2. I think that as of this afternoon that

there are 6 races that are too close to call. We hold narrow leads in all of those contests. If we win them all we will have a total pick up of 8.

3. Then our next step is to start digging for dirt on about twenty more of them

get them kicked out of congress and we get the house. I thought I had something on my local congressman, Sent info to CREW, they said they thought it was worth looking into but haven,t heard anything from them. However, as my dear old dad would say, "Hope Springs Eternal".

5. Not now -- need to wait until summer 2014.

By all means dig for dirt now, but make sure the stories break open only after the 2014 primaries. The districts are so gerrymandered now, if dirt gets dished too early it is easy to replace one Republican with another in primaries or special elections. But once the primaries are over, if dirt gets dished they have to suck it.
