Democrats Win The First Battle of the 2006 Elections: Candidate Recruitment

Celia Cohen, ever the diplomat, buried the lead and in her recent story.

Both parties are suffering in their efforts from a dearth of legislative candidates. Almost all of the 11 senators up for election are unopposed, and nearly half of the candidates in the 41 representative districts are, too.

Psst...Celia, 72% of the unopposed legislative candidates in races for State Rep. are Democrats.

The fact is Democrats trounced Republicans in this important phase of the election. (Either that or Republicans simply could not find people willing to lower themselves to sign up with Bush/Castle/Crossan style governance.)

Here are the raw numbers as of today:

Unopposed Democrats: 18

Unopposed Republicans: 7

Now I happen to think that ANY unopposed candidate on the ballot is a miscarriage of democracy, but this shows that the Democrats are keeping up their end of the bargain. And if anyone thinks that the state GOP is well run - these figures should give them pause.

Comments:
'Cause it's so much easier to recruit Republicans than Democrats...
 
I'm not sure what you're getting at.
 
Trying to get Republicans to run against incumbents in heavily Democratic NCCo districts is quite difficult.
