From the "Don't Panic" file.
Chris Bowers is worried…
Washington: If two-time Gubernatorial loser Dino Rossi were to enter the campaign against Patty Murray, he would start the campaign 2% ahead, according to Rasmussen polling.
Take a deep breath, Chris. I doubt that you'll find anyone close to the ground here in the upper left who believes that this bit of "Rasmussen recruitment" has a meaningful relationship with reality. Not that we don't have to get the work done to get Patty re-elected, but if the work gets done, she will be re-elected. I think she'll be a potent top of the ticket, too, helping in some competetive down ballot races.
But don't rest, either. There's work to do.
