"LANCASTER, Pa. — It’s referred to in unguarded moments as the We-Can-Actually-Win-This List.
'If not this year, when? If it doesn’t get done this year, it doesn’t get done,' says Christina Hartman, a Democrat running in Pennsylvania Dutch Country for the open seat vacated by retiring GOP Rep. Joe Pitts.
Hartman is running for a seat that has been represented by a Republican for generations. Pitts was elected in 1996. He succeeded Republican Robert S. Walker, who was elected in 1976. Walker succeeded Republican Edwin Eshleman, who was elected in 1966. Lancaster County has long been a bedrock for the GOP in the Keystone State.
But times change, and perhaps no more so than here, where Hartman’s race, a recent addition to the We-Can-Actually-Win-This List, represents the kind of reach her party needs to catch an electoral wave."
Unpredictable nature of the election raises party hopes

The Clinton Campaign desperately needs support from Bernie Sanders supporters. I haven’t received my Hillary stuff yet. I stuck a Hillary sticker over one of the Sanders buttons.
I’m not sure that the Hillary campaign site works well or securely. She didn’t do email well. Maybe there’s some carry over to the campaign? Sigh.
