We yelled, screamed, commented on their posts, emailed, wrote our own blog posts, called, flailed our arms about, then yelled and screamed some more. We still failed to get their attention until the very last minute.
Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post gives his first look at the top ten most vulnerable House races for 2008. We might need to go leave comments on his blog post at WaPo, but it won't be to yell or scream.
According to Cillizza in his typical Friday "The Line" post:
North Carolina's 8th District (R): For several cycles, Democrats spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to unseat Rep. Robin Hayes (R). Who would have thought that Larry Kissell (D), who was almost entirely ignored by national Democrats, would come within 329 votes of ousting the incumbent? Kissell conceded the race to Hayes earlier this week but immediately announced that he will run again in 2008. While Kissell will surely have more money this time around (he raised $450,000 for the 2006 race), Hayes will also be paying much closer attention. The central North Carolina district has a Republican lean; Bush won here by nine points in 2004.
While I've posted his entire commentary on the race we will all be working to win, he has 9 others listed. Please go visit, read and leave him some love in the comments. I don't always agree with Cillizza, but he needs to know when he gets it right.
