Dems Scrape Bottom of Barrel as Crit Says "No Thanks"

Kentucky Democrats took a major blow today when State Auditor Crit Luallen announced that she will not run against Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. Luallen was the Dem's second choice, after Congressman Ben Chandler declined to run against McConnell earlier this year.

Third-tier candidate Greg Stumbo likewise appears to be getting cold feet. Stumbles now says that he's considering running for his former seat in the State House. Perhaps when he called "some of the wealthiest people in the world" last week and asked them to "invest" in him, they hung up.

Or maybe McConnell's TV ads made Luallen and Stumbles rethink their plans.

That leaves two other candidates who cannot be regarded as serious threats: Dr. Michael Cassaro, Esq, whom nobody ever heard of before he announced, and David L. Williams. Just last month, Williams' bid for Agriculture Commissioner imploded when he called for the elimination of the Kentucky State Legislature.

Now that voters recognize that the troop surge in Iraq is working, moreover, Andrew Horne has lost the anti-war issue that he used when he ran for Congress.

All the Democrats' talk about McConnell's supposed vulnerability is starting to look rather silly.
