The Left Coaster: Election 2006 State of the States Roundup


by eriposte

NATIONAL:

CO: Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R) (perhaps Colorado's biggest disgrace) is trying to deceive her way out of the appallingly poor rating she got from the Disabled American Veterans. A veteran who lost his voice in Vietnam has responded to her in an ad - take a look. Democrat Angie Paccione is fighting Musgrave for the latter's Congressional seat in CO-04 and has an internal poll claiming she is running neck and neck with her egregious opponent. [On the web: Angie Paccione].

CT:

IL: This story writes itself: "Mark Kirk Staffer Blackmailing Tel Aviv University National President?". Who's Mark Kirk? He's the guy Democrat Dan Seals is running against in competitive race in IL-10. [On the web: Dan Seals]

KY: Another Bush Rubber-Stamp Republican in Congress in the throes of desperation - Anne Northrup. Her challenger Democrat John Yarmuth is running a strong race in KY-03. [On the web: John Yarmuth]

MA: MA is not on my radar that much but at face value the depraved attacks of Republican Kerry Healey seem to be working to the advantage of her opponent -- Democrat Deval Patrick - who has been endorsed by MA's Police Chiefs and is on the path to becoming the next Governor of Massachusetts. [On the web: Deval Patrick]

NY: Bush Rubber Stamp Sue Kelly "cutting and running" again and again from public questioning in NY-19 - three must-see videos at Take 19. The Democrat running against her is John Hall who just made the DCCC's Red2Blue list. [On the web: John Hall]
