Might Get In, Might Get Out

Lots of tidbits for your Tuesday morning:

  • New Mexico: The Associated Press is reporting that Pete Domenici says that he is definitely running for re-election. Maybe he'll have a formal announcement in his pajamas.

  • Colorado: This Cortez Journal piece seems to cast doubt on whether Bob Schaffer will challenge Scott McInnis in a much-anticipated CO-GOP Senate primary. Say it ain't so! Run, Bobby Boy, run! Even if Schaffer exited the race, Bentley Rayburn would potentially get in to represent the super-far-right in Colorado and challenge McInnis in a primary (and pull him further to the right), but I don't think it would be quite the same.

  • Minnesota: The Star Tribune looks at who else might join a Democratic Senate primary, along with attorney Mike Ciresi and commentator Al Franken. The list is heavy on state legislators, with state representatives Joe Atkins and Aaron Peterson the loudest voices.

  • Georgia: Vernon Jones is preparing fundraisers as he ponders whether or not to enter the Senate race.

  • South Carolina: Lindsey Graham goes to the movies and leaves with his foot in his mouth.

    I don't get the South Carolina entry. How does Lindsey Graham holding a General on the ground who oversaw detainee abuses accountable equate a "foot-in-the-mouth" moment? The article even says he stood by his remarks.

    It seems to me that you would have more ammunition against Senator Graham if he didn't hold the general accountable. Why are you criticizing him for doing the right thing? Or is anything a Republican does wrong?
