Udall is in. He's been in since he said he was "reconsidering". It just isn't official yet. One of the three stars have alligned. Now we need Begich to run... Which may take awhile... But that's fine. And we need Cochran to retire and one of the two top tier candidates to get in.
There's some speculation about Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey running for NE-Sen.http://newnebraska.net/showDiary.do?diaryId=299That could be interesting.
that's hilarious... you have Mitch's telephone number up there...
Udall is officially in...http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/11/10/AR2007111001178.html?hpid=sec-nation
Once Udall formally announces his candidacy- NM moves into the Lean Democratic Takeover column along with VA,NH,and CO. We can now focus on winning MN,OR,ME,KY,NC
I agree with you, Neal... and I think you hit the right order of priority... but I think Alaska is should be a higher priority than North Carolina at this point... especially if Stevens runs... all of our stars have to align, similar to 2006, if we want a substantial wave...

Regarding Alaska- If we target Stevens early- he may drop out of the race like Domenici or Warner. Stevens is in his 80's and he does not want to leave office with an election loss. I would wait until late May or June - The filing Deadline in Alaska to get Begich in the race- We need to make sure that Stevens remains in the race through out the primary campaign- make sure Stevens wins the primary election.
