    It'd certainly be great to see him come out of a primary bloodied (or not at all), because of this little tidbit:

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell may be a target for Democrats, who have a number of potential candidates to challenge him, including Representative Ben Chandler and Attorney General Greg Stumbo. According to DSCC chairman Chuck Schumer, polling has shown Chandler trailing McConnell by a single point, 45-44, and that when a push question(linking McConnell to President Bush and the war in Iraq) was added, Chandler held a double-digit lead of 55-42, an astonishing total.

    Aw, poor Mitch.

      What's the source for that story? I'd like to read the whole thing.

      •  No story, actually. (0+ / 0-)

        It's just from the Wikipedia entry on 2008 Senate races.  The original source for the numbers can be found here, although it doesn't have much background information (or a link to the original DSCC poll, so there are grains of salt all around).
