I realize everyone’s “Hey, Paul, Hey Paul, Hey Paul, let’s have a ball”, but the Senate and House are also important, and there were two important Senate primaries last night.
The good news is that WWF’s own Linda MacMahon beat moderate Chris Shays for the Connecticut Senate primary, which immediately made Rep Chris Murphy the odds-on favorite to win that seat. The bad news is that none of the teabaggers beat Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin, so Tammy Baldwin will have a tougher fight to win that open seat. Connie Mack won in Florida, which was expected, so Bill Nelson now has his challenger.
There were also some fights in House primaries in Florida, but as far as I can tell, they were in pretty safe Republican seats. The news of the night is that Cliff Stearns apparently lost to his teabagger challenger, a veterinarian who’s never held office.
