Thursday Night Round-Up

  • Minnesota: Minnesota Monitor debunks rhetoric over where Norm Coleman's campaign funds are coming from. (HT: MNCR)

  • Nebraska: The Nebraska Democratic Party reports on polling they've done that finds "Hagel earns a net negative job performance score statewide with 42 percent of voters saying he is doing an excellent-to-good job, while a majority, 50 percent, says fair-to-poor." (HT: DaveSund)

  • Colorado: MyDD's Singer looks at the candidate downgrade by the CO-GOP from Scott McInnis to Bob Schaffer.

  • New Jersey: CQPolitics looks at the crop of possible NJ-GOP challengers to incumbent Democratic Senator Frank Lautenberg and offers this summation:

    If New Jersey Republicans are to stage a serious challenge next year to Democratic Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, it appears at least at this early juncture in the campaign cycle that they will have to do it without a big-name candidate.
  • Georgia: "Conservative Democrat" Vernon Jones is having a very difficult time getting his fundraising operation off the ground in his challenge to "Shameless" Saxby Chambliss.

    It didn't say the specific day Jones announced. Either way he had 1/3 of the time Chambliss did or less depending on what day he announced.

    Vernon Jones announced his candidacy in early April. But even still, he's been considering a bid for a while, and $17K is simply uncompetitive, even moreso when put up against Chambliss's $2.3 million.

    Its not as if there wasn't reason enough to write this race off before, but if no other Democrat gets into the race, then this will be considered a "pass" by Democrats.
