Keeping a close eye on developments in the 2008 U.S. Senate races
Thursday, March 15, 2007
Lots of late-night reading for you:
AP reports: Senate GOP turns back Iraq pullout plan. Among the Senators voting against a "joint resolution to revise United States policy on Iraq": Lamar Alexander (R-TN), Norm Coleman (R-MN), Susan Collins (R-ME), John Cornyn (R-TX), Liddy Dole (R-NC), Pete Domenici (R-NM), Chuck Hagel (R-NE), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Mitch McConnell (R-KY), John Sununu (R-NH), and John Warner (R-VA). I'm sure they'd appreciate it if you didn't mention it to their constituents. New Hampshire: Blue Hampshire illustrates how out of step Sprintin' John Sununu is with the voters of the Granite State on environmental issues. Tennessee: Political Insider notes that Harold Ford's contract with Fox News has an out clause should he run for Senate in 2008. Why would he need that? Hmmmmm... Nebraska: Jon Bruning really can't control himself. Chuck Hagel offers his non-announcement and Bruning establishes an exploratory committee, should Hagel eventually step aside. Is it an indication that Bruning has inside info that Hagel will retire, or does he really just lack restraint? Bluegrass Report has Kentucky GOP Senators and Tennessee GOP Senators getting into a bit of a tiff.
