Wednesday Night Round-Up

  • Following yesterday's estimation by Cook Political Report Senior Editor Jennifer Duffy "that Democrats will score a net gain of between three and six Senate seats next November," the new Evans-Novak Political Report offers the expectation that Democrats are poised to pick up four Senate seats.

  • New Mexico: Congressman Tom Udall confirms that Governor Bill Richardson told him that Richardson will definitely not run for Senate.

  • Alabama: Jeff Sessions holds a large 62-30 lead over State Senator Vivian Figures in recent Rasmussen Reports polling. This is unsurprising not only because of Alabama's Republican bent but also because of Figures' campaign's relative (and troubling) silence. It leaves us wondering what could have been with a Ron Sparks for Senate campaign.

  • Louisiana: Bummer. Prostitute-lovin' David Vitter will be able to weasel out of testifying in the DC Madam trial. This will continue his streak of honestly answering zero questions in public about his scandal since his pseudo-press conference.

  • What's the difference between Mitt Romney and a used car salesman? Yeah, I don't know either. Man, those stunned reactions look awfully over-rehearsed.
