Bleeding Heartland: How demoralized are the Republicans?
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Very demoralized, judging by Steve King's latest comments to the
press: "Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King said a lack of
enthusiasm in the Republican Party will make it difficult for the GOP
to regain control of the U.S. House." ... I wouldn't be surprised if
Republican turnout in King's own district this November is
substantially down on 2004 levels, because John McCain has never been
popular with hard-core conservatives. Less than a week remains in the
second fundraising quarter--go give some cash to Rob Hubler, who is
challenging King. So the U.S. House races don't look great for
Republicans. What about the Senate? Well, Senator John Ensign of
Nevada chairs the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, and he
said two weeks ago that losing only three Senate seats "would be a
terrific night for us, absolutely."
