He is, he isn’t?  Rumor has it Chris Matthews is eyeing a Senate run in 2010.  UGH.  I’ll admit I’ve never been a fan.

Anyone Ready for 2010?

I’m not sure I am.  I feel like this election is never going to end.  I figure my family has been campaigning actively or working on campaigns since May of 2007, and won’t be done for another 2 weeks…atleast!  Ugh.  So when I hear someone mention the upcoming elections in 2009, 2010, or God forbid 2012, I cringe more than just a little.

However, I came across a pretty interesting article about Senate races to watch in 2010.  Hey, I’ll admit, anything that gets me to a 60 seat Democratic Majority is of great interest to me!  What I found particularly interesting was the idea that Tom Tancredo may run for Senate in Colorado. 

I’m just going to come right out and say the guy’s a nut!  Seriously.  I think he may be a little unhinged.  All I think of when I think of former Congressman Tancredo is that crazy ass ad he ran while campaigning for President.  I’ve pasted below for amusement.  If you haven’t seen it before you may wonder if it is an ad or a spoof.  Humorously enough, it’s a real ad!  What’s even funnier than the B Movie scare tactics is the up-lifting Church like music playing in the background. 

Enjoy.

Not really, but just as amusing.  Things look to get infinitely more interesting in Minnesota as the recount continues.  The Franken camp is claiming Coleman now leads by a mere 84 votes.

In addition, Team Franken is alleging there are missing ballots.

Chambliss and Martin Running Neck and Neck

Many polls have Chambliss and Martin in a pretty tight race.  Some have Chambliss leading, but within the margin of error.

Well How Very Big of them

Apparently Congress will be back at work early in the New Year.  Typically they don’t start voting on anything till mid to late January.  However this year they will be working on a huge economic stimulus package the new President wants. 

Good.

Biden’s former Chief of Staff, Ted Kaufman, will be taking his Senate Seat.  The appointment comes from Delaware’s Governor Ruth Minner.

Turning Out the Vote in Georgia

Republicans aren’t the only ones bringing heavy hitters to the Georgia for the Senate seat runoff.  President Clinton made an appearance last Wednesday and Al Gore was out this weekend supporting Democratic challenger Jim Martin.  Apparently the President Elect has made a radio ad, but no appearance is planned. 

I still think he needs to get to Georgia!  It very well may end up being the key to holding the Senate with a 60 seat majority.
