There are a lot of current members of the House of Representatives that have a lot of trouble getting attention from the national media. With 435 people serving in the House, the national media simply won't be giving much airtime to individual members unless they have an important message or play a crucial role in the House leadership. Since we're 7 months out from the Democratic primary in Virginia's 1st Congressional District (and a year out from the general), I think it's safe to say that Krystal Ball falls into the category of having an important message to discuss.
During her appearance on MSNBC yesterday, Krystal talked about standing up for what is right and using that as a platform instead of simply taking a position based upon what the polls are saying. She went on to also touch on topics such as how we need to work on policy that would actually create jobs all across the country, providing students with a good education, and how there is a desire to have some ethical leaders in Washington.
