David Plouffe, President Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, says at least 70 House and 15 Senate races are in play this year:
“There are a lot of competitive races out there. There’s going to be at least 70 House races in play, about 15 competitive Senate races, a couple dozen tough gubernatorial races,” he said in a video to supporters of Organizing for America, the president’s political arm.
Plouffe painted a picture of a dire electoral landscape in which, if Democrats were to lose the majority of those races, their losses would be massive.
Let’s hope so.
