6. Nancy's support
Whoever you are,

First, Mark Brewer gave personally to Nancy's campaign. Second, I think how it works, the candidates have to earn their support. It's not just given to them because they're the nominee. Nancy has never been elected to public office before. Her first run at anything, she runs for the U.S. Senate and garners just 1.2% of the vote. I think you'd agree, not a good start.

I have already addressed the NWPC endorsement, which I'm not at all impressed with. It's a women's organization endorsing a woman. There are no criteria on their web site for how they choose which candidates they endorse. Apparently all you need to receive their endorsement is female genitalia. The endorsement that might have meant something is EMILY's list, which is an endorsement Nancy did not receive last time and will probably not get this time.

Usually inexperienced candidates do not fare well in politics. The ones that do best are people that have served in elected office previously and have trained in the minor leagues and eventually jump to the bigs, so to speak. Gary Peters has done exactly that.

Gary's support is partly a result of polling that's been done and the results have been very positive. Did Nancy do any polling to support her run? I worked on another campaign last time that was running against Nancy and we did do polling and the candidate graciously gave the polling information to Nancy when he dropped out. To my knowledge Nancy never did any polling of her own.

Let's say Nancy did, by some miracle get the nomination, do you think after she's been running around criticizing the party at the state and national level, they would turn around and support her candidacy financially? Should she even accept their money on principle, again, since she's been running around criticizing their lack of support for her in '06? I would think if she had any conviction she'd turn down their money if offered.
