Dyer spinning her wheels in SC-3

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

There is something interesting to watching candidates with absolutely no chance of winning. It’s a little sad, actually, especially when it’s a major-party candidate.

For this cycle, Democrat Jane Dyer is running against Third District Congressman Gresham Barrett, and has no chance. Smaller than none. For instance:

Barrett – $680,476.96
Dyer – $12,392.78 (with a $4,000 debt)

Money may not be everything, but if you’re going to unseat a popular Republican legislator in a conservative district, you’re going to have to do better than that.

It’s not like she’s not trying. There’s the biography:

Throughout her career as a pilot, and while she was raising a family, Jane made the time to serve as a leader in her community. Jane served her church as a leader in ministry for children, youth, and young adults, and finally serving as a deacon. Jane has coached youth basketball and soccer, and supports charities and community service projects like Habitat for Humanity and Miracle Hill Ministries. Jane and John are also proud to sponsor a child from Honduras named Angel through Compassion International.

There’s also the DailyKos diary, the ActBlue donations and a serviceable Web site. She’s pulling out the new media stops. All to lose by 20 points.
