This is undoubtedly of great concern to both Feingold and Reid.  Opinions of them in their respective states are pretty well set.  Feingold has been in the Senate for eighteen years, Reid for twenty-four.  There’s very little either will be able to do to convince people they deserve another term.  Instead, both will undoubtedly emphasize how their opponents do not deserve to be elected.  That was Corzine’s basic strategy.  It didn’t work for the former New Jersey Governor, and my intuition is that the same will be true for Feingold and Reid as well.

4. Questions? I'll be diving back into the mailbag later in the week, so if you have a question you think I could answer, send me an email: jay.p.cost@gmail.com.
