with Dodd yes he was damaged and any other Dem in CT will probably (but not definitely) keep the seat. however in CO gov, MI gov and ND Senate this only solidifies GOP opportunities.
Mebbe a mixed bag in CT. But if the retirement conveyor belt continues, I think it’s generally good news for Conservatives, as you point out DM1.
it bears watching
i truly hope that this opens the floodgates and TONS of Dems begin to bolt leaving the Dems scrambling for candidates
