Challenge every seat
After three elections without a Democratic challenger, Republican Rep. Jerry Moran faces one in the sprawling and GOP-dominated 1st Congressional District.I'm a firm believer in the netroots-backed strategy of challenging every seat, no matter how strong the incumbent. No challenge is foolish. Running on ethanol is an odd choice, though pandering to the local economy is never a bad strategy.

“I’m not 100 percent Democrat,” he told The Hutchinson News after launching his campaign.
We'll see what develops.
