The Importance of State Legislative Races

Glenn Thrush: "Barack Obama has spent well over $1 billion on his political campaigns, but it's the $20 million to $30 million Democrats didn't shell out three years ago that is costing the White House as he slogs through the first six months of his second term. The GOP's wildly successful, low-key and stunningly cheap campaign to seize state capitals in 2010 has come back to haunt Obama and his fellow Democrats. It's now clear that the party's loss of 20 state legislative chambers and critical Midwestern governorships represents an ongoing threat every bit as dangerous as the more publicized Republican takeback of the House that same year."
