See A Pattern?

Here is a list of the 67 Conservative candidates that participated in the Conservative in an out scheme. A clear pattern of funneling money into uncompetitive ridings, or very safe seats, and then returning it for what is assumed battleground "regions". The only exception is Quebec, but important to remember the Conservatives had little organization in that province at the time, operating with scant resources, which meant the "max" was rarely meant:

James made this comment on his blog:

I'm gonna bet, in Ontario, those on the list finished third in their ridings.

Not far off James ;)

What I see here, with VERY few exceptions, the Conservatives topped off ridings that weren't in play, in order to use that money where it could make a difference. The above supports the idea that this extra money was very important for Conservative fortunes, spent in targeted regions, it could very well have made a difference, as suggested by both the Liberals and NDP.

Nothing in Alberta? I figure that would be the "prime" location to have "safe" Tory ridings where they could, figuratively, "Run a dog for MP" and still win, thus allowing them to send money to ""battleground ridings""

Such grassroot support in Alberta, which means they were maxed out, without even trying.
