Kirkpatrick was never going to beat McCain. She's about as overrated as Murphy and Strickland.
Who ever rated Murphy high enough to be considered overrated?
Ironically, TNVol, who repeatedly rated Murphy vs. CLC, Murphy vs. DeSantis, and Murphy vs. Jolly Safe D.
CLC, DeSantis, and Jolly would have been fighting a bitter three-way primary, and the winner would come out damaged and short on cash, giving Murphy the advantage (by mid-June, it became clear Murphy would win his primary).

Yeah, but to pretend that Murphy could literally refrain from campaigning and still win (Which is what Safe D is supposed to mean) is just stupid.

So if Rob Portman stops campaigning, he'll lose?

I don't think there are any Congress members who simply 'not campaign' because they have a safe seat.  And frankly if you're someone who doesn't, you're probably a shtty representative for your constituents in general.

Mark Warner and Bob Casey were supposed to be the safest incumbents in their last elections.  Lee Terry was supposed to be safe in his district.  When they took that attitude, they either lost or came reasonably close to losing.
