Looks about reasonable. Have the nukes been flying or are people starting to come home to the GOP?

Haven't heard much at all about this race in the past week or so.

What's really interesting is that Democrat Conway leads the entire GOP field for governor. But this isn't a slam dunk, because you can count on the right-wing media machine to kick into high gear.

Conway is also much better known than the GOP candidates, and even with that name rec bump, he only leads Comers by 3, not a real convincing margin.

People don't know yet that Comer is a Tea Party member.

For as much as McConnell needs to go, I gotta admit that if Grimes doesn't start talking about the minimum wage and the right to unionize, she won't pull it off.

If we couldn't take out McConnell in a strong Dem wave year in 2008, then it is going to be very tough to win against him this year.

McConnell was running against Bruce Lunsford of all people in 2008.

Bruce freaking Lunsford.

Look closely kids, someone asutely spotted the central issue of this race: Whether the undecided voters' dislike of Obama is sufficiently stronger than their dislike of McConnell to forego supporting Grimes.

Grimes isn't Obama.

But McConnell is McConnell.
