You're the strategy director for the CPA (Campaign for Primary Accountability, the SuperPAC that exists to primary incumbents of both parties) and you want to run a better strategy for this cycle, by focusing on just 5 races of each party. What 5 Repubican and 5 Democratic house members do you decide to target? (i.e. not necessarily the ones you personally want to target, the ones where you think a primary challenge would be most successful with outside funding.)
*To make things easier, disregard whether a seat is considered safe in the general election.
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
