Democratic Party Logistics-trying again

What happens if hundreds of local/state level candidates and dozens of people in Congress will have to go against the party's "standard bearer". I wanted to start a discussion on how these people would be supported by the national Democratic Party apparatus? Does the Party even have the means to run two parallel operations like this or will these candidates be left to their own devices without Party support?

1. I'm in the NJ 7th District

I will put my Congressman's sign, Bookers sign, our freeholder's sign, and our council candidates sign on my yard.

NJ is pretty faithful to the blue - but this district just flipped in 2018 after 40 years of a GOP House Rep.

Those signs will be on my yard - as I think the House and Senate are FAR more important than POTUS.

2. you can try to distance yourself from the nominee.

but the truth is that the nominee is also the leader of the Democratic party.

even if he or she hates democrats.

3. I'd stick to local if this concerns any politician

Although with the popularity of sanders it seems silly.
