  •  Definitely not easy districts (0+ / 0-)

    But considering Mica, Posey and DeSantis all voted to shutdown the gov't and default I'd say they were at least worthy of a look.  Add in the fact that the FL GOP will have Rick Snott at the top of the ticket and the time may be ripe to crack that nut.  58% against underwhelming and underfunded opposition is not what I'd call a strong showing.  I'm not sure how Obama did in those districts or what the registration breakdown is but the fact that they didn't crack 60% tells me they're somewhat weak.

    •  Mica I just don't consider beatable (0+ / 0-)

      He was my Congressman until 2002.  He's a smart guy, excellent campaigner, excellent with constituent services and is good at pretending to be a moderate.  In fact a few times I called his office when he was my Rep he personally talked policy with me.  I've never had that happen with any other officeholder.  I can't stand his politics, but if there's anyone who can beat back a challenge even in a tough year it's Mica.  

      I do think DeSantis can be beaten given the right circumstances.  He's a bagger through and through.
