Senate 2008 Guru: Following the Races

Keeping a close eye on developments in the 2008 U.S. Senate races

Sunday, September 30, 2007

Sunday Appeal (Only 400 Days Until Election Day '08)

Today is actually pretty quiet in terms of Senate race news and goingson. CNN profiles the role that the internet will play in Virginia's 2008 Senate race, referring frequently to the Macaca incident and YouTube. mcjoan sees Idaho's Larry Craig creating some rhetorical wiggle room not only to avoid resigning but possibly also to consider a re-election bid in 2008. And, NM FBIHOP's LP argues that Don Wiviott can take on Pajamas Pete Domenici in New Mexico, if Tom Udall or Bill Richardson don't jump into the Senate race after all.

But, more importantly, today is the last day of the third fundraising quarter of 2007. I know that I have been begging all weekend for readers of the Guru's blog to visit the new Expand the Map! ActBlue page and contribute a few bucks to Idaho's Larry LaRocco and Oklahoma's Andrew Rice. And, with today being the last day of the quarter, all dollars raised today will help these campaigns illustrate their viability and competitivity when they release their Q3 numbers.

So please consider making a contribution to either or both of these very deserving candidates. If you can contribute $100, that is awesome. If you can contribute $5, that is awesome! We're almost at 20 contributions for both, and I'd love to see us cross that mark. Thanks again for all of your generosity!
