Politico ain’t too happy about it – yeah, I’m broken up about that, too – but Linda McMahon seems to be making it a race over in CT-SEN. I particularly enjoyed this bit from Joe Lieberman:
Even retiring Sen. Joe Lieberman, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, said Murphy has a ways to go to catch up with McMahon. Lieberman, who is staying neutral in the race, cited McMahon’s effective campaigning and the state’s independent streak. More than two in five voters is registered as unaffiliated.
“It looks like a closer race than most people would have guessed … She’s smart, capable. And what can I say, but she’s obviously getting her message across better this time. Also, to be fair, Dick Blumenthal was a very formidable candidate,” Lieberman told POLITICO.
Damn, but that was cold. Say what you like about Joe, but the man knows which end of the knife is which. And where the best place on the back is to insert one.
PS: It seems that Ms. McMahon learned something from her last Senate campaign. I find this… gratifying.
