Liberal blog: Shea-Porter among 2010’s “biggest losers”
The liberal blog Swing State Project has categorized former Democratic Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (N.H.-01) as one of 2010’s “biggest losers.”
The blogger “went through the many losing Democratic candidates of 2010 and compared their losing margins to Obama’s 2008 margins” to determine which candidates might have the best chance to mount a comeback in 2012.
Shea-Porter’s chances? Not good. Of the 50 Democrats represented in the analysis, Shea-Porter finished 45th with a -18. “Shea Porter was never the best fit for this district,” they write.
Nevertheless, Shea-Porter is all but certain to seek her old seat in Congress again next year.
