    I think MI-06, PA-06, and PA-08 have some pretty obvious LaTourette's Syndrome going on there. FL-13 does too, but that may owe more to Rep. Bill Young being so deeply entrenched than to the district simply being far more Republican at the local level than the presidential toplines would suggest. Ditto WA-08 and IA-03.

    Our candidates in CO-06, NY-19, NV-03, and to a lesser extent CA-10 weren't as great as we might have hoped. Romanoff could probably beat Rep. Coffman in 2014; Erin Bilbray could likely beat Rep. Joe Heck; not sure about our bench in the other two.

    •  I think what you note about FL-13 (0+ / 0-)

      is one of the primary identifying features of a Latourette-affected district.  Almost all of them are ancestrally Republican districts.

      strong candidate himself, though.  (At least, he has a great "profile" and a moderate voting record as these things go.)  I don't know about Heck.
