    Senators like Landreau, pawns to Obama, are now out of a job.
    The DNC tried not to run a national campaign. It was like Freaky Friday, but on Tuesday. The two parties switched strategies from past elections.

    Possibly, but he's not historically unpopular for a president at the end of his 2nd term (I don't think at least). Seems like the last thing you want to do is mix up your message when running in a tight race.

    In my state, Kay Hagan ran a terrible race. Both sides were ridiculously negative the entire time. Kay Hagan at no time stuck up for herself or Obama, but rather only attacked her opponent. That's a dumb idea, and it didn't work.

    Maybe she shouldn't have won no matter what - but I doubt it. It was a close race, and she ran a ****ty campaign.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    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."<

    So youur response is to provide a link to an article that shows I am correct? Thanks but I knew I was correct when I said it the first time. (Here is a hint: Look at the title of your article)

    I didn't follow that one as close as turtle man (no relation) versus Alison Lightweight Grimes 30 minutes down I 75 but I thought the pundits said Hagan was going to win because she ran a localized campaign and avoided being tied to the albatross Obama

    This is the "Breaking News" section. Since this was pretty much known months ago, I don't see how this qualifies as "Breaking News"

    the election on the fourth, the story was the 6th, It clearly meets the rules for this section

    are you trying to derail this thread because you are mad that the Dems got their asses handed to them here or are you trying to be funny?
