    I think that's a reasonable concern, but I think in the current environment things may work out to be more about splitting the anti-establishment vote than splitting the Democratic vote. I've heard a number of people say they're deciding between Weaver and Mara -- something I find amazing.

    If you're having trouble deciding between a Wellstone progressive and a guy who launched his political career in 2008 by knocking out Carol Schwartz in the Republican primary for the unforgivable sin of supporting legislation to require businesses to provide sick leave for their workers, then I hope you'll do a little more research on your choices.

    Also, with a low-turnout special election, winning is more about getting your supporters to the polls than persuading voters in general. The vast majority of people who are registered will not be voting.
