This is a great Tweet making an excellent point. If you're at 1 or 2 at this point, THINK. You may be raising your profile is about it. Perhaps hang on through the first or second debate and it you ain't at 5-10 .. STOP WASTING YOUR MONEY and decide whether you want Mitch McTurtle naming judges that'll be around for the next 50 years.

I agree. The Democrats don't need twenty something presidential candidates just to bring up pet policy issues during the campaign. The lower polling candidates have probably already squeezed all of the additional name recognition out of their presidential bids as they can, so they might as well seek an office that they actually stand a chance of winning.

Those are national polling numbers, how do they think they translate to a state election?

That makes no sense.
Oh please Spooky - Beto came within 2 points of beating Goober Cruz in Texas and Abrams even less losing to Crooked Brian Kemp in Georgia.

And you think Hickenlooper who's been governor in CO for 8 years couldn't win a Senate race?

Take the dunce cap off and put on your THINKING cap please

Abrams says she's not interested in the Senate. This disappoints me. She could EASILY win.
