NOM invested in two of today's primary candidates; long-shots in NJ & CA

by Jeremy Hooper

--Jeff Bell, a man who has actually lived in Virginia for the past three decades, moved himself to New Jersey in hopes of becoming the Republican nominee to challenge Cory Booker for the U.S. Senate seat the intensely popular Democrat currently holds.

--Kirk Jorgensen, a conservative Republican, is hoping to beat back openly gay frontrunner Carl DeMaio in order to grab the Republican nomination for a congressional seat out of California's 52nd district.

These are NOM's two big hopes in today's primary elections. The organization has already reported $12,000 in expenditures in these two long-shot races:

If polling is to be believed, NOM is going to suffer two more defeats tonight. But they should be used to that by now, right?

The bigger question: why the hell do NOM donors keep trusting this organization's judgment? I mean, I'd be the last person to stop NOM and its supporters from pissing away cash reserves on pie-in-the-sky races. However, if I were invested in history's wrong side, I'd probably be a little ticked at the national group that seems to view the Icarus myth as a guide rather than a warning.
