Monday Night Rundown
Idaho: It looks like Democratic former Congressman Larry LaRocco will be getting in the race to challenge the Republican nominee for Senate in 2008, be it Larry Craig or whoever else might win the primary, with Craig's re-election bid status in question. Quick bio on LaRocco: elected to Congress in 1990, but lost his seat in the '94 GOP tidal wave; was the Democrats' 2006 nominee for Lt. Gov. of Idaho. Sources say a formal announcement should come by mid-April.
Colorado: It looks like conservative wild card radio talk show host Dan Caplis might not be so serious about entering the GOP Senate primary scrum, so suggests Colorado Confidential. While the CO-GOP is losing candidates as fast as it gained potential competitors, the hope for a nasty Schaffer-Suthers primary still lingers.
Think Progress catches several Republicans, including 2008 Senators Norm Coleman, Susan Collins, Pete Domenici, Mitch McConnell, Pat Roberts, Ted Stevens, and John Warner, exhibiting rather blatant hypocrisy regarding legislative pork.

Senate 2008 Guru's statistical trend of the day, courtesy of kos:
March 2007Between March 2005 and March 2007, the Dems dipped from 38.7 to 38.1, that 0.6 translating to 1.5% of the Democratic-identifying population lost. During the same period, Republicans plummeted from 37.2 to 31.5, that 5.7 translating to a whopping 15.3% of the GOP-identifying population lost. There is no way to spin this, no alternate perspective - this is just bad for the Republicans.
