We ran some subpar Senate candidates yet again. Not a shock Brown lost in far left Mass, but it’s clear we need to do a better job of nominating Senate candidates. Akin was a joke and everyone that continued backing him instead of urging him to get out did us a big disservice. Mourdock turned out to be a poor candidate and once he began pontificating on the rape/abortion issue it was all over. He should have just shut up, but bad candidates do dumb things. Retread Allen still had the “macaca” Washington Post smear weighing him down. McMahon is a stupid, laughable candidate in Conn. Just poor candidates elsewhere too.
If Kerry is made SOS there will be a special election in Mass & Brown will run for that seat next year. Without Obama on the ticket Brown might get that seat back.
