Downballot

The interest in the election and the wave of revulsion against the Bush administration is making life interesting for a lot of so-called “safe” Republicans like Elizabeth Dole in North Carolina, Mitch McConnell in Kentucky, Saxby Chambliss in Georgia, and Norm Coleman in Minnesota. Plus, congressional races are showing a lot of volatility; here in Miami we are being inundated with ads for the Diaz-Balart brothers who are in tight races to hang on to their seats. That’s a far cry from the time when I couldn’t vote for (or against) Lincoln Diaz-Balart because he was unopposed.

This is a seismic election, folks.
