The DCCC has a list of targets for 2008, and Thad is not on the list. It appears that national Democrats are writing this race off. They seem content to wait for 2012, when there will be a new, more favorable Eleveth District. Well, I guess we'll have to do this on our own. But I still see a path to victory for the Democrats in November.
We were never going to outspend McCotter, even if the DCCC was supporting us. We aren't going to win as the default candidate. It will take a truly people powered campaign. The fate of this campaign lies in the hands of the people. Let's take it away from the lobbyists this fall.
