Kennedy Closing?

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Gary Miller thinks so.  In part because of a new ad, the dynamics of the race have begun to shift in Kennedy´s favor.  He remains well behind in independent polls, but apparently has closed the gap in the internals.  At one point earlier in the cycle, this looked like the GOP´s best bet for a […]

Kennedy Hammers Klobuchar in New Ad

Monday, October 2nd, 2006

“The best way to look at someone is to see what they´ve done in the past,” so says Amy Klobuchar in Rep.

Far Out Friday, Minnesota Edition

Friday, August 18th, 2006

If it is true that you can judge a woman by the friends she keeps - and given Amy Klobuchar’s well documented aversion to talking about important issues, what choice to Minnesotan’s have? - Amy Klobuchar simply does not seem the right fit for the state in which she is running.  First there is EMILY’s […]

Friday, May 26th, 2006

First Ringer over at KvM has the story.  Ford Bell has decided that he will skip the DFL Convention next month and instead challenge Amy Klobuchar in a September 12 primary.  What this means is that Klobuchar will have to run left well into September rather than changing her tune in June.  While this is […]

Kennedy Leads Klobuchar Handily

Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

Andy Aplikowski at KvM has the numbers.  Kennedy’s strong fundraising underscores the national importance of this race.  While the John Morrison scandal has essentially blown any chance the Democrats had of breaking even in the Senate, Republicans are set to lose seats in Pennsylvania and possibly Missouri, Ohio, and Rhode Island.  For now, the Minnesota seat […]
