    Effectiveness might be the 100 minus the abs value of the delta in the polls.

    You focus your money where you can get the most Congressional vote per dollar. I'm betting it tracks pretty closely with the Trump +/- on 538.

    1. Jon Tester - D/2012 - MT - 47.3% delta from expected alignment w/ trump - DSCC spent $4.14 million in that race or 6.7% of their total expenses.
    2. Sherrod Brown - D/2012 - OH - 40.2% - $7.0M - 11.3%
    3. Claire McCaskill - D/2012 - MO - 37.4% - $3.9M - 6.2%
    4. Heidi Heitkamp - D/2012 - ND - 36.3% - $4.5M - 7.2%
    5. Doug Jones - D/2018 - AL - 32.2% - ??? - ???
    6. Joe Manchin - D/2012 - WV - 32.0% - $0.0M - 0.0% * $0 in 2012 likely because he was polling +30. So that's where the effectiveness factor comes in.
    7. Tammy Baldwin - D/2012 - WI - 32.0% - $7.9M - 12.7%
    8. Joe Donnelly - D/2012 - IN - 28.5% - $4.2M - 6.8%
    9. Al Franken - D/2012 - MN - 25.9% - $0.0M - 0.0% - Likely because he was polling well but public polls had him at +10-15%
    10. Jeff Merkley - D/2014 - OR - 24.4% - $0.0M - 0.0% - Won by 20%
    11. Robert Casey - D/2012 - PA - 24.2% - $0.2M - 0.3% - Won by 9%
    12. Debbie Stabenow - $0 - Won by 20%
    13. Gary Peters - D/2014 - MI - 21.4% - $5.0M - 6.8% - won by 13%
    14. Tina Smith - D/2018 TBD
    15. Amy Klobuchar - $0 - Won by 35%!!
    16. Maggie Hassan - D/2016 - NH - 19.4% - $22.2M - 18.7%
    17. Cory Booker - $0 - Won by 13%
    18. Ron Wyden - $0 - Won by 33%!
    ...
    21. Catherine Masto - D/2016- NV - 15.3% - $15.3M - 12.9%
    ...
    23. Michael Bennett - D/2010 - 14.5% - $8.5M - 16.3%
    24. Bill Nelson - D/2012 - FL - 14.1% - $5.0M - 8.0%
    ...
    31. Tim Kaine - D/2012 - VA - 8.6% - $9.0M - 14.5% - ????????? Probably just a raw numbers game here. Protect the seat.
    ..
    33. Chris Murphy - D/2012 - CT - 5.2% - $4.3M - 6.9%


    Losses:
    78. Mary Landrieu - D/2014 - LA - (-9.2%) - $5.1M - 7.0% - Lost by 11.8% :-\ w t f were they spending money here for?
    79. Baron Hill - D/2016 - IN - (-9.6%) - $12.7M - 10.7% - Lost by 9.7% - more wt f? Both of these top ones are so bizarre since the people who were elected there aren't voting out of line with their state.
    81. Mark Begich - D/2014 - AK - (-14.2%) - $6.4M - 8.8% - Lost by 2.2%
    82. Jason Kander - D/2016 - MO - (-12.7%) - $13.0M - 11.0%
    87. Richard Carmona - D/2012 - AZ - (-23.6%) - $4.0M - 6.3% Fixed
    88. Bruce Braley - D/2014 - IA - (-19.3%) - $12.4M - 17.1% - Lost by 8.3%, again w t f?
    94. Deborah Ross - D/2016 - NC - (-33.1%) - $24.3M - 20.6% - Lost by 5.7%
    94. Kay Hagan - D/2014 - NC - (-33.6%) - $15.0M - 20.7% - Lost by 1.5%
    97. Katie McGinty - D/2016 - PA - (-35.8%) - $24.8M - 21.0% - Lost by 1.5% - $10.2M in 2010 (Spector) as well. Lost there too.
    99. Shelley Berkley - D/2012 - NV - (-43.1%) - $5.4M - 8.7% *Lost by 1.2% - Dean Heller is second most out of favor with the Dems relative to his state. Votes with Trump 92% of the time.
    100. Mark Udall - D/2014 - CO - (-46.5%) - $10.1M - 14.0% - Lost by 1.9%. MOST out of favor with dems relative to the state. Gardner votes w/ trump 90.9%.

    *There's always math, so shut up.
    Yeah this is total expenditures including the general election and neglects to show who their primary opponent is and how much money they (donít) get from the party. Nobody is arguing that if the party decides to give vastly more money to Manchin than Swearingen, that he probably wonít win, obviously he will because money is probably the biggest predictor of who wins these races. My argument is that in a lot of these primaries (and I believe it was the intercept that showed some of the embarrassing losses they had where they threw money at the centrist who lost and told the more left candidate to exit the race) they donít necessarily fund the best option and itís more ideologically driven as that Cornell study showed.

    That has nothing to do with a primary.

    Au contraire. Even if I hadnít moved back itís where Iím from, where my family is, where I own land, etc. Susan Collins represents Maine, not CA or NY.

    Ah yes. Letís primary a Democrat in West Virginia.

    Your brand of politics will go real well in the state that has the highest trump approval ratings.

    Murkowski voted present rather than no since the Montana senator was at his daughter's wedding. If she had voted no, then Manchin's vote would've mattered.

    Yep, they clearly coordinated that ahead of time.

    Because Suzie loves to be the center of attention. The "moderate" Republican who both sides have to court. Except she always ends up siding with the Republicans. Imagine that?
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

    Presumably Kavanaugh will be just blasted to the bejeezus on the shoulders of Squi and PJ, wearing mirrored shades, his tie for a headband, and a Georgetown Prep half-shirt with the sleeves ripped off, high five-ing everyone while being escorted by a couple dozen strippers rolling kegs down the aisle at his swearing in ceremony.

    This was never about that, but sure, you go for sarcasm if it makes you feel good about all of this.

    Or, he has a Jebby in full ecclesiastical garments preceded by an acolyte swinging a thurfir and a cross bearer leading him into the swearing in
