No's and Maybe's

Some Tuesday afternoon news:

  • South Dakota: In some very reassuring news, "Sen. Tim Johnson's condition has been upgraded from critical to fair."

  • Tennessee: While officially trying to minimize speculation about his 2008 plans, Harold Ford Jr. will maintain a high profile in Tennessee in the near future as a special volunteer to Governor Phil Bredesen. Is this another sign that Ford is planning a 2008 challenge to Republican Lamar Alexander?

  • New Jersey: The U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, Republican Christopher Christie, while rumored to be considering a 2008 challenge to Frank Lautenberg, has effectively taken his name out of consideration.

  • Chris Bowers at MyDD looks at the implications of Senator Schumer's recent statement on Democratic incumbents and what it means for the 2008 Presidential race, MA and NJ Congresspeople, and Tim Johnson.
