#rsrh Herb Kohl (D, WI) cuts and runs.

I don’t have anything else to add to Dan McLaughlin’s excellent summation of the situation except that title, mind you – but I enjoy writing titles like that too much to simply pass it up because I’m running behind this morning.  So.  Kohl’s out.

This should be an interesting race, by the way, if only because the Democrats have the potential to actually nominate somebody who’s, well, interesting.  And I’m with Ed Morrissey: Feingold’s not really a good option for the Democrats.  He’d be better off trying to topple Walker in 2014.  Note 2014: judging from the way things are going for Wisconsin right now, a recall next year is dead on arrival.  In fact, I’m starting to wonder if any WI state senators are going to get recalled.

Huh.  Guess I did have at least a little to add.

    What makes you say that? The Unions got one open R seat in the elections a week or so ago in the area represented by the weakest of the R senators up for recall. Seems he’s likely to go down.

    I’m just curious where the confidence is coming from…

      I’m not discounting the possibility (hence, ‘starting to wonder’); but the recall drives crested below expectations on both sides, and I’m seeing a certain disgust with the whole thing start to appear in local news and opinion services. That argues to me that retaining the status quo may end up being the safe bet, after all.
