Kerry in the West

Posted by DavidNYC

Ralph (of the semi-eponymous MakesMeRalph) takes a look at Kerry in the Western and Southwestern swing states. One reason to think we'll do better in this region than last time: Al Gore essentially wrote off much of the West in 2000. Kerry's given every indication (so far) that he plans to compete out there. (The recent Colorado ad buy is one sign.) Given Kerry's vastly superior financial situation (compared to Gore's), I really do think we can be competitive across a wide swatch of the country. Even if we don't win states like CO, just by showing up there, we force Bush to divert resources from places like Ohio.
