The Expand the Map! ActBlue page still needs $73 for Larry LaRocco and $88 for Rick Noriega to get both over the $500 target. Please contribute a few bucks toward that if you can!
Tennessee: Yesterday, I reported that Nashville attorney Kevin Doherty told me that he hopes to have a decision on a 2008 Senate bid "within a week or two." In what direction is he leaning? Well, I don't think most Nashville attorneys pen op-eds about international diplomacy with Pakistan, if that is any indication.
Minnesota: How many buzzwords, cliches, and falsehoods can Norm Coleman cram into one interview? The answer: quite a lot.
Massachusetts: Failed Congressional candidate Jim Ogonowski is considering joining the 2008 Republican Senate primary for the chance to take on Senator John Kerry. Republican Jeff Beatty is already running. Ogonowski lost 51-45 three months ago in a special election against a candidate that many accounts suggested ran a very mediocre campaign in one of Massachusetts' more conservative districts. How Ogonowski thinks he could fare better statewide against the Kerry machine, your guess is as good as mine.
