MASSACHUSETTS SENATE RACE MOVED FROM "LEAN DEM" TO "TOSS-UP"
The Massachusetts Senate race between Republican Scott Brown and Democrat Martha Coakley was moved from “lean democrat” to “toss-up” today.
The Brown Camp is Excited:
Via The Rothenberg Political Report:
Democratic desperation and other compelling evidence strongly suggest that Democrats may well lose the late Senator Edward Kennedy’s Senate seat in Tuesday’s special election. Because of this, we are moving our rating of the race from Narrow Advantage for the Incumbent Party to Toss-Up.
Whatever the shortcomings of the Coakley campaign (and they certainly exist), this race has become about change, President Obama and Democratic control of all of the levers of power in Washington, D.C. Brown has “won” the “free media” over the past few days, and if he continues to do so, he will win the election.
Michelle Malkin weighed in on the race this morning on FOX and Friends:
More… Rudy Giuliani is heading to Massachusetts to campaign for Scott Brown.
Obama cuts lame video for Coakley.
UPDATE: Baseball great Curt Schilling wrote this today about Coakley’s faltering campaign:
…Finally, has she forgotten who she’s talking to? What state she’s wanting to represent in the Senate? It’s Massachusetts. You do not make sneering insults about Fenway Park. What’s she going to do next, insult the Red Sox? That’d really just be the cherry on top of a delightful campaign. Fenway Park and the Red Sox are damned near sacred to Massachusetts residents, Bostonians in particular. Really, I’m starting to think that she just doesn’t want to get elected or something. Because anyone with half a modicum of sense knows that you do not go into Boston and mess with Fenway Park.
