If he wins with 40%, I’ll be happy. If Djou gets 40%, Case 32% and Hanabusa 28%, it would set Djou up nicely for the November election for the full term, since whichever of Case or Hanabusa wins the RAT primary in September will have a hard time getting supporters of the other candidate to vote for them.
The Republicans will never win if they don’t start educating their spokespeople on TV. The Democrats have talking points - most of them lies - the uneducated Republican just sits there. They should be able to strike back with the truth.
Example: the Democrats say ObamaCare strengthens Medicare. The truth is, this is a big LIE. The CBO says that would be double-counting:
To describe the full amount of HI trust fund savings as both improving the governments ability to pay future Medicare benefits and financing new spending outside of Medicare would essentially double-count a large share of those savings and thus overstate the improvement in the governments fiscal position.

Sorry, repeating this in the hope some GOP leader will see it!
