Wouldn't it be acknowledged that receiving a senatorial nomination is a more difficult task than a congressional nomination as you are competing against the entire state? That being said, if your state does not duplicate nominations and you have received a senatorial nomination only, you could be at a disadvantage initially. The senatorial slate would have the top candidates in the entire state and you would have to beat them out for the competitive nomination. Whereas, with a competitive slate on a congressional nomination you only have to beat out the top people from your congressional district. Am I looking at this correctly? I would think I would rather be the big fish in the small pond even though it seems more impressive to have the senatorial nom.
