Does Mass. upset spell trouble for Patty Murray?Since you asked, no.
Not even a maybe? Well, should the Republicans come up with a personable and photogenic candidate who's got some exposure and experience but little enough to successfully obscure his positions on a few key issues, and Patty decided to take a few months off so that the entire campaign was compressed into a few weeks, and our state enacted legislation that would make the spotlight issue of the last year's legislative efforts in DC largely irrelevant to their lives, and after returning from her election vacation Patty openly dismissed the value of voter outreach, then yeah, maybe there could be trouble that was somehow related to the vote in Massachusetts yesterday.
In other words, no.
