    Re: Mary Landrieu loses to Bill Cassidy in Louisiana Senate Runoff Election

    There is this odd thing I have seen in the election coverage that is in this one too. The media keeps saying the dems faired so badly because the GOP nationalized the election. That is all the democrats ever try to do, so I do not get where they see this as some pro-GOP gambit all of the sudden. The DNC couldn't give two cents about local/state issues.

    The thing is the RNC pretty much stayed out of the midterms.

    The GOP didn't really have to do a damn thing, just sit back and let all of Obama's policies decide the midterm elections.

    Well if spending almost $2B constitutes pretty much staying out of the midterms then you are correct.

    You do know who the RNC and DNC are don't you ? If you didn't I doubt you would be a politico and would be participating on the DP.

    Party Fundraising

    >" With the rise of outside groups, the national party structures have been undermined to a certain degree. Super PACs and politically-active nonprofits give big donors many more ways to support their preferred party and candidates. That may be one reason why both the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committees are projected to spend less than they did four years ago. The DNC has spent $114.8 million so far, lagging behind the RNC’s $125 million, and CRP projects it will spend $155.3 million to the RNC’s projected $169.1 million. In 2010, the DNC spent $228.3 million and the RNC, $215.7 million — significantly more than this time around. For the Democrats, that’s a significant decline from 2010, when the DNC spent $228.3 million. Similarly, the RNC spent $215.7 million in 2010.
    The same is not true, though, of the other left-leaning party committees, including the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Possibly because of President Obama’s vigorous fundraising for those groups, they are projected by CRP to spend a total of $427 million by Election Day. That is the single area where Democrats are projected to have a significant advantage. Republican equivalents — the National Republican Congressional Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee — are projected to spent $330.9 million."<

    Obama nationalized the election making it clear his policies would be on the ballot, thus the Republican landslide.

    Senators like Landreau, pawns to Obama, are now out of a job.

    Seemed like the exact opposite to me. Obama basically stayed out of the race because many of the idiots running thought being affiliated with him would be bad due to his approval rating. How quickly they forget who elected them.

    They were damned if they did and damned if they didn't.

    They couldn't run on Obama's record and they didn't have any other record to run on. I'd say it's their own fault for placing their eggs in his basket.
