National Democrats don't think they can save Chet Edwards
It's time for triage among the national campaign committees. Having reserved millions of dollars in many districts, they are now dumping the ones that aren't winnable. CQ:
Three weeks before Election Day the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is getting ruthless with its independent expenditure decisions.
Other places where Republicans noted ad reductions Tuesday were the open-seat race in Arkansas' 1st district, Colorado's 4th district (Rep. Betsy Markey), Iowa's 3rd district (Rep. Leonard Boswell), South Dakota's at-large (Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin), Texas' 17th district (Rep. Chet Edwards) and the Phoenix market that covers both Arizona's 1st and 5th districts. Those districts are held by Democratic Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick and Harry Mitchell.
