnable' or some candidates are 'unacceptably liberal'.

    and until the dem party or the major progressive orgs don't organize a challenge to those radio stations that is why i don't give or volunteer anymore- anything i can contribute can be easily yelled over by some young republican loudmouth with a free speech free ride and a big megaphone.

    for suggestions, see post below

    •  State parties do give candidates support (0+ / 0-)

      However,  they have limited resources.  If you have two candidates running and one of their districts is R+5 and the other is R+25, naturally the state party is going to put money into the R+5 district.

      State parties do a lot of work behind the scenes with all of their candidates (including sacrificial lambs, which the Democrat running in an R+25 district is) and offer them support.  

      •  but my point is the same- RW radio is used to (1+ / 0-)

        attack dem candidates and generally determine what is acceptable and not acceptable in candidates- blue dogs vs progressives, and the state dem parties have no clue whats getting blasted from those stations- and they are coordinated with the GOP.

        here in NM the UNM lobos station worked over former gov richardson endlessly and then when diane denish ran they did a great job of marrying her to richardson all over the state, aside from all their other swiftboating - so we end up with twit stooge martinez and most of her admin was likely picked for her.

        that station was worth a lot of votes.

        and with their lobos stickers on everything, martinez's GOP/koch stooges will continue to benefit from that giant statewide megaphone while they defund education- including the uni itself - and the dems have no strategy to deal with it.
