Jon Kyl, Lamar Alexander, and possibly Jim DeMint are all interested in Trent Lott's soon-to-be-vacant leadership post. Compound this with the possibility that Mitch McConnell loses in 2008, and the Senate GOP could even further resemble a chicken with its head cut off.
Mississippi: Yup, expect a controversy over the scheduling of the special election to replace Trent Lott as Republican Haley Barbour is already attempting to fudge Mississippi election law.
Kentucky: An interview with possible Senate candidate Lt. Col. Andrew Horne is up on BlueGrassRoots, and it concludes with the intimation that he would defer to state Auditor Crit Luallen if she ran for Senate and that he would run if Luallen doesn't.
Oklahoma: The usually very conservative Oklahoman offers a terrific profile of State Senator Andrew Rice. Definitely worth a read. Better news is, sources tell me, that a fundraiser with Andrew Rice is in the works featuring Senators Jon Tester and Blanche Lincoln, indicating that national Democrats are committed to providing the resources necessary to make Oklahoma as competitive as possible. A very good sign. Help bolster the good news by contributing to Rice's campaign to oust Jim "In Denial" Inhofe.
Nebraska: The Draft Kleeb pledge drive is making very impressive headway early on.
South Carolina: Lindsey Graham says: "I think history will judge the surge as probably the most successful counterinsurgency military operation in history." Then I guess we can expect that political reconciliation in Iraq to be right around the corner, huh?
Texas: John Cornyn loves suckling at that corporate teat.
Larry Flynt says that we can expect another Senate Republican sex scandal in the near future. We'll keep a look-out.
Ron Paul has secured the most unique endorsement of the Presidential race so far.
