A word from Donna Dem

By our very own Donna Dem (@NoShock)

***

Is it just me or do others have this sense that Democrats in power don’t feel that they can make any inroads in the 2014 election? With Priorities USA PAC conceding this election in favor of 2016 it gives me the impression that they feel it would be a waste of money. I know that some of you attribute this to Hillary but she doesn’t have anything to do with the decisions of this PAC. In fact if she runs for President her campaign as I understand it cannot have any coordination with this PAC whatsoever.

So as I’ve stated, I don’t place the blame on her I place it on those making decisions regarding 2014. The general election of 2016 will take care of itself but this President needs to get a Congress more willing to work with him now. There are plenty of good to great candidates all over this country that could give Republicans a run for their money. From what I’ve seen of Clay Aiken, he is a good example of this. He’s what I call a good ole boy from the south and I probably won’t agree on every opinion he has but I’ll take the likes of him over any Republican from that district. There is no reason why we can’t register Dems like crazy in his district and push them to the polls on Election Day. It’s a winnable seat with the right candidate. We should be working our tails off to win everywhere like this. To decide that due to gerrymandering it is impossible to grow our numbers in the house and hold onto the senate is crazy talk to me. We increased our seats in both the House and the Senate in 2012 (two years after the gerrymandering took place) because we turned out the vote on Election Day.

So the question becomes how do we get all these supporters who love and adore and have pride in PBO but are not what is classified as “likely voters” for the mid-term elections to turnout in record numbers this year?

The answer in IMO is simple. We have to make this mid-term election about President Obama.
