I've got a feeling Dayton is going to lose in 2006 and Coleman is going to lose in 2008. Anyone have any thoughts?

Although he is vulnerable, I think Dayton will likely edge out a close victory in Minnesota unless his opponent is Mark Kennedy.  If Kennedy runs, Dayton will probably lose.  Ive heard from others that Kennedy is very popular in Minnesota and will be the toughest opponent for Dayton.  Your from Minnesota so maybe you could ellaborate on that?  Now, Norm Coleman.  I believe he is gearing up to run for president in 2008.

Coleman would certainly be the guy to stop Minnesota's run of voting democrat in presidential elections.

I don't know the status of Norm Coleman's popularity or lack thereof in Minnesota at present.  Of course, it's still over three years away, so it's not that relevant right now.

Mark Dayton is obviously one of the two most vulnerable Democrat senators up in 2006 (Bill Nelson being the other).  He will have to campaign hard in order to win there.

I don't know who told you that, but it's hardly true. Kennedy hasn't even broken 60% in his own congressional district, he's hardly very popular statewide. In fact, I'd consider him the weakest candidate out of Minnesota's 4 GOP Congressmen. The strongest would be Jim Ramstad, but he almost certainly will not run.

And if Coleman wants to run for president on a record of a 1 term Senator who hasn't done anything and just is a complete party hack, he can go ahead. But he will be very beatable in 2008 if he runs agin.

I was just browsing over at another board and I saw someone say Kennedy was popular and may beat Dayton.

Kennedy is pretty close to "generic GOP candidate". And in Minnesota generic GOP candidates may come close, but they usually don't win.

I'm hoping you never suggested Barack Obama for President in 2008. He actually wouldn't even be a one term Senator....more like a half of a term.

Good. It really is too bad people think he's ready to run for President. A few months ago, the guy was still a State Senator.

I agree. He needs to develop in the US senate first and see where the country is 10-12 years from now. By then this country may be ready for an African American preisdent, but right now I cant see it happening. Still, its not everyday that a young, charismatic, intelligent, political star rises. You cant blame the Dem's for being excited about the guy.

True. When your farm system is empty, any good new player tends to elicit a lot of attention.

I know I want Santorum out, but I hope we don't lose Dayton.  This is definitely going to drain from the DSCC's effort to oust Santorum.  You would think the Dems minimum has bottomed out, but it seems it's only getting worse.  I was also hoping for pickups in Missouri and Virginia.

According to Politics1.com, former Senator Rod Grams has announced that he is considering another run for Senate. Dayton beat Grams by about 5 points in 2000.

Dayton isn't running anymore, but if he was. Grams v. Dayton would be a lot closer in 06 than in 2000, now that everybody has seen who Senator Mark Dayton really is....
