    It is apples and oranges.
    DNC support comes in many forms. I'd be careful in that regard.

    Well no offense but they cant just concede the seat. The GOP are vulnerable right now if Beto is polling well they have to give him support. That wont take away from the other races they are also supporting though. No one should expect a victory but I want them trying especially in the Senate because every vote counts.

    This. It's close enough in TX that I would throw good $$ at it, even if Cruz wins 51/49. The DNC really has nothing to lose.

    Pick your battles. Cruz is actually a bit vulnerable, so I'd throw money at that race. Blackburn replacing Corker? Done deal

    Also, investing in TX is a long term proposition. Even if this guy doesn't pull it off, it can't hurt to get the broader message in people's living rooms and show that the party isn't just going to pack it in every time there's a fight.

    Dems would be stupid to blow off Texas. Cruz looks like a used car salesman and is about as popular as one. Bottom line is in this cycle they need to take advantage of the few opportunities out there beyond Nevada and Arizona. That means Bredesen in TN and O'Rourke in TX. Your hope in TX, unlikely but possible, is that Trump Humpers have no loyalty to the Zodiac Killer and sit that race out. If the DNC is smart (TBD) or some left leaning outside group wants to get involved, I'd be running commercials showing Cruz' GOP convention diss of Chump to keep these people home.

    Voodoo economics -> VP -> #41. In politics, anything goes but it's business, not personal (something tD and DC need to understand).
