CQ: McConnell is "heavy favorite"

Congressional Quarterly is unimpressed by Bruce Lunsford's attempts to topple Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell:

Democratic strategists are trying to gin up serious longshot challenges to Republican senators who currently are heavy favorites, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, North Carolina Sen. Elizabeth Dole and Texas incumbent John Cornyn. (Emphasis added.)

CQ does not rate Kentucky's Senate race as one of the top five most competitive. Instead, Kentucky falls within the Democrats' dream of winning a "filibuster-proof" majority of 60 seats that would allow a President Obama to tax us until we scream "Messiah."
