Senate 2008 Guru: Following the Races

Keeping a close eye on developments in the 2008 U.S. Senate races

Saturday Rundown

  • Our condolences to the family, friends, and constituents of Congresswoman Julia Carson.

  • We're up to 8 contributions for Congressman Tom Allen. Can we get just 2 more this afternoon?

  • Republican Senators are totally cool with torture.

  • South Carolina: In case you didn't catch it in the link above, previously anti-torture Lindsey Graham is one of those Republican Senators who is now totally cool with torture.

  • Oregon: The Guru has heard rumors (yes, just rumors for now) that the Constitution Party candidate for Governor of Oregon in 2006, Mary Starrett, is considering a 2008 Senate bid. She got 3.6% in the OR-Gov race, so her entry could cost Gordon Smith two or three percent. I'll keep my ears open for developments here.

  • Idaho: The Spokesman-Review's blog Eye on Boise catches on to Republican Jim Risch's ranting paranoia.

  • Nebraska: Businessman Tony Raimondo will decide after the holidays whether or not to enter the 2008 Senate race.

  • Georgia: Tondee's Tavern has video up from a recent forum with the Democratic Senate candidates.

  • Time Magazine put racist George Macaca Allen on their panel to determine the Time Person of the Year.

  • The budget for government paper-shredding has gone up 600% since Bush-Cheney took office. I wonder why...

    We're only scratching the surfaces of this torture thing, Guru. Just wait until we have hearings on the tapes that the CIA destroyed (I can't wait to see Graham's position after the hearings)... what surprises me is that he is so far away on the torture issue from John McCain, the candidate he supports for President.
