When you take a moment to step back and really think about that and the make-up of these districts, we have virtually no business competing against Republicans in any of these places. And so the fact these races are even in play is testimony to Scott Walker’s overreach, and the massive organizing and push-back that has been building for this election since February. But these are known, well-liked incumbents who were able to hold their seats during the 2008 Democratic wave. Whatever the outcome, do not lose sight of that very important point.That sounds like pre-spinning defeat. But remember: It could be a trick!
The Democrats need to take down 3 Republican senators, and they have a shot at that. (There are 6 recall elections against Republican incumbents tomorrow.) But if they do that, they will need to win again next week, as 2 Democratic incumbents face recalls.
