More Good News From The Senate

Challenger Mike Brouchard (R) has cracked the top ten of of highly competive election races, according to the WaPo, and threatens to unseat unpopular incumbent Debbie Stabenow:

10. Michigan: In a cycle that has given Republicans little reason for optimism, this race is one of the few that brings a smile to GOP strategists. Why? Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard (R) won a surprisingly easy primary victory last month and hails from the right part of the state to be competitive in the general election. Republicans believe incumbent Debbie Stabenow (D) is imminently beatable, arguing that she has accomplished almost nothing during her six years in the Senate. But Stabenow has been consistently underestimated during her political career and defeating her will be no easy task. Still, recent polling shows this race is winnable for Republicans -- especially considering the dismal economic conditions in the state. (Previous ranking: N/A)

This is doable.

It seems so absurd and trivial, but elections do seem to turn on not "the economy" generally, but about the price of gas at election time.

Someone had a great article about this that I linked but Google is, it seems, utterly retarded anymore. It barely finds anything anymore.

Donate! Rightroots allows you to donate to... well, anyone Rightroots has endorsed, with just a click.

If you want to support Brouchard, or other Rightroots-endorsed candidates, click on the link above.

Thanks to Mary Katherine Ham.

Cost of Oil Charted Against Republican Prospects: They move in nearly perfect tandem. Which you could see if the gif was actually visible, which, at the moment, it's not.

I knew I should have swiped that chart for my own site.

Thanks to search-engine ninja master IreneFingIrene.
