Keeping a close eye on developments in the 2008 U.S. Senate races
Friday, March 09, 2007
Looking forward to the weekend?
Kentucky: Kos has Schumer and Reid taking it to "Ditch" Mitch McConnell for siding with Bush on Iraq over the will of his constituents. (The Guru also offered some thoughts on this a couple weeks back.) Maine: Turn Maine Blue has the CATO Institute of all places taking it to Susan Collins for siding with the Bush administration over the will of her constituents on Real ID. Siding with Bush over their own constituents? That's what those McConnell Republicans do. New Hampshire: The Democratic primary field continues to narrow as State Senator David Gottesman confirmed yesterday that "he will not be a candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2008" so reports the Nashua Telegraph. While a couple other state senators are reportedly considering the race, the primary is shaping up to be between Portsmouth Mayor Steve Marchand and Activist Katrina Swett, with professor/former astronaut/retired Air Force Reserve Major Jay Buckey considering entry. With Sununu's approval sinking and his continued equivocation on Iraq, I like our chances for a New Hampshire pick-up.
