…we dodged a bullet there. Forty grand = 100K votes; he was always one heck of a long shot, but if he had been properly funded he would have been able to more directly confront Sen. Boxer. There was always that frightening possibility that he could have goaded the Senator into being… well, Barbara Boxer… and this is a year for primary upsets. If that had happened, we would have been facing a Democrat in the general election who couldn’t be tied to his party’s positions on illegal immigration and public sector unions. I’m not the only Republican out there who found that prospect unappealing.
Fortunately, it’s no longer even a remote possibility – and I can now go back to linking to Kaus safely.
