White House's view of 2002 Senate races
The White House political director views the following Senate races as competitive:
On the Republican side, the GOP is sweating Arkansas and New Hampshire, while Maine, North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Colorado and Oregon might also be endangered.
I didn't think North Carolina or Tennessee were remotely competitive for the Dems at this time. But the fact that the White House included them in their analysis could be significant. At the very least it forces Republicans to mobilize resources for campaigns in two states that should've been safe GOP seats. The fact that that they also have to defend Texas and Colorado makes things that much more difficult for Republicans.Posted June 09, 2002 11:48 AM | Comments (0)
