1. It was very doable in the early race before the run-off with Handel

Ossoff, came so close, within 2 percentage points of winning that seat outright but our party apparatus didn't seem to grasp the importance of that earlier election and didn't get behind Ossoff then.

Seems if the Dems had poured all out effort into the earlier contest there would've have had to be a run-off against Handel where the repugs could pour all the millions of dark money and and all their dirty CrossCheck and hacking tricks into it.

Boy do we need someone in place nationally who is paying attention and who gets this stuff and is a step or two ahead of the repugs so opportunities like this don't slip through our fingers.

Like where is our strong, concerted and well publicized effort to combat repug cheating? We know they are going to do it. We've know since 2000 that they cheat in anyway they can and now with Citizens United and dark money they can cheat even worse yet our national organization has not come out strongly in doing something about it.


Bring back Howard Dean and his 50 states strategy or something. I'm so tired of always being the victim reacting to repug tricks instead of being proactive to combat their tricks.
