    Let's say we get enough votes to recall six of eight, then we still need strong candidates. That could be hard against Cowles or Olsen. The more I think about this the more I am convinced that only four of their seats are actually in play at all and only two, maybe one of our seats are in play.

    The only case in which I think a rematch of 2008 is a likely winner for us is Wasserman vs Darling. Maaaaaybe King vs Hopper since it was so close, but I question the strength of Jessica King against an incumbent. I'd rather see former AG Peg Lautenschlager.

    No idea who could run against Kapanke and Harsdorf.

      It seems to me some of the sentiment out there is to use the threat of recall as a gambit to get the GOP Sentors to change their position on this one issue.  Implied in that could be that the pressure will back off if they do.  This is a HUGE mistake in my mind.  For this to be succesful, Dems need to get a net gain of at least one Senate seat, or it will ignored / not be taken as a serious threat in the future.

      I really need a new signature that is lofty enough for DK4 - but I just haven't eaten enough arugula and sipped enough lattes to come up with one today. Sorry folks!
