Just because they aren't "primaried"doesn't mean they will win. As long as there is a Dem challenger

we have a chance to beat them, even Lindsay Graham. As long as the Democrats put up a challenger in every Senate race, there is a chance that decent, democracy-loving, and patriotic voters will come out and vote against the unpatriotic, craven Trump suckers. But we must put up decent, fearless challengers in every case. The challengers must tell the voters the true story of what this Trump administration stands for, what it has done and what their GOP Senators have allowed to happen in plain sight. Play those videos snips of those GOP Senators saying one thing before 2016 and against Obama and Clinton and showing what they are saying now and how dishonest they are. Show how in bowing to their craven desire to win has made them equally as guilty as Trump in destroying our country, its values, its international reputation, and it endangerment of our future on many levels.

Lindsay Graham is the perfect example of the GOP selling out its soul and our country to support a man he cares about neither.

I say FIGHT everyone of them on their own turf. Plan more and more Town Halls in those blood red areas and put the onus on the voters to save the country in the face of the fascist regime now in place and supported by their souless Senators.

1. Howard Dean called it the 50-state strategy, and it worked in 2006.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifty-state_strategy

Howard Dean pursued an explicit "fifty-state strategy" as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, putting resources into building a Democratic Party presence even where Democrats had been thought unlikely to win federal positions, in hopes that getting Democrats elected to local and state positions, and increasing awareness of Democrats in previously conceded areas, would result in growing successes in future elections. Democrats who supported the strategy have said that abandoning red states as lost causes only allowed the Republican Party to grow even stronger in areas where it was unchallenged, resulting in lopsided losses for Democrats in even more races.[2]

2. I remember having to vote for Republicans in some races because there were no "D" running.

 

15-20 yrs ago. Its not like that now.
Someone SHOULD run even if its a long shot. Put your message out there.
