Tuesday is six weeks before election day. There's still time for Hulshof to salvage the race.
Farther down the ballot, there's a mixed bag for the GOP. Peter Kinder has a big lead for reelection as lieutenant governor and Brad Lager has an 8 point lead in the race for treasurer. But Benedict Arnold (a.k.a. Chris Koster) leads Mike Gibbons 46% to 40% in the attorney general's race and Robin Carnahan leads Brad Lager by eleven.
Again, Tuesday - tomorrow - is six weeks before election day. With the presidential ticket of John McCain and Sarah Palin energizing the Republican base, November 4, 2008, could be a good day for Missouri after all . . . but we're a long way and a lot of hard work away from victory right now.
