Point taken, but if you remember she out polled Conlon on the republican line but lost it to Cook. I don't believe his majority on the Democratic line was much different than her majority over Conlon on the Republican line.
She defeated Cook, the republican nominee while running on a minor party line when she ran for D.A. There also were some people who were happy with her as District Attorney and may have decided they were good with her staying in that position so they moved their support to Conlon.
I think either of them were capable of defeating Cook if it was a one on one race.
