DSCC On the Ball
May fundraising numbers are out and the DSCC once again trumped the NRSC in May. The DSCC took in $4.36 million compared to the NRSC's $3.32 million. At the end of May, the DSCC's cash on hand stood at over $14.25 million (with $5M in debt carried over from '06) compared to the NRSC's $4.26 million. The Guru continues to wonder what John Ensign does all day.
New Hampshire & Nebraska: Stu Rothenberg is reporting that evidence is pointing toward former Governor Jeanne Shaheen entering the New Hampshire Senate race and former Senator Bob Kerrey entering the Nebraska Senate race. Rothenberg is reporting only on indications, not concrete declarations, but they are good signs nonetheless that enhance Democratic chances for pick-ups in both states.
Kentucky: The Payback Project must be spooking Mitch McConnell because, despite indicating earlier support for immigration reform, McConnell is now backpedalling from the legislation. McConnell's giant campaign warchest isn't enough to buy him a spine.
