Happy Presidents Day:
Kentucky: An opening for a challenge to the Senate's GOP Leader Mitch McConnell? A majority of Kentuckians want McConnell to oppose the Bush Iraq surge, by a margin of 52-40. Will McConnell represent his constituents? It doesn't look like it. It looks like McConnell is more loyal to Bush-Cheney-Rove than he is to his own constituents. New Hampshire: Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand takes Sprintin' John Sununu to task on Sununu's Iraq obstructionism, courtesy of Blue Hampshire. Minnesota: Over the last few days, Minnesota Campaign Report has offered a few terrific posts including: an interview with Senate candidate Al Franken, Norm Coleman's parroting of Bush-Rove talking points, and Nobel Prize-winning chemist Peter Agre considering a Senate bid. Michigan: WILX has an interview with Senator Carl Levin touching on Iraq, American manufacturing, and political campaigns.
