    A) You'd rather win it than lose it; it can help change the media narrative in at the very least a not unhelpful way (Versus "Democrats can't even beat this guy!") It's also a morale boost to the local party, which doesn't get many victories.

    B) There's always the off chance that it can be held for a cycle or two and if you're going to have ANY chance of holding it in a general, it's with an incumbent. If Colbert-Busch strikes a good balance, as some Dems in red districts manage, she might hang in there for a while. It's not very likely at all, but you never know.

    C) I doubt the party is spending all that much money on it relatively speaking anyway.
