    The video was just devastating. Judd needs to end the speculation now.

      That the video had a lot of bad clips, and there's other stuff out there as well, I'm sure. But Kyrsten Sinema had a number of bad things in a similar vein "in her jacket," so to speak, and she survived. Obviously a very different district/state, but I think Kentucky's demographics matter more than anything Judd's said. (Sort of like how Nebraska's demographics mattered more than anything Bob Kerrey had said.)

        The things in that video that hurt Judd, including things Judd has said, hurt precisely because of Kentucky's demographics and resulting politics.

        They are not really two different things.

        Again, I admit surprise that even a poll this early would show Judd down only 4 to McConnell.  But no way do I see her doing better in an actual election than a 15-point loss, and I'd expect more like 20.

        Now, if Mitch gets teabagged, things get interesting......
