Funny thing. Look at Missouri.
Six rural districts safe for Republicans, two inner city districts (St. Louis and Kansas City) safe for Democrats.
Gee, wonder why?
Here we go again.
The MN sixth district is not Safe-Republican. This is Michele Bachmann's seat. She is not running in 2014. In 2008 she won 46.4% to 43.4% and likely would have lost if Independence candidate had not run (he got 8%) In 2012 after spending $23M she won by a 50.5% to 49.3% margin to an unknown Dem who had spent only $2.3M. This was after the congressional district lines were redrawn in her favor in 2010. This same guy, Jim Graves announced he was running again right after he lost in 2012, and funny, Bachmann decided not to run again, the working theory is that she knew she would lose. Bachmann has about $2M in her campaign war chest.
Depending on who the Republicans run in this district I would rate it Toss Up to Leans R. I agree with the assessments in the other districts.
In Indiana the only seats likely to go to the Democrats are Indianapolis city and the Calumet or Gary. Both of those areas are now outside the reach of the GOP.
