A view from the trenches

I just received an e-mail from a buddy that left DC last week to go work for Democrats in Arizona. Here is his view from the trenches...
50 Congressional seats will NOT happen. A lot of Republicans are hyping up the numbers that they think Dems will by so that it can be seen as a failure when we don't achieve that number. Ann Coulter went on TV yesterday and said that anything less than a 60-70 seat gain by Democrats is a complete and utter failure. OK, she's saying this because she knows that attaining those numbers are impossible - there are only 54 competitive districts and even then there are only about 35 that are in play. My guess is a conservative one and I think that Dems will just barely pick-up the seats we need to win a majority. Say, 19 to 24 seats.

So sayeth one insider...
