Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

Not content with their failure to recruit their two strongest possible candidates to face off with former Gov. Mike Johanns, Nebraska Democrats decided on Tuesday to nominate darling of the left-wing blogosphere Scott Kleeb rather than DSCC Chairman Chuck Schumer recruit businessman and former Republican Tony Raimondo. In fairness, Kleeb overperformed in Nebraska’s solidly […]

Five polls in three states that were considered second or third-tier pick-up opportunities for Democrats suggest that the bottom may be falling out from under us.
