Cash-on-Hand Competitiveness: Hodes at #5

DavidNYC has put up a great measure over at Swing State Project. He's taken the cash-on-hand numbers for CQ's top 50 House challengers and "divided challenger CoH by incumbent CoH to arrive at a "competitiveness" percentage."

Rather fabulously for us, Paul Hodes is fifth on the list, with 98%. He joins 8 other Democratic challengers in the top 10 of this list.

It's a really interesting list and worth looking at the whole thing - this seems like a valuable measure that should be taken into wide consideration.

Paul Hodes is going to win this thing, and at the rate it's going, few people will notice until right before the end.

New London, Lebanon, Keene, Hanover, all growing in population, all leaning more to the left. The tide is turning.

That's the way I prefer it. You get too much attention to soon and people start gunning for you. Some people were pissed, for example, that the DCCC didn't parachute in on behalf of Paul Hackett until very late in the game. But there was no other way to do it. Had we spooked the NRCC too early, we never would have gotten as close as we did.

Bass won't know what hit him.
