Bull asks a good question — what happened? Here’s what I think.
Right now there is a lull. About October things will pick up again. The conventional wisdom right now is that the GOP is going to hold the Governor’s mansion, the House, the Senate, the Insurance Commissioner, and the School Super’s post. The GOP will finish its transition to majority party by taking the Lt. Gov’s spot and the Secretary of State’s spot. The Democrats will hold Ag, Attorney General, and Labor.
This election seems more to be about status quo than anything else. And right now it’s boring. i’d love more coverage of state house and state senate races, as well as local races. I do suspect, however, that things will heat up mightily in just a week or so. The GOP will make a last ditch effort to pick off some more of the state wide offices and the Dems will do the same.
The question right now for me is still who the heck is Gail Buckner?
