    It's just that it's not clear it will hurt him. I don't know of anyone who will really try to challenge him from his own party, so worrying about a primary challenge isn't clear. If he does something as nutty as comparing Obama to Hitler over ObamaCare, that's one thing, but what else might be do to really embarrass himself?

    Also, it's not clear just how swingy the district is. The ceiling might be lower, but it might still be more Republican than others. As I said, some of the territory he took in seems fertile for Democrats, but is all of it? Unless I'm missing something, there's no presidential number for his district just yet.

    I think the biggest mark in our favor is just that a lot of the territory is new. The more we let him win, the more difficult it will be to get him out.
