Politics Not as Bad as Santorum
posted by October 18 at 16:57 PMon
Here’s what conservative TV head Robert Novak has to say about Mike McGavick’s chances: “His polls look more promising than Santorum’s” … And, well, that’s about it. (Santourm is at 40%).
The quest of former Safeco CEO Mike McGavick (R) to unseat Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) also appears to have floundered, even though his polls look more promising than Santorum’s.
And Novak’s analysis of all the Democratic Senate seats that are in play?
Likely Democratic Retention
1. Michigan (Stabenow)
2. Minnesota (Open [Dayton])
3. Nebraska (Nelson)
4. Vermont (Open [Jeffords])
5. Washington (Cantwell)
6. West Virginia (Byrd)
Likely Republican Takeover
1. Maryland (Open [Sarbanes])
2. New Jersey (Menendez)
Oh, and what Novak doesn’t tell you about the Jeffords’s seat…It’s not going to a Democrat. It’s going to a Democratic Socialist.
