I have no doubt that a lot of hard work could make Maine competitive, but is it worth the resources it would take. Would rather use those stretched resources on MN, WI, PA and MI, where there are many more electoral votes and overlapping media markets (MI and PA also overlap with Ohio).
I agree. we don’t want to get bogged down in difficult races if we don’t have to and, so far, we don’t have to. That doesn’t mean we should abandon our candidates in tough races though, especially since Mr. Akin has probably turned all of our races into tough races. He has certainly changed the dynamics of every battle and our prospects for good fortunes.
