3. It was important to beat Rozum I feel. This is the district in which I grew up


Rozum drew votes exclusively from Maffei. If you combine Maffei and Rozum's support then you get the same margin that Obama did in the district.

It was important for Rozum to lose badly so hopefully she won't run again in 2014. We don't want the Republicans getting sensible and nominating someone like Richard Hanna, do we? Do we?

Because Richard Hanna could have beaten Maffei in NY-24 this year, especially with Rozum in the race.

Maffei is a progressive. His voting record is progressive. His problem is that he's not a chummy people-person type like Obama. More likeable than Buerkle, but that's a low bar. Maffei needs to continue being left of center ot fend off a Green challenge. This seat is a D seat for the foreseeable future if Maffei doesn't screw up.
