      ... and inherent unpredictability of summer primaries and runoffs than for its questionable source.

      Here in the 4th, it's no surprise to see a surge of interest in an Anti-McKinney. Most people (including Rep. McKinney herself) assumed she'd win again. She's got a great machine, and nobody's really paying attention to the race in the summer. (Although they sure should -- it's a Dem district, and the November vote is irrelevant). Hats off to McKinney on this one thing -- she has a terrific GOTV machine.

      Because of the close primary and the required runoff, a lot of local Dems are much more atune, and who knows whether or not they'll actually show up on Tuesday?

      Too close to call.
