Simon to challenge Boxer
If California "businessman" and failed guvernatorial candidate Bill Simon couldn't beat our horribly unpopular and uninspiring governor, Gray Davis, what makes him think he can take on Sen. Barbara Boxer?
Let's hope he does run. As one of the most liberal members of the Senate, Boxer would be vulnerable from a challenge by a moderate Republican. But the far-right Simon would be easy fodder for Boxer.
Simon's failure to capitalize on Davis' unpopularity, combined with his campaign's disarray -- as seen in an embarrassing flip-flop on gay rights issues -- prompted veteran GOP adviser Lyn Nofziger to dismiss Simon as "too dumb" to be elected and national pundits to label him "the political loser of the year."Posted February 22, 2003 09:40 AM | Comments (23)
