Senator Kennedy?

Posted by Mike on January 29, 2006

Mark Kennedy that is. The latest Rasmussen poll shows Republican Mark Kennedy trailing Democrat frontrunner Amy Klobuchar by one point, 43-42. Despite this deficit (within the margin of error), Kennedy is in a good position. Kennedy does not face any serious primary opposition. The Democrats, however, will be slugging it out in a primary. Moreover, the fact that 2006 is an off-year election in a light blue state will provide Kennedy with an additional boost. Lastly, Kennedy’s fundraising has been solid ever since Senator Coward decided not to run for re-election.

PREDICTION: Republican gain.
