1/31/10 – Campaign Update
Another good week of news for the GOP – this time, Republican Congressman John Boozman of Arkansas has tossed his hat into the ring to compete against Blanche Lincoln. With the Republican’s highest federal official in Arkansas now prepared to take Lincoln on, Arkansas just keeps getting better!
Meanwhile, Rasmussen came out with a shocking poll – former governor and HHS Secretary Tommy Thompson leads incumbent Democrat Russ Feingold 47-44 in a hypothetical matchup. This came just one day after Rasmussen found Evan Bayh of Indiana vulnerable to a GOP challenge by Congressman Mike Pence (who has declared his intention to remain in the House).
Besides Obama’s State of the Union address (and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s strong response – again, thanks Virginia!), the political front has largely remained stagnant.
