It's a start.
Darryl has the takeaway from Public Policy Polling's new look at Maria Cantwell's re-election prospects...
Cantwell’s reasonably popular and the GOP doesn’t have anyone good to run against her.As regular readers might know, Maria Cantwell is, in fact, wildly popular here at Upper Left World Headquarters, so any good news for the Senator is good news to me. Heck, "reasonably popular" seems like pretty high praise for any politician these days, so I'm encouraged.
We can't be complacent, though. The weakness of their bench notwithstanding, there will be a Republican on the ballot and there will be investors willing to lie, cheat and steal to secure this seat for that Republican.
Good news is good, but there's always work to do.
