I know you all love her and most people think she did a great job as the Chair of the NV Dems for the past year, but I got a REAL reason she is going to win.
I mean other than Zeke Says So. Which is a great reason.
In Louisanna on Saturday, what will be a highly discussed election took place. Short story: a Dem beat a Republican in a solid GOP district. He shouldn't have won, but he did.
It's pretty clear: the GOP is in Big Trouble selling there "Liberial, Tax and spend" routine. It is what they used last time, but certainly ain't gonna work up here again.
Also, although Derby is facing an uphill battle in funding, her opponant, Dean Heller, is considered the WORST Congressman in the Capitol bar none. On top of that, the Washoe Dems have registered voters to be within the 6,000 margin she lost by in 2006, and are growing it every day.
Zeke is Happy.
What is more the fight in CD3 is getting all the Press, so it looks like, for now, we can start counting the days till Dean can retire to what ever he was doing before he was screwing up Nevada Politics.
Here is some reading on the LA election.
"In LA-06, centered around Baton Rouge, state representative Don Cazayoux (D) defeated former state representative and local newspaper publisher Woody Jenkins (R) in a special election to fill the seat vacated by Richard Baker (R), who resigned from the House to become a lobbyist. Cazayou got 49% of the vote to Jenkins' 46% in a race with major national implications. LA-06 is a heavily Republican district with a PVI of R+7 that has been in Republican hands for 33 years. President Bush got 59% of the vote here in 2004.
Both the DCCC and NRCC advertised heavily here. The NRCC referred to Don Cazayoux (a Cajun name) as "Don Tax You" and claimed he is a "liberal," which is a big insult in rural Lousiana. They also tried to tie him to boogeyman Barack Obama and boogeywoman Nancy Pelosi. The whole nine yards. At this point, the Republicans assume Barack Obama will be the Democratic nominee and LA-06 was a field test of their November strategy to paint him as a big-government, high-tax, arugula-eating, orange-juice-drinking, Ivy League, out-of-touch liberal. Only it didn't work, even in a very conservative area. The next field test is scheduled for May 13, when Travis Childers (D) dukes it out with Greg Davis (R) in a runoff for Sen. Roger Wicker's old seat in MS-01. "
