Friday Afternoon Round-Up
Alaska: Apparently Ted Stevens' own lawyer would categorize him as "pretty far up the creek." Good times.
Illinois: The Quad-City Times mentions that, in addition to political unknown Steve Sauerberg, 2006 GOP gubernatorial candidate Andy Martin may join a 2008 Republican Senate primary. Martin got just over 6,000 votes in the '06 GOP-Gov primary, or about eight-tenths of one percent. The article makes no mention of my favorite Republican Illinois Senate candidate, trucker Mike Psak.
Georgia: Strategic Vision has polling out on Spineless Saxby Chambliss against the Democrats currently running. Against all announced Democrats, Chambliss scores in the mid-to-high 50s with all Democrats running in the mid-to-high 20s. Not a big shock, unfortunately, though Chambliss' approval barely squeaks over the 50% mark. However, just to keep me wishing and hoping, Insider Advantage polls a hypothetical Chambliss rematch against war hero and former Senator Max Cleland. Chambliss edges Cleland 36-24, with a whopping 40% undecided. I've said it before, but not a day goes by where I don't hope that Cleland reconsiders and enter the 2008 Senate race.
