Rossi leading incumbent Democratic Governor Gregoire is also great news. We need to make sure he wins by a solid margin this time, so there isn't a repeat of 2004.
This is awesome! The prospect of McCain-Palin winning Washington is incredible! And it will be even better if Rossi can unseat Governor Gregoire. Things are looking better by the day!!!
Wow! This is not following the MSM play book. I love it when things don’t follow the MSM playbook.
This shows closure. Not a lead. Eyes on the prize. Win the battlegrounds. Flip Wisconsin. Flip Pennsylvania. Hold Nevada. Hold New Mexico.
Do that and the victory is won.
You should never refer to Gregoire as “Governor.” That election was stolen.
The consensus view a couple of months ago was that Gregoire was going to win the governorship in a cake walk. What’s happened to change that? The Indian casino debacle or something else?
Guys, anything can happen before the election. Keep focused.
Now he is apparently having fund raising issues AND is being forced to enter into an expensive ad campaign in states that he didn't expect to.
Point is, he's created a giant paid staff that he either has to keep paying or he has to let them go, something that liberals hate to do. Will they stay if they aren't being paid? I doubt that many will. And what will the effect be publicly and on his ground campaign.
He no doubt had built up his ground team in states he wanted to challenge, such as GA, but which are now dominantly McCain. Is he ready in MI?
0bama must have a lot on his mind these days.
have a great day (and weekend!) all.
Michigan 51/46 Obama,Wyoming 58/39 McCain

Acorn and lawyers will have a say about this.
Given that he has not been running TV ads until recently, this suggests a very large organization of paid workers....and they're paid by ABC, CBS, and especially MSNBC, along with some 527s. :')
I’m near Bellingham and have not been able to get any Rossi or McCain signs from the local GOP HQ.
Is anybody else in WA having a similar problem?
sniff sniff -
Scapegoats will have to be found and publicly executed. Intraparty discipline must be at the breaking point. As down ticket candidates begin to understand that, forget coattails, Obama is an anchor in any district where the issue is close, they will begin to distance themselves first passively and physically, then openly with public criticism.
The interest groups like the teachers union, the government Union, the feminists, environmentalists, the gays, virtually all of them except the African-Americans, will demand that " something be done." First lone voices, then a chorus, then an orchestrated cry will become irresistible.
We're approaching the moment of maximum danger when Hillary is added to the ticket.
