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].
- Fake "moderate" Chris Shays (R) is in the hot seat taking undisclosed trips abroad financed by a private entity linked to GOPer Grover Norquist and to an Abramoff crony. Ctdoobee at My Left Nutmeg does some digging into the "Westport Democrats" supporting Shays per his latest mailer. Shays is being challenged by Democrat Diane Farrell in CT-04. [On the web: Diane Farrell]
- In the meantime, make sure you don't miss this video of Richard Nixon and de-facto GOP Senate candidate Joe "Petty Cash" Lieberman talking about Vietnam and Iraq, respectively. [On the web: Ned Lamont]
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]
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]
