    How would I check how competitive my district is?

    There are “easy” markers, such as large populations, affluent suburbs, conservative areas, proximity to academies or military bases. Think Northern Virginia, Westchester County, Denver, Texas, Georgia.

    But as many wise SAF veterans have said here: If only one candidate in your district has superior credentials to yours, then you should consider your district to be very, very competitive.

    Easiest way to know is simple numbers, impo. IE, in VA, the MoCs talk that is because each Sen. can have 750-1000 applicants for the SAs. If all of the MoCs talk than they spread the wealth. It is common in VA to get 1 and only 1 nom to only 1 SA. Now, if you look at a state like NC, you can get a nom from each MoC because they have fewer candidates requesting a nom.

    However, mid-cake has stated you should not worry about how competitive your district/state is, but instead be concerned about submitting the best package so you will be the most competitive.
