Friday Evening Round-Up

  • I know I've been begging a lot, but both Larry LaRocco and Rick Noriega are within just $50 of an even $500. Let's get them both to $500 this weekend - only $50 more each! And, while we're at it, Andrew Rice is only $109 from an even $2,000. If we can drum up the $198 needed to get both LaRocco and Noriega to $500 and Rice to $2,000, I promise I won't beg again... for a little while at least.

  • South Carolina: Did Lindsey Graham roll over on the Michael Mukasey for Attorney General nomination in order to score a fundraiser with George W. Bush?

  • Kentucky: Democrats will go after Mitch McConnell in Kentucy, hard. And with the KY-GOP about to be dealt a sharp rebuke next week, the KY-Dems will have the momentum.

  • South Dakota: Could ultraconservative Gov. Mike Rounds be planning a Senate bid after all? Well, he did have a meeting at NRSC HQ.

  • New Mexico: WaPo's Cillizza offers further thoughts on Congressman Tom Udall considering a Senate bid. Says Cillizza, "there is little doubt in the Washington political world that he will be a candidate." That's reassuring. Now, we just need to hear from the Congressman. While you're thinking about it, help out the Draft Udall movement.

  • Maine: Kudos to the Maine College Democrats who put out a phenomenal campaign video laying out how we all benefit from the change from Susan Collins to Tom Allen (HT: AmericaBlog):

    Bush hasn't had problems attending fundraisers of people who don't support his policies before. Not surprising though that Think Progress would assume something bad is happening with no evidence though.

    The last SUSA data I can find for SD is a year old, and it has both Johnson and Rounds sitting at exactly 70% approval. Does anyone know of more recent data for the two we can compare? My wild guess would be Johnson can beat Rounds but I find SD one of the most puzzling states in the Union (and this is from someone who has always lived on the prairies) -- a reliably Republican landslide at the Presidential level, with a recent history of cliff-hanger Senate contests, and Herseth apparently sitting quite comfortably in her House seat.
