You are (were) wrong for two reasons.

#1. No PAC gave money to boost a candidate because the clear opponent was not defined. So NOBODY got the boost that could have beaten Graham.

#2. Imagine a wall full of brands of bottles of ketchup. There's s Fred's Ketchup. Kool Ketchup. And Humdinger Ketchup. And in the middle of this wall you see Heinz Ketchup. Are you going to bother investigating the unknown alternatives that you have never heard of? No. There are simply too many of them. You will go with what you know. Heinz Ketchup.

But if there was ONE other ketchup and you had heard some good things about it you might consider it.

Swamping people with many decisions tends to overwhelm and make them go for the one they know. And in ths case it was Graham.
